Working on More

So folks, no real blog today. I’m working on some—for example, we have a new petition from an old group to try to get us to put “slipperiness ratings on all floors” and I’ll get into that shortly. There are a 181 pages that I’m trusting Michael to summarize for me. I’m working on material for the Prop65 label changes coming up in August, and of course I’m working on more related to TSCA. (Hint, there will be an article in the next printed version of the mag on “Talking TSCA with your Customers.”) Oh, and I’ll be in California next week for three of the new IWPA Due Care training classes—if you haven’t signed up, I understand there are a few seats left. And I hope to get into SDSs soon as well.

So there’s plenty on the fire, but nothing’s quite fully cooked yet. Sorry there’s nothing to really sink your teeth into today, but hopefully soon!

  1. I work at a museum that has a bamboo hardwood floor in it’s main gallery. I’ve been asked by Facilities Director to research wood floor cleaning machines as an option to clean this floor instead of a microfiber mop as the area is quite extensive and very time consuming. Do you have any recommendations?
