A new bulletin from OSHA gives recommendations on how to prevent mold growth and how to protect workers exposed to mold and in mold remediation jobs. The bulletin is aimed at building managers, custodians and others who handle building maintenance.

Molds are found almost everywhere and can grow on just about any substance as long as moisture and oxygen are present. Some molds can cause adverse health effects, including asthma attacks, in some people who are allergic to mold. Other allergic reactions include hay fever-type symptoms, skin rashes, and irritation of eyes, nose, throat and lungs in both mold-allergic and non-allergic people, according to OSHA.
