Mold Exposure

As part of its hurricane and flood response efforts, the NIEHS Worker Training Program (WTP) developed a Mold Cleanup and Treatment orientation for workers, volunteers, and homeowners who engage in small-scale mold cleanup and treatment of flooded or water-damaged homes. Several WTP awardees also offer mold awareness and mold remediation training, and NIEHS has developed mold remediation guidance that is available in both English and Spanish. These resources are found below, along with additional health and safety resources for workers who may be exposed to mold during remediation/cleanup work or emergency response activities.

Training Resources

The National Clearinghouse creates training tools to aid in the development of awareness-level courses or other awareness-level materials. These tools provide health and safety guidance to those involved in disaster response and cleanup activities. Companion booklets are pocket guides that can be distributed with the training and used as a resource when workers are on a disaster site. To order hard copies of these booklets, please complete the Booklet Order Form.
