What’s in the Mold Training Course?
Our Mold training course is perfect for people who work in conditions that may produce mold. This class discusses topics including exposure & disease, prevention, remediation, hazards, and more.
This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam.
Why do I need knuckle boom training?
OSHA doesn’t have a specific standard for mold training. However, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that “is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees.”
Canada’s government also does not have any federal standards or recommendations for working with mold. However, each province and territory has their own occupational health and safety acts that require safe work places for employees.
Because of this requirement, employers have a legal and ethical obligation to develop and maintain a workplace that is free from hazards associated with mold. Employees have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety and well-being of all.

It was later revealed that archeologists who wore respirators survived and were thus not exposed to the mold within. (Source: Nationalgeographic.com)
