Molds and fungus can cause substantial problems for any type of structure in relation to environmental health and safety, whether it is an office building, apartment complex, or suburban household. Mold and fungus expert witnesses are often certified industrial hygienists and they are experienced on how to prevent environmental contamination from molds and fungus.
Molds and fungus expert witnesses are knowledgeable in the various situations that create such conditions, including water intrusion, water contamination, indoor air quality, bacteria in water, flooding, and other issues related to problems with water and air within indoor settings, as these elements may lead to the development of molds and fungus. Industrial hygiene is very important in preventing molds and fungus from developing in workplace settings, as certain fields are particularly susceptible to issues with indoor air quality and water intrusion because of the types of equipment and machinery involved. Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) is implemented to maintain safe and healthy working conditions for employees, which includes keeping areas clear of molds and fungus.
The agricultural field must also take preventive measures against molds and fungus, since crops are exposed to environmental elements. Molds and fungus expert witnesses are also often experienced with construction, as construction defects may lead to water intrusion and the need for building remodeling to prevent mold from forming indoors. Environmental health and safety should be considered during the process of design engineering as a means of promoting healthy indoor air quality.
