t’s funny how relationships come and go. Then they come back again when they need help wiring a thermostat! But seriously, relationships are probably my most valued gain as I’ve been in this industry. There’s friendships with customers, some came easy and some were forged. Friends in the industry; associates, sales people and other dealers. Community; business owners, community leaders and even politicians. And of course co-workers, which become more like family. I’m sure you’ve thought about it, but I’d say we spend more time with these than we do our actual family most weeks.

Last weekend those lines blurred a little for us. Our business supported and sponsored a community event. We encouraged our co-workers to bring out their families to enjoy the day and spend some fun time together. Of course it was a hit and we all had a great time. Yet more importantly, I believe it strengthened family relationships. Which family you ask? Co-workers? Bloodlines? Community? Yes. We spend a lot of energy on improving our businesses, and rightfully so. Because your business is not just another employment house. You are a community leader, an industry example, a relationship investor and family builder. Josh Hauser

t’s hard to believe that summer is coming to a close and the kids are getting ready to go back to school. It seems like it was just last week that I was writing the last article. I had the opportunity to visit the Central Ohio chapter last month and I am looking forward to visiting the rest of the chapters

in the next several months. I’ll be heading to Cleveland in September for the Annual Heat & Plumb the Country – Cuyahoga County. I am excited about participating in this event. This is the 13th year for ACCA Cleveland to provide safe heat and the 10th year for PHCC Northeast Ohio to provide water audits and plumbing repairs for elderly/ disabled, low-income homeowners and veterans in the Northeastern Ohio area. If you don’t know already, PHCC National is rolling out the biggest membership drive in its history with a goal of growing our association to 6,000 members by 2020. PHCC Ohio will be participating in the drive and we’re looking forward to working with all our members to grow our association. The national convention, CONNECT 2017, is October 3-6 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I hope you can join the Ohio delegation and attend this year. I’m looking forward to attending to “connect” with other contractors from around the country, participating in the education seminars and especially looking forward to the closing reception at the Harley-Davidson Museum. Speaking of conventions, we held our first convention committee meeting for the 2018 Ohio Convention in July. We’re heading back to Columbus and our theme is “We’ve Got You Covered.” Look for more details in the months to come. As a final note I wanted to congratulate Lance Begoon on being named State of Ohio Plumbing Inspector Supervisor. Prior to his new position, Lance was a plumbing inspector 6

with the Department of Commerce. He has been with the Division for over two years, and often teaches inspector and contractor classes on behalf of the state. PHCC Ohio is looking forward to working with Lance in his new position.

ith summer here, heat stress issues can rear their ugly head. Don’t be caught ill-prepared for an incident and a subsequent visit by OSHA – establish your heat stress program today. Simply telling your employees that it is a hot day and they should take breaks when they need to and drink as much water as necessary will not meet OSHA’s expectations and could very easily result in a citation.

The risk of heat stress depends upon many factors related to the individual employee and this makes the challenge of making a safe workplace for all even more challenging. Those risk factors include the employee’s physical condition, the temperature and humidity, clothing worn, the pace of work and how strenuous it may be, exposure to sun and environmental conditions such as air movement.

ADMINISTRATIVE/ENGINEERING CONTROLS • Assess the demands of all jobs and have monitoring and control strategies in place for hot days and hot workplaces • Schedule hot jobs for cooler parts of the day • Reduce physical demands • Permit employees to take intermittent rest breaks with water breaks and use relief workers • Have air conditioning and shaded areas available for breaks/rest periods with ice available • Increase air movement • Exhaust hot air and steam

OSHA expects more from employers than merely offering water, rest and shade – additional steps to address heat in the workplace need to be taken. OSHA also insists upon: (1) implementing an “acclimatization program” for new employees and those returning from extended time away, such as vacations or leaves of absence; (2) implementing a work/rest schedule; and (3) providing a climate controlled area for cool down. For those employers utilizing temporary employees, there is a greater risk of heat-related illnesses and OSHA would urge greater care in adopting an acclimatization program for them.

HEALTH SCREENING/ACCLIMATIZATION • Let employees get used to hot working conditions by using a staggered approach over several days, such as beginning work with 50 percent of the normal workload and time spent in the hot environment and then generally increase it over five days.

Your heat stress program can have many components, including:

OSHA is also inclined to cite an employer if prompt remedial action is not taken when an employee falls victim to heat stress. Establish specific procedures for heat-related emergencies and provisions for first aid when symptoms appear. Remember, employees may resist first aid because of the confusion caused by their heat stress. So, training on the signs and symptoms is also encouraged.


• Loosely worn reflective clothing to deflect heat • Cooling vest and wetted clothing for special circumstances

TRAINING • Hazards of stress • Responsibility to avoid heat stress • Recognition of danger signs/symptoms because employees may not recognize their own • First aid procedure • Effects of certain medications in hot environment

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE CLOTHING/EQUIPMENT • Light summer clothing allowing free movement and sweat evaporation

OHIO PHC CONTRACTOR • Volume 2017, Issue 3

Make employees aware that certain medications, such as diuretics, anti-hypertensives (blood pressure), anti-cholinergics (pulmonary disease – COPD), and alcohol abuse, can exacerbate problems.

FALL 2017 – BUYING VS. LEASING Michael Bohinc, CPA


uring a recent conversation with a few contractors, a question was posed regarding company vehicles. “Is it better to buy (finance) or lease a vehicle purchase?” I was asked my thoughts on the subject so I gave the definitive answer “It depends.” It wasn’t the answer that they were looking for but I explained that it depends on the contractor’s situation. So, I decided to make that the topic of this issue’s column.

