Mould Remediation Training for Hawkins' Investigators

Eight investigators from our Civil Engineering, Contamination and Materials teams recently completed the “Professional Mould Remediation: Assessment & Remediation for Technicians (City & Guilds Accreditation)” course at our Reigate office. The course covered the assessment, mitigation and remediation of mould contaminated buildings.

The two-day course, delivered by Dewpoint Professional, included fungal ecology and biology, health and safety considerations, and best practice in inspection, reporting, mitigation and remediation. The course is accredited with the City & Guilds of London Institute, and is another example of Hawkins investigators’ commitment to their continuing professional development.

Indoor mould growth is often linked with health issues for building occupants and damage to the building’s contents and fabric. In the course of our investigations of leaks, floods and basement water ingress at Hawkins, we sometimes have to look into claims of mould contamination. We find that having a good knowledge of how mould problems can develop and how they should be resolved can be an invaluable extra skill to add to our investigators’ core specialisms.

Hawkins HR Director Andrew Prickett said, "At Hawkins we actively manage both in-house training and structured formal learning provided by external agencies as part of a program of continued professional development (CPD) to ensure our the skills, experience and competency of our investigators is current and suitable to meet the demands of the wide variety of types of forensic investigations undertaken."
