Cleaning up after floods and storms

Information for home renovators, businesses and volunteers who are involved with a clean up and recovery of buildings damaged by floods, storms and other natural disasters.

Employers and workers involved in the flood and storm recovery efforts must still remember their obligations under Queensland's health and safety laws.

These laws are in place to protect Queenslanders. By being vigilant and maintaining safety during this difficult time, you can help reduce the risk of death, injury and illness to yourself, your workers and others involved in the clean up and repair effort.
