Bushfire Health Risk Advice
Queensland Health has prepared this advisory notice to assist in worker health risk assessment and the application of protection measures from major bushfire events.
Community health risk advice recognises that there are a range of vulnerable groups in the community such as frail and elderly, infants and children that are not present in the workplaces.
As such these groups have not been included in the advice, which has been developed specifically for outdoor workers undertaking physical activities.
Employers are responsible for implementing the workplace measures mentioned within the notice.
