The Research and Education Unit of Cal/OSHA Consultation Services, State of California Department of Industrial Relations, announced the release of a free resource to the Jan/San industry. According to an interview done by Ergonomics Today, "Working Safer and Easier: for Janitors, Custodians, and Housekeepers" was designed to increase awareness of the most common workplace hazards cleaners face on the job. It will also offer tips for reducing injuries and illnesses.

The new publication consists of a series of fact sheets to provide helpful tips for owners, managers, and supervisors to increase productivity in a safe and healthful way. Additional fact sheets are intended for training employees to work in a safe manner by using appropriate equipment and best work practices.

A set of posters is also available. These are designed to increase employee awareness by giving practical suggestions for the safe completion of routinely performed tasks.
