General recommendations after a mass movement

Following a mass movement, any damage should be assessed and reported so that it can be rectified as soon as possible. The following points should be observed:

  • Report damage to the buildings insurer. Do not remove damaged parts of buildings, fixtures, fittings or furniture until they have been inspected by the insurance experts.
  • In case of damage to load-bearing elements of the building (supporting columns, walls), have the structural safety examined by a structural engineer.
  • Evaluate your personal experience of the incident and take action. Consult experts on measures to prevent future damage.
