Lincolnwood. IL - Recognizing the important role that proper floor maintenance plays in maximizing safety, ISSA and ASTM International have come together to co-sponsor a full day program on “The Technology of Floor Maintenance and Current Trends” on Monday, Oct. 14, at the Las Vegas Convention Center immediately before the ISSA Convention, which is scheduled for October 15-18 at the same location.

This program is designed to provide an open environment where all aspects of current and future floor maintenance technologies can be discussed. This symposium promises to address topics critical to proper floor maintenance including:

  • The impact of floor traffic on floor maintenance procedures
  • An overview of floor finish technology in laymen's terms
  • The important role of soil prevention and removal
  • Proper floor maintenance for different environments
  • Slip and fall incidents: prevention and liability
  • Slip resistance and portable slip testers

    This program is directed at a non-technical audience comprised of building maintenance employees, executive housekeepers, specialty chemical sales professionals and individuals associated with manufacturing.

    Attendees must register separately for this program. For more information, contact Tracy Novak, ISSA, 800-225-4772 or email
