Mold Prevention, Remediation & Removal

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1910 & 1926

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

Mold is a fungus that breaks down organic materials, such as downed trees, fallen leaves, and dead animals. Exposure to mold can cause allergic and irritant symptoms, such as runny nose, red eyes, asthma attacks, and localized skin infection. When mold makes its way indoors in a moist environment, it gradually damages building materials and furnishing.

This mold certification course details the best work practices where exposure to mold is likely. It provides information on applicable regulations and agencies for mold, mold prevention, and mold remediation in the construction and general industries. The topics covered in this mold training online course will help workers understand and identify mold, what causes mold growth, and the best methods of remediation.

This course is for:
This OSHA mold training course is designed for anyone who works in mold maintenance, mold remediation, or any environment where exposure to mold is likely. This safety training may help prevent serious adverse health effects caused by mold exposure.

This online certification course meets the requirements set forth by OSHA for mold remediation and prevention in both the construction and general industries.

Case Study: For nine years, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition aired in the United States. The show focused on families in need, and worked with local volunteers as well as builders, designers, and their crews to remodel or rebuild a home over the course of a week. In one specific instance, a Kokomo, Indiana, family was selected for an episode. The family had an immunocompromised daughter who, after meeting and becoming friends with another girl who had leukemia, raised over $35,000 for the American Cancer Society. However, the family home of the immunocompromised little girl, due to the location and the way their home was built, collected water that led to mold growth. Family members experienced many negative health effects, such as polyps and severe asthma attacks, and were restricted to the upstairs portion of the deteriorating home. When they tore down the old house, the family was instructed to only hold onto items that had sentimental value, due to the nature of mold growth.

Key Takeaway: Mold can affect anyone who is exposed to it. It is especially harmful to people who are immunocompromised.

Governing Regulations

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, is charged with the enforcement of safety and health conditions of workers through the use of regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. OSHA regulations are published in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 1910 covers general industry regulations, while 1926 is designated for construction industry standards.

OSHA does not specifically regulate mold; however, there are several standards that apply in different situations. Employers must protect the safety and health of employees involved in mold prevention and remediation according to OSHA's General Industry Standards (29 CFR 1910), Construction Standards (29 CFR 1926), and the General Duty Clause of the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act.

    Exam

It will take a MINIMUM of 2 hours to complete this online course. The student may log on and off as needed. A bookmark will be set so when they log back in they will return to where they left off.

We have no restrictions on how long a person takes to complete a course. Likewise, if you are purchasing for others, we have no time limit on assigning courses. So you can purchase a larger quantity than you currently need and take advantage of volume discounts.

Employers are responsible for training new personnel before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to hazards such as mold growth.

To ensure compliance with OSHA mold certification requirements, safety training must be conducted periodically and as-needed to ensure the work environment is free from recognized hazards. Refresher training should also occur whenever changes to the worksite, equipment, or tasks render previous training obsolete. OSHA standards related to mold do not specify a time frame for required retraining or recertification; however, the OSH Act General Duty Clause defines that each employer must ensure that worksites are free from recognized hazards. This mold remediation certification online course meets these training requirements.

Each student will receive 0.2 CEUs (or 2 CMEs) from Compliance Training Online® for completing this course.

Mold Prevention, Remediation & Removal

I believe that every carpenter, construction worker should go through a (mandatory) certification with lead, mold and asbestos inneverybstaye. Too many (butcher carlenters) who don't know how to even solve an issue that is simple in many cases. Diminish the dampnakd diminish the future mold... Test was simple and a little hard to answer. Good though.
