E-Invoicing makes your life easier. It takes you from manual and paper-based processes to a simple, automated, secure and modern way of doing business.
E-invoices enable considerable cost savings. Running after, opening, handling and filing manual invoices is a drag, and not very efficient to boot.
We don't mind mentioning, we have tens of thousands of dollars tied up in invoicing and sending statements to customers, and rates just keep skyrocketing. We have to put those costs into our prices of course, so when you select e-invoicing, you're saving on your end right now in labor, and eventually from us in your costs.
So, we're asking you to consider our faster, more certain, less costly, more automated method of invoicing you! You can have your invoices emailed to you as a .pdf file or even faxed. It's super easy to start, takes about a half minute, and all you have to do to get started is click here.
OSHA's new Globally Harmonized System is an effort to make more uniform warning labels and safety sheets throughout the world. With economies everywhere intricately linked, shipments of chemicals need to be labeled in ways that protect the health of workers everywhere.
Pictograms are an important part of that warning system. Janitorial, custodial and facility maintenance departments, as well as anyone handling shipments of chemistry, need to be trained in the revised system by December 1st, 2013. To facilitate that, PUR-O-ZONE and Pro-Link have created a set of training materials you can use, including a detailed PowerPoint presentation complete with speaker talking points.
The OSHA GHS (Globally Harmonized System) ruling of 2012 requires manufacturers to label chemistry following certain formats. These formats have changed somewhat in comparison with original Hazcom (Hazard Communication Standard) requirements. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) have become Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and have a 16-section design.
Here is a sample illustration of the basic format and a description of the seven basic elements that make up the GHS label.
Seems as if every few months there is another “germiest places” list. The lists are popular, and often capture a few minutes on the morning news. But what is the real importance of this germ information?
Set Friday November 8th aside for a partial-day of education about and demonstration of Advance equipment. The REV orbital scrubbing system and a host of new equipment items will be center stage.
Location: Quail Run School, Lawrence, KS
Schedule: 8:30 a.m. check-in, 9:00 a.m. to Noon presentations, 12:00 a light lunch you can have there or "take-n-run."
Jason Stearns, Advance factory specialist from St. Louis, will be teaching about the many technology breakthroughs in recent years, along with PUR-O-ZONE floor care expert, Mike Lane. New concepts such as orbital scrubbing, mechanical stripping, stand-up floor care automation and fast finishing chemistry will also be both described and demonstrated. You will have a chance to test drive equipment, floors will be refinished and real time saving techniques will be explained.
Admission is free. However, please register here.
This is an opportunity to see advances and equipment in one place and at one time that would be hard to do otherwise. You should be there.
Are you ready for fall and winter? Really ready? A little prevention could save you a bundle.
