HAZARD COMMUNICATION. When mold growth requiring large-
scale remediation is found, the building owner, management, and/or employer
must notify occupants in the affected area(s) of its presence. Notification should
include a description of the remedial measures to be taken and a timetable for
completion.
While normal small-scale response actions do not dictate "whole
building" notifications, coordinate response activities with the supervisors of the
affected areas. Supervisors are then responsible for notifying affected personnel
and providing a description of remedial measures to be taken and the schedule
for completion.
Well-planned group meetings held before and after remediation
with full disclosure of plans and results can be an effective communication
mechanism. Servicing Safety and Health professionals, Industrial Hygienists
and/or Occupational Health providers may provide valuable assistance during
these meetings.
Advise occupants of any known or suspected health risks.
Temporarily relocate individuals that may be at a high risk for experiencing
adverse reactions to mold, (see paragraph 1-6.1.1) during remediation activities.
