Many industrial and construction sites have the potential to expose their staff to harmful dust or vapors and gases. Also many sites contain dangerous dust, vapor, gases and mold. From 1986, OSHA has insisted that the air is tested for Asbestos, both during removal and containment and after the completion of the project. OSHA requires the employer to make an initial determination of whether the action level of lead is exceeded for any employee. This initial determination must include monitoring of the air for the presence of lead and must cover the exposure of a representative number of employees who are reasonably believed to be exposed to the highest lead levels.
Taking air samples during a mold inspection is important for several reasons. Mold spores are not visible to the naked eye, and the types of mold present can often be determined through laboratory analysis of the air samples. Having samples analyzed can also help provide evidence of the scope and severity of a mold problem, as well as aid in assessing human exposure to mold spores. After remediation, new samples are typically taken to help ensure that all mold has been successfully removed.
