No Safety Data Sheet! What’s the hold up?
 
As you should already be aware, changes have occurred to OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) that align HCS with the UN Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The changes in the standard effect hazardous chemical classification, label elements and pictograms, standardized Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and employee training. The revised standard not only provides employees the “right to know” but also the “right to understand.”

First Aid Kits- A Requirement or Recommendation? Don’t be Oversold!
 
What do you really need in your first aid kit? Some employers pay vendors to periodically inspect and supply their first aid kits. During their visit, a vendor may be quick to say “OSHA requires…” this, that and the other thing. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) states in 29 CFR 1910.151, “Adequate first aid supplies shall be readily available.” OSHA goes on to reference American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z308.1-1998, "Minimum Requirements for Workplace First-aid Kits," to provide an example of what should be contained in your first aid kit.

Used Car Warranties: What You Don’t Know CAN Hurt You
 
I recently visited two different dealerships where I noticed that all of their used vehicles, other than cars that were covered by manufacturer’s warranties, were being sold “As-Is.” One of the dealers, a high-line establishment, had a number of very expensive pre-owned vehicles being sold without any warranty, including a low-mileage Bentley selling for almost $120,000. Maybe it’s just me, but I figured that a potential buyer might wonder why they would be expected to spend that kind of money with a dealer that didn’t feel it necessary to stand behind their vehicles.

Compliance Facts vs. Fiction
 
I'm often asked to weigh in on compliance questions by F&I managers, Sales Managers and Sales Consultants. Many of these inquiries involve disagreements about the validity of various long-held beliefs surrounding F&I compliance – now and then referred to by some as “Compliance Myths.” So, I decided to take a crack at clarifying some of the compliance issues that apply to these philosophies.

10 Advertising Guidelines That Every Dealer Should Be Familiar With
 
There’s no doubt that the right advertising program can make you plenty of money. But as they say, it’s not how much money you make but how much you get to keep that counts. Auto dealers are a favorite target of regulators hunting for advertising violations and are often blindsided by expensive fines, lawsuits and bad publicity. While the various laws and regulations covering automotive advertising can be confusing, it can be helpful to understand how lawmakers view advertising in general and what triggers their wrath.

Improving your Performance Review Skills
 
Performance reviews are beneficial in a number of ways, allowing you to provide your employees with valuable feedback to help them grow, as well as creating documentation on performance issues. Unfortunately, despite their value, performance reviews are frequently a rote task rather than a productive and engaging process for both the manager and the employee.
