July 18, 2006
July 13, 2006-Lincolnwood, IL, USA-ISSA has created a one-of-a-kind Web network dedicated exclusively to the protection of the health and safety of workers in the cleaning industry, the latest step in the association's ongoing alliance with the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

The site, at www.issa.com/osha, offers five topic pages focusing on: Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens; Cleaning Chemicals in the Workplace (Hazard Communication); Injury & Illness Recordkeeping; Personal Protective Equipment (PPE); and Slips, Trips, and Falls in the Workplace.

Each page provides detailed information on regulatory compliance obligations, plus tips and resources for creating and maintaining a safe and healthy environment for employees in that area. Additionally, there are direct links to various compliance resources such as regulatory summaries, white papers, sample programs and plans, frequently-asked-question documents, and checklists.

By working side-by-side with OSHA, ISSA is uniquely positioned to provide crucial safety information to employers in the most efficient and cost-effective manner.
