NEW PROGRAM: EARN POINTS WITH THE AMERICAN EXPRESS CORPORATE CARD! 

We are pleased to announce that your association has added a new referral program with the Commercial Card division of American Express.  You have the ability to earn reward points on all business purchases and obtain cash rebates, travel awards, dining, gift cards, and hundreds of other options.  Colorado dealers using the American Express corporate card to pay for business expenses receive the following benefits (note the Corporate card is different than the Small Business card, and has several advantages):  

  • Corporate liability = no personal guarantee
  • Membership rewards program (1-2% reward incentive)
  • Extend your cash float by 30-60 days
  • Additional cash back with select partners (3%-15% cash incentive)
  • FedEx 5% cash rebate = $2,000 max rebate per year
  • Dedicated business partner for easy setup and management
  • No loss of existing points when converting from the “Business” card

$50,000 in dealership spending = $500 in rewards!

Rewards can be redeemed for anyone: customers, business purchases, employees, family, owners — your choice.  Visit www.membershiprewards.com to explore the various reward options.

OSHA'S TOP 10 MOST CITED VIOLATIONS BY DEALERS AND SERVICE CENTERS, 2012

KPA announces the annual top ten OSHA citations for dealerships and service centers. This list is the most straightforward information about OSHA citations available for automotive retail.

Managers need fast, straightforward answers to their compliance concerns. To meet this need, KPA developed the Top 10 OSHA Citations for Dealerships and Service Centers by combining OSHA’s annual Most Frequently Cited Regulations for Dealerships, and OSHA’s annual Most Frequently Cited Regulations for Repair Shops. KPA pin-pointed specific machinery and processes at facilities that were frequently cited, and developed the Top 10 OSHA Citations for Dealerships and Service Centers. The list:

1. Hazard Communication
2. Respiratory Protection
3. Unguarded Machinery (Parts Grinder)
4. Electrical Safety Requirements
5. Powered Industrial Trucks
6. Exit Routes and Emergency Action Plans
7. Portable Fire Extinguishers
8. Spray finishing using flammable liquids (especially at collision centers)
9. General Duty Clause
10. Improperly Maintained Emergency Eyewash Stations

Having an accurate list gives managers the big picture of what needs to be done to keep their business in compliance with OSHA’s most frequently cited regulations.

“KPA’s Top 10 OSHA Citations for Dealerships and Service Centers is a great place to start if you are taking a pragmatic approach to safety compliance, because it puts the riskiest issues first,” explains, “and KPA is here to help to keep dealerships and service centers stay compliant.”

~Eric Schmitz, Vice President of Products and Development
