Success 

The Mold Prevention, Remediation, and Removal for Construction Training course is an awareness-level training designed to describe the best practices for mold prevention, remediation, and cleanup, along with a focus on the measures required to protect the health of building occupants and workers involved in mold cleanup and remediation.

The guidelines in this course are primarily intended for building managers, custodians, and others responsible for building maintenance, but may also be useful as a basic reference for those involved in mold remediation. Contractors and other professionals (for example, industrial hygienists or other environmental health and safety professionals) who respond to mold and moisture situations in buildings, and members of the general public, may also find these guidelines helpful.

Scientific research on the relationship between mold exposures and health effects is ongoing. This means that the guidelines for mold prevention, remediation, and cleanup are subject to change as more information becomes available.

The core objective of the Mold Prevention, Remediation, and Removal for Construction Training course is to familiarize workers with OSHA and EPA recommendations and best practices for mold prevention, remediation, and cleanup.
It is important to note that at present, there are no federal standards or recommendations from regulatory or health agencies (e.g., OSHA, EPA, CDC) for acceptable airborne concentrations of mold or mold spores. Scientific research on the relationship between mold exposures and health effects is ongoing. There are, however, several OSHA standards that may be applicable in specific situations, including standards for general industry (29 CFR 1910), shipyard employment (29 CFR 1915), and construction (29 CFR 1926).

Course Objectives

After completing the Mold Prevention, Remediation, and Removal for Construction Training course, the learner will be able to:
  • Understand what mold is and where it is commonly found;
  • Define the terms “Building-Related Illnesses (BRIs)” and “Sick Building Syndrome (SBS)”;
  • Explain why mold is a problem in the indoor environment;
  • Discuss the health effects associated with mold exposure;
  • Understand the specific practices for preventive maintenance of buildings, crawl spaces, HVAC systems, furnace humidifiers, and toilet and bathroom areas;
  • List the equipment used for mold assessment and remediation;
  • Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of mold sampling;
  • Describe the methods generally used for mold cleanup and understand why “biocides” are not recommended for use as a routine practice;

A Final Note

It is important to remember that attending a training course on its own will not make a worker competent. Competence is developed over time by implementing the knowledge acquired through a training course to on-the-job work processes. Therefore, in addition to this online course, it is important that you receive additional on-site training from your employer.

Answer:

Mold growth is common in both indoor and outdoor environments. Mold is a substantial problem in the indoor environment because when mold spores land on a moist surface and start to grow, they gradually destroy or digest the things they grow on and compromise the structural integrity of buildings and appearance of furnishings. Additionally, mold growth in buildings can lead to unpleasant odors and can trigger health effects and allergic reactions in some individuals. Therefore, people who work in potentially mold-contaminated areas must understand the best practices for preventing exposure and structural damage to buildings and other fixtures.