Let’s get the easy method out of the way first. Purchase the vehicle paying cash. While I know a number of contractors who only do it this way, for many contractors this isn’t an option.









So they turn to financing or leasing the purchase of the new vehicle. Before we look at the differences between buying (financing) and leasing, let’s define each method. Financing – Obtaining a loan from a bank or financing company to purchase a vehicle. Leasing – An agreement by an owner (lessor) of a vehicle and a second party (lessee) granting the right to its exclusive possession and use for a specific period and under specified conditions in return for specified periodic lease payments.



You own the vehicle either when you pay You do not own the vehicle. You are the full price up-front or you pay the loan granted use of the vehicle for the lease’s off term but must turn it in at the end of the lease unless you decide to buy it. This is either the full cash price or the down payment and other fees due upon receipt of the vehicle

They can include first-month’s payment, a security deposit and other fees due upon receipt of the vehicle

Loan payment based on the length of the Lease payment based on length of lease loan, total amount financed and interest term, reduction in vehicle’s value during rate. the lease and interest rate You can drive as many miles as you want but remember higher mileage lowers the vehicle’s residual value.

You will pay significant fees for miles driven over miles included in the lease.

At the end of the loan’s term, you own the vehicle free and clear.

At lease end, you will turn the vehicle in or you may have the option to purchase the vehicle from the lessor.

While vehicle’s trade-in or resale value may be lower, it doesn’t impact you any other way.

Most leases hold you responsible for it and you’ll have to pay extra for what they consider excessive.

OHIO PHC CONTRACTOR • Volume 2017, Issue 3

Some things to point out in this comparison chart *… 1) Both methods are impacted by the interest rate charged… either on the loan or the lease. 2) The monthly payment is also impacted by the down payment made on the loan. 3) The monthly lease payment is impacted by the residual (buy out) value and the annual mileage allowance. 4) If you terminate a lease early, fees charged for terminating it early may be as much, or more than, the payment amounts left on the lease. 5) Depending on the type of vehicle lease you have, you may have the ability to purchase the vehicle for its’ residual value at the end of the lease. A few other things to consider in deciding which way to go include your financial situation (including cash flow), how the vehicle will be used and length of time you typically hang on to a vehicle. There are two types of vehicle leases: open-ended and closed-ended. In an open-end lease, the lessee is responsible for any difference between the fair market value (FMV) of the vehicle and the residual value (RV) of the vehicle at lease end. If the FMV is greater than RV, then the lessee receives the difference between the two amounts. If the RV is greater than the FMV, then the lessee is obligated to pay the lessor the difference.

In a closed-end lease, the lessee has no obligation at the end of the lease. It doesn’t matter what the FMV or RV is. You turn the lease in at the end of the lease and you’re not responsible for any difference between the FMV and RV of the vehicle. It’s essentially a “walk away” lease. (NOTE: You would still be responsible for excessive wear and tear if applicable.) There are changes coming in the way leases are accounted for on a company’s books. We’ll talk about those another time. They are a few years away. So, as you can see, there are a lot of factors involved in deciding which option (purchase/loan or lease) is right for you. Which option is best for you? It depends. * (Information from Michael A. Bohinc is a certified public accountant in Cleveland, OH. He is an instructor for the National PHCC Educational Foundation.

ACCO Past Presidents Seven contractors got together because of threats to the mechanics lien law. Mike Callahan from Columbus agreed to chair the organization. With seed money from Cincinnati, Columbus and the now defunct Ohio Valley Sheet Metal Association, the group was able to get all the trades involved in the “battle” and ultimately the group won. A convention was held in Columbus in 1977 where officers were elected and the vision was to get contractors involved from every section of the state. 1976-1977 1976-1977 1977-1981 1981-1983 1983-1984 1984-1985 1985-1988 1988-1989 1989-1990 1990-1991 1991-1992 1992-1993 1993-1994 1994-1995 1995-1996 1996-1997 1997-1998 1998-1999

AND HERE’S YOUR PROBLEM WITH THE LABOR FORCE... By Wes Perry Major Account Sales | ADP | Strategic HCM Solutions for Partners and Clients


he picture says it all. While some may chuckle at this, it’s the reality of how people think. And why we can create all the jobs we want to, but it won’t matter. Why? Because somewhere along the way the message was delivered to an entire generation of kids that turning a wrench or doing a modicum of physical labor was beneath them. That going to college and pursuing a “higher standard” of achievement was the be-all goal of life - and apparently to come out with a crushing load of student debt. This is a leading factor in the labor shortage and the “War on Talent” People don’t want to work. Here are some quick facts: • 3.1% unemployment is great - unless you want to hire someone. • Across the country, the labor force shrank in size to 10.4 million workers in 2015 from 10.6 million at the bottom of the market in 2010, according to a new analysis of Census data. Less products produced, more strain on the infrastructure. • In nearly every survey out there, CFO’s state that a lack of talent is their #1 concern or challenge to their growth. • Just here in NE Ohio there are 868 Welding jobs open. 868... need a job?

• 10,000 baby boomers leaving the workforce - daily. The loss of intellectual capital is amazing. The “war on talent” as we call it is a real thing and one that needs to be addressed. One concern that people need to address, is the stigma that our country has put on being a tradesman that can actually do a job. Not everyone is cut out to go to college. Creation of a culture within a company that promotes these careers as beneficial is also key: • Showing grads that the benefits plans they get from manufacturing are just as good as a “white collar” job • Career paths, advancement and training. • Recognition for work (no, just going to work for the 40 hours isn’t enough any longer) • Using tech to enable people to engage in their work. Promotion of the fields that make our country run the way we need it to - construction, welding, plumbing and the like has got to become a priority or the system will break down.
