The Time to Call on MHA-Navigator Accounts is Now!
Dana Killmer recently presented United's Hand Sanitizer flyer (highlighted below) to MHA-Navigator and found they were very much in need of quality hand sanitizers; so much so that they wanted us to put together a co-branded sheet that indicates our hand sanitizers are available on the Navigator Contract to send to their members. With MHA-Navigator-Atlantic Health Partners there are opportunities for you at over 18,000 locations.
As you'll also hear from Eric Frazier through voicemail, we're making a listing of all the MHA-Navigator Long Term Care Members available for you right here for the next 30 days. Be sure to check on the listings that are open in your territory and do not hesitate to make a sales call.

FDA RECALLS EVEN MORE HAND SANITIZERS WITH METHANOL OR 1-PROPANOL
In June the FDA issued warnings over certain hand sanitizers containing methanol. These products containing methanol are extremely dangerous and can be toxic when absorbed through the skin (or ingested). Significant exposure to the chemical can cause nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death, according to the FDA's warning. As of August 12, they are recalling products containing 1-propanol, which can also be toxic and life-threatening when ingested as is acts as a central nervous system depressant.
The initial warning contained about 9 products that had been identified. As of August 12, 2020 their website reflects 149 entries on the list of recalled products. This number is expected to continue to increase.

Check epa product registrations before selling
We know it is confusing enough to keep track of disinfectant product stock at this time; but when you hear about a product coming into stock you must remember to be sure the product is registered for sale in your State before you sell it.
You can always access this information by clicking on the blue "EPA Registrations Lookup" button in the upper, left colum of this page, or...Click here for our EPA Registration Lookup page.
No Return Policy Being Implemented:
United Laboratories remains true to our commitment to insure that our manufacturing facilities are taking steps to insure that our facilities are operating and are being cleaned to provide as much safety to employees and customers as possible in accordance with guidelines from the Center For Disease Control.
We are confident that when our products leave our facilities, no one has touched our products that has COVID-19. The company sick leave policy during the COVID-19 National Emergency helps United in these efforts.
United does not know anything about how our products are handled and who may have touched United products at the delivery location.
During the National Emergency, if United were to receive returned products, the company would not want to reship those products to other customers and therefore the company may be required to discard returned products.
Any products that United has shipped from January 13, 2020 to a point in time when the National Emergency is lifted are not returnable.

Important Considerations for 401(k) Beneficiary Designation
Are you keeping your beneficiary designations updated for your 401(k) retirement funds?
Lincoln Financial group put together a great educational piece that outlines thoughts to keep in mind when designating your beneficiaries; and also highlights when you should be sure to update your beneficiaries.
Do Your Military Bases Use EESOH-MIS?
Our Military uses the EESOH-MIS system to manage risk of exposure to environmental and occupational factors. This system allows them to share information across different functional areas to try to stay in compliance and make sure they are working with the correct data. Not all bases use this system, but if your military customers do, it can be a benefit to you and United as it will allow them to do searches for NSN numbers that have been previously established.
We also have a listing of previously established NSN numbers available through our Sales Tools/Downloads menu. Click here to view that listing.
Conforming with OSHA Regulations
Osha regulations mandate that all employees must be trained on OSHA Hazardous Communication Standards that are now in use. All new hires will need to be trained on this informaton. Training materials and a printed copy of the quiz are included in every start kit. These quizzes must be returned to the Home Office. Also, please take 25 minutes to view this video that will help with your understanding of the regulations.
If you have not yet returned your quiz, please do so as soon as possible. If you need a copy of the quiz or booklet, please contact Debbie Nehmer (x7424 or firstname.lastname@example.org) right away.
