Course Type: Course
Course Length: 3 days
Price: 1195.00

Course Overview and Scope

It is well recognized that exposure to mould growth in buildings can result in adverse health effects. Authorities at all levels require assessment and remediation of potential mould growth, as well as appropriate precautions to protect remediation workers and building occupants. Recent outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease have reminded us all of the need to control this risk in building water systems.

This course provides comprehensive information for building managers, health and safety staff, contractors, and insurance professionals to meet their responsibilities for controlling the risks related to mould and Legionella contamination.

The content and delivery incorporates valuable expertise and extensive field experience. Case studies are reviewed, and the participants will have a chance to interpret real survey and testing results, and plan the remediation of real world situations.  We also include demonstrations of various equipment and mould samples, and encourage class discussion throughout the course.
