Summary as introduced:
Occupational health and safety; mold. Creates a statutory scheme for identification and remediation of mold in occupational buildings, similar to the current statutory scheme for asbestos remediation. The Safety and Health Codes Board is charged with developing regulations that determine a permissible exposure to mold that does not violate the safety and health of employees, and ensure the proper remediation of mold in occupational buildings. The Commissioner of Labor and Industry is authorized to receive complaints about mold, conduct inspections of buildings, investigate any complaints, hold hearings or institute legal proceedings to enforce the regulations. Building owners in violation of Board regulations may be guilty of a misdemeanor, charged with a fine of up to $1,000 per violation, and subject to a civil penalty of up to $25,000 per violation.
