Lottery Workers Sickened by Mold

I  read this article yesterday on the Aspergillus Website Blog.  I became infuriated at how lottery workers were sent into a warehouse to verify lottery tickets six months after they were flooded during Superstorm Sandy.  The workers were given suits, gloves and masks.  They were not given respirators because they felt the workers wouldn’t be able to safely operate them without training!  The result of this negligence was headaches and respiratory problems.  And as many mold victims will say, this may only be the beginning of their problems.

In my opinion as a mold survivor, what difference would a day or two (if necessary) of training for these workers have made?  So what if the tickets weren’t verified for a few more days?  It had already been six months.  I would love to hear what you have to say after reading this article.
