Clean-up and hazard management

Here are a few tips to help get your business back to normal.

  • Assume there may be hazards in your work place – such as downed ceiling tiles, spilled kitchen contents etc.
  • Assume any exposed wires are live
  • Wear appropriate personal protective equipment when cleaning up any spills
  • Expect dust and dirt to be expelled from air-conditioning ducts when the aircon is switched back on
  • Contact Survive- it if you require spill kits or PPE

Review and update

Large scale business interruption provides an opportunity to reflect and review:

  • Evacuation plans
  • Business continuity plans
  • Check contact lists are up to date

Human factors
