A statement released by a Veolia spokesperson said employees would be offered counselling and support after one of the environmental services company's workers died yesterday.

"At this very difficult time, we are focusing on supporting Mark's family, friends and workmates," the statement read.

"This is a tragic loss and our thoughts are with all of Mark's loved ones.

"Veolia has engaged its Employee Assistance Program Provider for counselling and support services.

"Support has been offered to all employees and their families.

"The company has also undertaken additional safety and incident briefings and "toolbox sessions" across its operations in Queensland in the past few hours."
