Floor cleaning, stripping, buffing and waxing Bartlett IL

Alpha Cleaning Company provides commercial cleaning services to the buildings located in Bartlett, Lake Zurich, Northbrook, Elmhurst and nearby areas. In this video we show how we strip and wax vinyl tiles.
Our stripping and waxing process begins with preparing the area. We or the customer move all items that are in our way and dust mop the floor. After that we apply stripping solution to the floor and let it sit for some time. Then one person strips off old finish with the help of floor buffer while another person cleans edges and baseboards with baseboard stripper, baseboard pads and scrapers.
After that we pick up dirty solution with a wet vac. Then we neutralize the floor and prepare it for waxing.
Finally we apply 4-6 coats of commercial floor wax and dry it with air fans.

Globally Harmonized System (GHS) Training Video -- GHS Intro & Changes to OSHA HazCom Standard

You may show this video on Youtube to students, employees and co-workers in order to provide them with the required introduction to the GHS and to train them on the changes that are being made to the HazCom Standard.

OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is now aligned with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).

The GHS is a system for standardizing and harmonizing the classification and labelling of chemicals. It is a logical and comprehensive approach to:
◾Defining health, physical and environmental hazards of chemicals;
◾Creating classification processes that use available data on chemicals for comparison with the defined hazard criteria; and
◾Communicating hazard information, as well as protective measures, on labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS).

The GHS covers all hazardous chemicals. There are no complete exemptions from the scope of the GHS for a particular type of chemical or product. The term "chemical" is used broadly to include substances, products, mixtures, preparations, or any other terms that may be used by existing systems. The goal of the GHS is to identify the intrinsic hazards of chemical substances and mixtures and to convey hazard information about these hazards. The GHS is not intended to harmonize risk assessment procedures or risk management decisions, as described above.
