More and more workplaces are involved in investigating or removing mould contamination from buildings. As a result, there’s an increasing demand for information on moulds, including:

  • Where they are found.
  • Why they are of concern.
  • How they can be prevented.
  • What health effects they may cause.
  • How they can be identified.
  • How they can be removed.

To assist workplaces with this issue, the Occupational Health and Safety Council of Ontario has developed an in depth information guide to mould recognition, assessment and control.

Furthermore, depending on the type of material and extent of contamination, various actions will need to be taken in order to contain the mould.
