FAU to teach classes on Chinese drywall removal

In brief, from the Palm Beach Post:

Florida Atlantic University’s School of Architecture plans to begin offering training classes for workers and supervisors who are going to be removing Chinese drywall from homes.

According to a flyer by the school, two courses – a one-day worker safety awareness class, and a supplemental two-day supervisor and worker safety awareness training – are currently being developed.

They are expected to be scheduled at FAU campuses in Fort Lauderdale, Jupiter and Port St. Lucie starting in mid-October.

The tainted wallboard is believed to be in hundreds of South Florida homes. The issue of removal has garnered attention because some Chinese drywall gives off a sulfuric odor linked to corrosion of metal components in homes. In addition, a growing number of homeowners have blamed it for health problems.
