The general clean-up and recovery from the recent weather-related natural disasters such as the Queensland floods and cyclone can potentially expose workers and volunteers to several hazardous materials including asbestos, sewerage, bacteria and chemicals.
It is important for workers in these hazardous environments to wear the correct PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). Where possible, the PPE must be certified to the appropriate standards relating to these hazards.
