Located in Orlando, Florida, Applied Environmental Health & Safety, Inc. provides professional environmental mold testing and assessments to schools, commercial buildings, industry and residential homes throughout Central Florida.
By employing thermal imaging and a moisture meter, inspectors can locate moisture issues before they become large problems and lead to serious damage, as well as gather details in cases where moisture intrusion has already become obvious.
When mold growth occurs in buildings, it may be followed by reports of health symptoms from some building occupants, particularly those with allergies or respiratory problems. Potential health effects and symptoms associated with mold exposures include allergic reactions, asthma, and other respiratory complaints. If mold is a problem in your school or commercial building, you must clean up the mold and eliminate sources of moisture.
Schools and Commercial Buildings
Applied Environmental Health & Safety, Inc. will evaluate your facilities, perform air, surface and/or bulk sampling to determine the indoor air quality. Samples are then submitted to a American Industrial Hygiene (AIHA) accredited laboratory for analysis.
Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings
The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) mandates safety standards for the workplace to protect employees from recognized hazards.
Mold is addressed in specific standards for the general industry, shipyard employment, and the construction industry.
Section 5(a)(1) of the OSH Act, often referred to as the General Duty Clause, requires employers to "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". Section 5(a)(2) requires employers to "comply with occupational safety and health standards promulgated under this Act."
