Mold and Moisture Assessment Tool - Due to the impact of bioaerosol exposure on teacher and student health, Dr. Michael Hodgson, as a staff member of the UConn Health Division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, and Mr. William A. Turner from Turner Building Science, developed a check sheet approach (Scale) to assess school buildings for mold and moisture. NIOSH refined the approach and completed research supporting the utility of qualitative assessment for mold and moisture. The Center for Indoor Environments and Health has facilitated some NIOSH efforts. The NIOSH Dampness and Mold Assessment Tools (DMAT) is available to help schools improve indoor environment by identifying areas with moisture and mold in classroom and school buildings.
