Why Attend?

Building owners have known for some time that water damage that leads to mould growth is an environmental liability needing immediate attention. Recent outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease have reminded us of the need to control this risk as well.

This seminar will prepare those responsible for managing buildings with the information for controlling the risk of mould and Legionella contamination. 

Who Should Attend?

It is designed to meet the needs of:

  • Property managers
  • Human resources and health and safety staff, and JHSC members
  • Insurance professionals and other risk managers
  • Abatement and restoration contractors

Course Outline:

  • Introduction to mould biology and growth in buildings
  • Health effects of exposure to mould in buildings
  • Regulations and guidelines for assessment and control
  • Due diligence in responding to water damage or mould growth
  • Legionella risk identification and control
  • Managing buildings to prevent future mould growth (Mould Management Program)
  • Procedures for inspection, testing and assessment of mould  and bacterial contamination
  • Mould abatement procedures, small to large scale

Format and Methodology:

This is a three-day seminar. The course material is based on extensive field experience, and presents several case studies.

The attendees will have a chance to interpret real survey and testing results, and plan the remediation of actual real world situations. The course manual is an extensive reference and includes several of the most important standards and guidelines.  

This seminar is also available for on-site presentation, either in the two-day format or in a condensed version to fit specific needs.
