ASC (formerly known as ANSI/IWCA) I-14

Safety in the workplace is a shared responsibility.

The ANSI/IWCA I-14 is an American Standard published in 2001. The intent of the I-14 Standard is to improve the level of safety in the window cleaning industry. The 1-14 Standard provides safety guidelines that benefit building owners, managers, and contractors. By following the voluntary I-14 Standard, both lives and assets are protected.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration references the I-14 Standard in violations by window cleaning contractors of the OSHA Section 5(a) 1- General Duty Clause. In these citations, OSHA states that the violations could have been remedied if the contractor were following the requirements of the I-14 Standard.

Save lives, protect assets, and avoid citations.

The citations covered a wide range of violations such as contractors needing to upgrade their equipment, improve safety training, providing a work plan, and working with the building owner or manager to assess the safety of the facility.

In a more significant case study, the I-14 Standard helped to eliminate the liability of a property manager after an accident occurred.
