IAQ Radio: Talking Dirty with Patrick Moffett

IAQ Radio: Talking Dirty with Patrick Moffett

Talking Dirty with Patrick Moffett…reflections on lessons learned and a near-death experience.

For over 35 years, Patrick Moffett has been an environmental and industrial hygienist, general contractor, technical writer, lecturer and instructor specializing in the assessment and oversight of property remediation and the environmental clearance of property losses, His vast loss experience includes residential, commercial, institutional and complicated losses involving communities where he coordinated cleanup with government agencies.

After nearly succumbing to a work-related bacterial infection, Patrick courageously decided to share his experience and recommendations with the industry.

Patrick previously joined us 11 years ago on IAQRadio episode 126.

Nuggets mined from today’s episode:

We want to first cover some highlights from the first interview

  1. Prior to entering the cleaning and disaster restoration field what was your experience in infection control and epidemiology?
    1. In the 1970’s I was one of the earliest EMT’s, then paramedic, and then shifted to work part-time in a hospital as an infection control practitioner (ICP), where I have been a member of APIC, the Association for Infection Control Practitioners for the last 40 years.
      1. How my past experience and credentials play into today's work; when a hospital, health care, or a treatment center experiences an environmental issue, I speak JCAHO, HIPAA, and hospital infection control language, which allows the restorer to be inline with codes and regulations, allowing them to complete their work with the least of disruption.
