Abstract
In November 1997, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a management request from the Steven Brouillard Construction Company (SBCC) for a health hazard evaluation (HHE) at the Ronald McDonald House (RMDH) in Durham, North Carolina. The HHE requesters expressed concern over employees' reports of adverse health effects (diarrhea, stomach cramps, vomiting, dizziness, weakness, and fatigue), which the SBCC employees attributed to exposures to fungi and their toxins while performing renovations on contaminated building materials at the RMDH. In response, NIOSH investigators conducted an initial site visit at the RMDH on November 12-13, 1997, and returned to conduct microbial sampling on November 24-25, 1997.
