Restoration, Recovery & Mitigation of Water-Damaged Buildings After Hurricanes, Fires & Other Disasters

Summary: In 2007, I worked in a hospital that was surrounded by the San Diego wildfires. The skies were dark, ashes rained everywhere and air quality was poor. Thousands of residents were evacuated, businesses were shut down and healthcare facilities were evacuated. However, the greatest challenges occurred during the mitigation process necessary to begin clean up and to reopen businesses. Our hospital needed to start building reoccupancy after a fire department representative recommended that we work with a remediation and recovery consultant to clean the damaged products and buildings. This article provides guidelines in remediation, recovery and mitigation for water-damaged buildings and goods.

What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
