Mold in the Workplace

Mold in the Workplace

Mold and fungus in the workplace can form in many different work environments in Metro Vancouver.

Finding Mold in the Workplace in BC

Possible mold problems include musty odours or individuals reporting mold related symptoms of illness. Identifying contamination can be as simple as seeing moldy material on exposed surfaces or as difficult as finding hidden mold in carpets, behind walls or within ventilation systems. WorkSafeBC (formerly WCB) Section 4.79(1) of the OHS Regulation (“Regulation”) states in part: The employer must ensure that the indoor air quality is investigated when complaints are reported.

Assessing Workplace Mold

ABM Environmental can examine the workplace and quickly determine if mold is present. Musty odours and mold related illness often indicate a much larger problem, so it is imperative to have a qualified mold professional inspect and locate the source of the mold growth and determine if your indoor air quality has been compromised in any way. Thermal imaging equipment can be used to scan the work place for active moisture problems without disruption. This quickly and accurately locates sources of moisture.

Testing Workplace Mold

Air samples can be taken to determine the levels of mold in the air of the workplace. ABM Environmental uses state of the art testing equipment to sample the air. Even hidden mold can be detected in the air sample. We identify the different types of mold and determine the exact quantity of mold in the air.
