Emergency management & recovery | Clean up & secure your business

Whether it was a fire, flood, cyclone, earthquake, tsunami or another type of natural disaster, the clean up can be quite substantial. Often there are significant health concerns with revisiting the area, so ensure you protect yourself, your employees and any volunteers during a clean up. Local authorities such as the State Emergency Services (SES) and Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) agency can help provide you with the information you need to protect yourself and any volunteers during the clean up effort.

During the clean up, your initial impact assessment will be able to guide you as to what is salvageable and can be kept, and what can be thrown away or recycled. You’ll need to communicate your plans to any helpers, to avoid any crucial items becoming lost.

Arrange security

Unfortunately, in the wake of a disaster protecting what’s left of your assets from looters may become essential. If a number of businesses are located in close proximity, you could work out a shared security arrangement.
