Welcome to IWCA!
The International Window Cleaning Association was formed by a group of window cleaners in the late 80s in an effort to promote safety and education as well as to enhance professionalism throughout the industry.
The IWCA is the Secratariat of the ANSI/IWCA I-14 Window Cleaning Safety Standard which is referenced by building owners and property managers as well as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). In addition, it was designed to also be referenced by professional engineers, architects and manufacturers of window cleaning equipment. The I-14.1 Window Cleaning Safety Standard is the only standard of its type that is specifically for those in the window cleaning industry.
Each year, IWCA holds an annual convention and trade show for professionals working in all facets of the window cleaning industry, from high-rise and route/residential window cleaners to those who manufacture goods and services for window cleaning. Additionally, the association offers four regional safety training sessions per year which gives companies the opportunity to have their employees professionally trained.
Cleaner Windows. Safer Cleaners.
