New Adventures in Mold
August 28, 2020
2:00–3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time



An ancient agent, mold has caused untold damage to materials and threatened the health of people to varying degrees. Over the past 30 years, the science and policy on mold have developed substantially to manage this stressor. Over just the last year or so, some new guidance has emerged regarding spore trap analysis, mold investigations in schools, and mold management in general. This comes in the form of: AIHA’s FAQs About Spore Trap Air Sampling for Mold for Direct Microscopical Examination, IAQA’s Standard for the Assessment of Educational Facilities for Moisture Affected Areas and Fungal Contamination, and the newly revised AIHA book on Recognition, Evaluation, and Control of Indoor Mold (or “the Green Book”). Come see what’s new.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this webinar, attendees will:

  • Understand the limitations of Spore Trap sampling

What is an ACGIH® Webinar?

ACGIH® is dedicated to providing quality, scientific, educational events. One method of doing this is to offer distance-learning webinars. A webinar, short for Web-based seminar, is a presentation, lecture, or seminar that is transmitted over the Internet. A key feature of a webinar is its interactive elements — the ability to give, receive and discuss information. Webinars are as effective as on-site presentations without the travel expense. This ACGIH® webinar is 1.0 hours in duration and consists of a live presentation given via the Internet with no option for call in audio.
