How a Mold Inspection in Washington, D.C. Benefits Businesses

Currently, there are no Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards for airborne concentrations of mold or mold spores. However, Section 5 of the General Duty Clause of the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act of 1970 states that an employer must provide a workplace "free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees." If you do not comply with this General Duty Clause of the OSH Act, the federal government can issue a citation, and you will have a certain number of days to respond or address the specified hazard. So, if you own a business in Washington, D.C., you’ll want to get a mold inspection from Envirotex Environmental Services.
