The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) announced the publication of the brand-new Safety and Health Field Guide for Professional Cleaners (First Edition, 2022). 

The Field Guide supplements the existing ANSI/IICRC Cleaning Standards and Certification Courses containing valuable information that Cleaning Professionals should employ: 

• Safety and Health Hazard Identification Procedures 

• Safe Work Practices 

• Control Methods 

Lee Senter, Field Guide Committee chair says, “This new Field Guide walks the reader through the processes of identifying and controlling hazards. It discusses the mandatory plans required of a company by OSHA.” 

This Field Guide defines safe work practices and outlines the criteria of required safety plans that shall be used by cleaning companies and their personnel. The Guide identifies specific ideas on hazard identification and controls that should be used in establishing work plans and procedures. 

“This Field Guide is sorely needed in our industry,” says Ryan Tasovac, Field Guide Committee vice-chair. “The Field Guide for the Health and Safety of
Professional Cleaners allows for all cleaning organizations, big and small, to ensure that the health and safety needs of their workforce are met.”
