The Building Service Contractors Association International (BSCAI) represents the leading cleaning contractors across North America and internationally. This alliance gives ISSA members access to BSCAI’s more than 1,800 members, as well as member pricing on BSCAI’s many educational tools and events. Since 2010, the association has co-located its annual convention with ISSA Show North America, bringing the top BSCs together with ISSA members during the same week.
BSCAI’s CBSE and RBSM certifications signify that an individual has demonstrated the knowledge and skills required to perform competently in the building services profession. These designations also help contractors achieve elements of the ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and Certification Program.

The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) represents 19,500 facility management decision-makers from a cross-section of facility types in private, public, and government sectors across the globe. The association strongly supports the ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and works with ISSA to generate increased awareness of the importance cleaning plays in the facility management arena.
ISSA and IFMA work together to offer member pricing on select products or programs of interest to both constituencies. ISSA also recently worked with the IFMA Foundation to create the publications The Business of Green Cleaning and The Sustainability Guide to Green Cleaning.

NIOSH Total Worker Health Affiliate Program
Total Worker Health® is defined as policies, programs, and practices that integrate protection from work-related safety and health hazards with promotion of injury and illness prevention efforts to advance worker well-being. The NIOSH Total Worker Health approach advocates for a holistic understanding of the factors that contribute to worker well-being. Scientific evidence now supports what many safety and health professionals, as well as workers themselves, have long suspected—that risk factors in the workplace can contribute to health problems previously considered unrelated to work.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), a part of the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC), is the U.S. federal agency that conducts research and makes recommendations to prevent worker injury and illness. ISSA’s participation in the NIOSH’s TWH program will help promote the value of clean in regard to worker safety, health, and productivity including cleaning for infection prevention and the prevention of slips, trips, and falls.
