New for 2021 - United 616 CREW BUDDY PAK
The BLINK BUDDY PAK was a hit in 2020; proving to us that our customers love the combination of having a pre-moistened cleaning wipe, paired with a drying wipe. So for 2021 we're starting the year off with the new CREW BUDDY PAK Universal Cleaner Degreaser. When it comes to breaking through the tough binds of grease and grime, CREW will get the job done quickly. Check out our product video below.

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.

COVID-19 Information from Human Resources
Director of Human Resources, Julie Remington, has been working to keep us up-to-date on benefit information. Shared through e-mail on April 2nd and thru the image link below we have information on "Coping with COVID-19"; a document put together in coordination with BlueCross BlueShield that provides insights and links to other resources of information.
Next, is a poster outlining employee rights under the new Families First Coronavirus Response Act. Click on the image below to about paid leave entitlements and qualifications related to COVID-19.
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.
