We are here for YOU!

We have reached the end of our fiscal year here at the NWA HBA, and what a great year it has been. The Home Show, Parade of Homes, and Golf Tournament have all been hugely successful for one reason… YOU! That is why this newsletter is dedicated to the Members of the Northwest Arkansas Home Builders Association.  

We appreciate the hours you put in and know it is because you believe in the Association. Remember to let us be here for you as well. Let us know what we can do to help make your business successful. Think of us as an extension of your company “Marketing, Education, and Support Department”
The 2015 Home Show is in full gear. If you have not reserved your booth for the show, now is the time to move on that. We have limited space and as of November 3rd it is open to the public.

Thanks for a great year, truly we could not do it without you,
Brenda & Sarah

Thank You!

oshaOSHA Announces New Reporting Requirements

On Thursday, the federal Occupational Safety and and Health Administration announced a final rule that requires employers to notify the agency-within 24 hours-whenever an employee has an occupational-related in-patient hospital stay, amputation, or loss of an eye.
The rule goes into effect Jan. 1, 2015, and applies to all employers-even those with fewer than 10 employees.
Previously, OHSA’s regulations required an employer to report only work-related fatalities, and in-patient hospitalizations of three or more employees. Reporting single hospitalizations, amputations or loss of an eye was not required under the previous rule.
To make these requirements a little less burdensome, OSHA is developing a website for employers to report incidents electronically, in addition to the phone reporting options.
You can also use NAHB’s Recordkeping Toolkit to learn more about the revised regulation and what you need to do to stay in compliance. 

scamPhone Scam Alert!

Please be aware that we do not pass along your phone numbers or email addresses to any telemarketers. Some of you have received calls from a metal building company stating they received your information from us. I assure you they did not.

Whether or not these calls are legitimate or not we do not know.
