Hurricane Sandy has highlighted the dangerous health problems mold poses for workers.  While these health issues have been documented, there are no OSHA or EPA regulations on mold.  What do we need to know about the health consequences of exposure to mold?  
 
Absent specific regulations, what can workers do to safely remediate mold?
What are the strategies to force government oversight?  
 
This forum will  address  these among other issues concerning mold.
