In the best of times at CUNY, mold contamination of old leaky buildings is an ongoing problem. Moreover, the hazard posed by mold has dramatically “grown” since Hurricane Sandy and will continue to challenge us through the coming damp, cold winter.
If you missed the Environmental Health and Safety Watchdogs’ useful and informative workshop on “Mold in the Workplace,” given by Dave Newman of New York Committee for Occupational Safety & Health (NYCOSH), you can schedule the workshop for your campus. Just let the Watchdogs know and they can work with you to set one up.
While the mold workshop focuses on the workplace, it will also be useful if you or others you know are facing mold problems during the Sandy cleanup.
To schedule a workshop, e-mail the PSC Environmental Health and Safety Watchdogs, or call 212-354-1252.
