PUBLIC FORUM

The public will soon be able to see what injuries occurred at your business. Starting in 2017, The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will take the information it already collects from employers and post it online. OSHA recently released a final rule, which becomes effective on January 1, 2017, that requires employers to electronically submit information on workplace injuries. This information will be posted on the department’s website, www.osha.gov.

FLIP THE SCRIPT

Thirty percent growth for a company for one year is pretty good. Thirty percent growth year-after-year is outstanding. When George Trunyan started his auto recycling facility, Benzeen Auto Parts (formerly TLS Auto Recycling) in Rancho Cordova, Calif., in 2010 it made $600,000 the first year. Today, Trunyan expects to close with $4.4 million. The growth is due to Trunyan’s experience with finance and his willingness to take some risks.

DEEP ROOTS

Neil Morris knows scrap. He’s the third generation of the Morris family to be in the scrap business. His grandfather, Earl Morris, started Morris Scrap Metal Company, Inc. in Kings Mountain, N.C. in 1931. Neil’s father Jerry Morris runs that business today. Neil got his start there and is now vice president. But, auto recycling runs just as deep in his veins.
