A Brief Guide To Mold In The Workplace
OSHA Provides Guidelines on Mold Allergy Symptoms, Mold Prevention, and Mold Clean Up Steps
If you are an office building owner, facility manager, or mold remediation professional you should use the link below to read an excellent, thorough article provided by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA).
Sick building syndrome and mold allergy symptoms are not isolated to office buildings. It can be a problem in any building large or small. Therefore, this OSHA article would be beneficial to anyone dealing with a mold problem in buildings of any size, including homes, schools, apartment buildings, dorms, warehouses, hotels, cruise ships, and athletic facilities.
The article is not “brief” as its title claims. However, it is worth grabbing a cup of coffee and spending the time to read it from top to bottom. It offers some excellent information and facts related to mold allergens and their effect on health and property.
The article also offers some helpful, detailed advice on how to prevent mold as well as guidelines on how to properly conduct mold remediation clean-up and mold removal efforts.
With regards to the remediation guidelines offered in this article, OSHA does a nice job of listing mold removal safety guidelines that are based on the size of the mold remediation project.
Don’t forget to scroll down to the bottom of the article to review OSHA’s recommendations on personal protective equipment and remediation equipment. You don’t want your workers to get mold allergy symptoms from airborne mold spores and mycotoxins.
It is interesting to note that OSHA strongly cautions against using toxic biocides. This is yet another reason why our non-toxic Endurance BioBarrier mold cleaner and mold preventative products are the right solution for mold remediation projects of any size.
