For approximately 2.5 million workers in the U.S., cleaning is a dangerous profession.
January 4, 2014
Although the industry is deeply involved at the moment in discussions about “cleaning for health,” these conversations tend to address the needs of everyone except the cleaning workers actually performing these tasks.
In the grand scheme of history, cleaning and maintenance tasks are still in their infancy; just 100 years ago, the safe removal of dirt from a building required manual sweepers and impractical machines that sometimes needed gas or oil.
Today, cleaning equipment suppliers offer different products and technologies that allow cleaning professionals to achieve these goals, ranging from reduced or chemical-free cleaning to cleaning path extension and multi-purpose cleaning machines.
In August 2013, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is scheduled to release new rules for Walking and Working Surfaces (29 CFR Part 1910), that raise the bar for floorcare, safety and inspection.
