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

Click to Learn More How often is retraining or recertification required?

OSHA has not specified any time frame for required retraining or recertification for Mold, Mold Prevention, and Mold Remediation. Since there is no OSHA standard dealing with this specific hazard the OSH Act general duty clause, section 5(a)(1), 29 U.S.C. 654(b)(1) defines the standard which provides that:

(a) Each employer -

(1) shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.

A recognized hazard is a danger recognized by the employer's industry or industry in general, by the employer, or by common sense. The general duty clause does not apply if there is an OSHA standard dealing with the hazard, unless the employer knows that the standard does not adequately address the hazard.
