The city of Houston developed a countering human trafficking risk strategy as part of post-disaster for the business community. This includes understanding human trafficking and labor exploitation and post disaster risks. In the aftermaths of a disaster, a sudden demand for workers can lead to the exploitation of workers. There has been a precedent of legal cases related to Hurricane Katrina and related to the oil and gas industry. In areas where oil and gas development increases and especially in remote areas where workers and services may be limited, there is a risk for illicit labor recruiters to provide workers to contractors in their supply chain. This presentation will discuss potential risks to the industry and provide recommendations for intervention and prevention of labor exploitation.
