Day Cleaning for Cost Sustainability?

Day cleaning improves occupant health and satisfaction as well as increases financial sustainability. Light cleaning like area cleaning and restroom cleaning can be done during the day shift with deep cleaning being scheduled around occupants for convenience and safety. A CIMS-certified cleaning service provider has the management experience to provide efficient day cleaning programs.

Facilities Specialist, Steve Spencer, speaks about how day time cleaning saves State Farm up to $50,000 in cleaning costs and as much as $400,000 in energy savings. Watch Video – http://www.issa.com/?m=video&id=493#videoid=492

Training for new GHS with OSHA

CSG started the GHS training of janitorial staff in September for compliance with OSHA’s Dec. 1, 2013 deadline.  OSHA3491QuickCardPictogram_Page_1

OSHA required that companies storing, using or handling chemicals must train workers to understand the new data sheets and labels of the Hazard Communication Global Harmonized System (GHS). As with all OSHA Training Standards employers are required to provide training in an understandable language and method.

While OSHA has established a generous changeover period, OSHA hopes that as manufacturers change their labels, workers will already be trained.

Be sure that OSHA will be verifying compliance, but they are still offering the GHS Training Resources available at the OSHA Training Service’s website (http://www.oshatraining.com/ghs-training-resources.php).

Upcoming Deadlines:

  • June 1, 2015: Chemical manufacturers, importers, distributors and employers must comply with all other requirements of the revised standard.
  • Dec. 1, 2015: Distributors may not ship containers unless they contain approved labels.
  • June 1, 2016: Employers must update workplace labeling and their hazard communication programs as necessary, including additional employee training for newly identified chemical hazards.
