WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued a new compliance directive for enforcing the bloodborne pathogens standard. The compliance directive guides OSHA's safety and health inspection officers in enforcing the standard that covers occupational exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials and ensures consistent inspection procedures are followed.
With The Clean Show in Las Vegas approaching, it’s important to know that every laundry business executive, and owners and employees of laundry businesses can legitimately claim a income tax deduction for the expenses paid or incurred in attending trade shows, conventions and meetings – if you follow the rules.
OSHA today launched an extensive outreach effort to assist the 1.4 million employers required to meet the updated injury and illness recordkeeping rule, which takes effect Jan. 1, 2002.
"The new rule is more flexible and simpler to follow and represents a change from requirements that had been in place for 30 years. In our outreach efforts, we want to do everything we can to help employers and workersmake the transition to the improved recordkeeping system" said OSHA Administrator John L. Henshaw.
Why would any commercial laundry business owner or manager ignore perfectly good, legitimate tax deductions? Our complex tax rules and an Internal Revenue Service consistently on the lookout for missed income and exaggerated deductions paint a one-sided picture of our tax laws.
