It's not true. Test's came back and it wasn't what virus they thought.

We have always stressed gloves, respirators, body suits, etc, with new guys when going into properties. Some of them shrug it off like they are invincible. We have seen staph infections, lung ailments, lice, fleas, rat bites, etc. It really is not worth the money.

Forget the trashouts. I don't even want to change a light bulb in a house like that!

Which brings up a hypothetical situation, guy goes into a house with A. mold B. mice/animal feces C. ?? and gets sick from one of the above, and wasn't wearing PPE(maybe it was encouraged/required, maybe it wasn't).

Would workers comp cover something like that? I would assume so, but thought I'd ask for you more expert insurance guys out there.

They'd have to if they're covered under it I believe but you could possibly charged with negligence in sending them in. I'm not a pro but Fremont might be able to help.

Its covered if proper OSHA guidelines are followed. MOLD maybe but it may be a fight since if you aren't rated for hazmat on the work comp policy and your on a job site they may say the property owner is liable and if you signed a "waiver of subrogation" (which most P&P Service Company contracts include) then you would probably be S.O.L.

Mice/Animal may be a little different since unlike mold its not "in the air naturally". I know a Nebraska guy that was hospitalized for nearly 6 months in oxygen tents and ICU/Sterile Rooms and Work Comp did not pay.

Basically a crap shoot unless you are rated for that type of work.
