OSHA Launches New Cleaning Industry Topics Page

OSHA's latest Safety and Health Topics page, "OSHA Assistance for the Cleaning Industry," provides information on potential hazards, such as slips, trips, and falls, OSHA standards, and links to free resources from OSHA and other organizations.

"OSHA is the leading resource on safety and health issues for employers and employees in all industries," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke, Jr. "This new Safety and Health Topics page is another example of OSHA’s commitment to assist employees with identifying and preventing workplace hazards in the cleaning industry."

Developed with input from ISSA, a cleaning industry trade association, the page--available at www.osha.gov/dcsp/products/topics/cleaningindustry/index.html--features information from OSHA and other organizations on the types of hazards common in the cleaning and maintenance industry.

In addition, the page features links to standards frequently cited by OSHA in this industry, such as bloodborne pathogens, asbestos, and hazard communication.
