|<< Back to The International Window Cleaning Association (IWCA)
The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the International Window Cleaning Association (IWCA) continue to recognize the value of maintaining a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. To that end, OSHA and IWCA hereby renew in part the Alliance signed June 10, 2010, with a continued emphasis on immigrant workers, small businesses, and employers with low literacy and limited English speaking workers. Specifically, both organizations are committed to providing IWCA members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers and understand the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act). Through the Alliance, the organizations will continue to address slips, trips, falls from heights and issues related to the proper and safe use of high-reach access equipment, including ladders and scaffolding, in the window cleaning industry. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and IWCA recognize that OSHA's State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.

These Alliances have proved to be valuable tools for both OSHA and its Alliance participants. By entering into an Alliance with a party, OSHA is not endorsing or promoting, nor does it intend to endorse or promote, any of that party's products or services.
