California Pushes to Label Monsanto’s Roundup as a Carcinogen
We’ve previously discussed how many overseas countries have placed complete or partial bans on the use of Monsanto’s Roundup product. In 2015, California’s EPA indicated they would move to have the key ingredient, glyphosate, to be included under Proposition 65 as being probably carcinogenic to humans. Monsanto pushed back in the court system, but once again the EPA is moving forward with their plans.

New Sure-Flo Training Videos
Since we introduced the SureFlo Dosing System for use with our dialysis products in 2015, they have brought great success in selling to that market becoming the system of choice for dosing dialysis drains. Recently a couple of issues have been raised, questioning why a dosing system may not be feeding properly and we’ve created a couple of videos to help assure you have the systems set up to run correctly.
First, air may be getting in the line and it is a simple fix, using a Herbie Clip. This clip will now be included with every SureFlo Dosing System as it ships. We are also sending Herbie Clips to all reps who have the systems installed so they can be added.
Next, always prime the pump when initially installing and changing out product:

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 New OSHA Regulations
New regulations mandate that all employees must be trained on new OSHA Hazardous Communication Standards that are being phased into use. All new hires will need to be trained and we still have a number of quizzes outstanding. 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 a video that will help with your understanding of the changes.
If you have not yet returned your quizz, please do so as soon as possible. If you need a copy of the quiz or booklet, please contact Debbie Nehmer (x7424 or email@example.com) right away.
