Web seminar to present ‘Action Plan for Mold’
|About This Event|
|Mold: An Action Plan for Buildings|
Mold can grow in all types of buildings, regardless of size, history or location. It can pose risks, not only to the structure of a building, but also to its occupants. Mold can aggravate asthma symptoms, trigger allergic reactions and cause respiratory complications. The potential for liability in these cases is real.
“Mold: An Action Plan For Buildings” can help facility executives address mold problems. The live Web seminar, presented by Building Operating Management, will be led by Taylor Gonsoulin, general manager, building consulting group, Air Quality Sciences.
The seminar will be held Oct. 25 at 11 a.m. EST.
“Web seminars are a very convenient way to learn about timely issues like mold,” says Wendy Loerch, director of information for Building Operating Management. “Attendees just need an Internet connection to access both the Powerpoint and audio portions of the presentation. They can also ask questions using a real-time email function.”
A Complex Challenge
Mold presents a complex problem for facility executives. Determining where mold is likely to develop means identifying ways moisture can accumulate — whether from excess humidity, a leak in the plumbing system, problems with the ventilation system, or a hole in the roof. If mold is found, knowing how to manage a remediation effort is another challenge. A good remediation effort will address both the removal of mold and the removal of the root cause. The latter is particularly important: If the cause of mold is not determined, it will continue to grow after remediation.
“Mold: An Action Plan For Buildings” will focus on three critical areas:
- Identifying whether and where a facility has mold
- Assuring that the remediation effort is successful
- Preventing mold
The seminar will also brief facility executives on the legal issues associated with mold in buildings.
The cost for attending the live web seminar is $295. A post-seminar CD ROM will be available for $295, and a combination attendance and CD ROM package is $395.
