AIHA® has issued a new guidance document, “Assessment and Remediation of Corrosive Drywall,” which provides a more comprehensive approach to the assessment of structures with respect to corrosive drywall. The document explains how to safely execute corrective measures to restore air quality in affected structures and provides recommendations for protecting workers from hazards during the removal process and setting up controls to eliminate dust and odors from the drywall.
This document was developed by the AIHA Construction Committee and the AIHA Indoor Environmental Quality Committee. For further background information on corrosive drywall, see AIHA’s “White Paper on Corrosive Drywall.”
