Arlington, VA — The International Safety Equipment Association has launched an online portal to solicit ideas for workplace consensus standards.

“Through the new Safety Standards Idea Portal, ISEA will identify and review new concepts, emerging trends, and gaps in the occupational safety and health industry,” a press release states.

“Innovation is essential to ensure we’re meeting our commitment to keeping workers safe through the use of PPE and safety equipment,” ISEA President and CEO Cam Mackey said in the release. “By gathering ideas for new standards, we can identify unmet needs in the market, ultimately helping to transform safety practices in the workplace.

“This new standards proposal process aims to streamline and modernize standards development, promote inclusivity, and drive continuous improvement in safety protocols.”

Submissions won’t include identifiable information – personal or organizational. ISEA volunteer leaders and workplace safety and health experts will evaluate proposals on a rolling basis.

ISEA has scheduled a webinar for noon Eastern on Feb. 28 to detail the submission process, guidelines and form.
