OSHA Renews Alliance with International Window Cleaning Association

Together they have developed resources for the window cleaning industry, and IWCA has supported OSHA outreach campaigns such as the National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction, Safe + Sound Campaign, and the Heat Illness Prevention Campaign, while also providing training to its members on the new requirements for OSHA’s Walking-Working Surfaces and Personal Fall Protection Systems standard.

OSHA has renewed its alliance with the International Window Cleaning Association to continue providing training and resources to protect the safety and health of workers in the window cleaning industry. During the added five-year agreement, OSHA and IWCA will work together to address hazards such as falls from heights and slips, trips, and falls, and they will focus on the safe use of high-reach access equipment, including rope descent systems, ladders, and scaffolding.

"Falls are among the most common hazards encountered by professional window cleaners," said Loren Sweatt, deputy assistant secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health. "We value IWCA's expertise and look forward to our continued alliance to ensure workers receive information and training to keep them safe on the job."

The alliance was originally signed in 2010 and already was renewed in 2012. Together they have developed resources for the window cleaning industry, and IWCA has supported OSHA outreach campaigns such as the National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction, Safe + Sound Campaign, and the Heat Illness Prevention Campaign, while also providing training to its members on the new requirements for OSHA’s Walking-Working Surfaces and Personal Fall Protection Systems standard.
