HORT MANAGEMENT:
Computer Cost Estimator for Landscape Management Services, Version 6.0 for PCs (Microsoft Excel)

Cost estimating and job bidding are among the most perplexing and time-consuming tasks of landscape managers, particularly those who are new in the business and have no benchmark data on which to base their estimates. Yet accurate cost estimating is one of the most crucial elements for business success.

Developed by The University of Georgia, HORT MANAGEMENT is a menu-driven and user friendly program, containing a series of worksheets which assist the user in estimating overhead costs, labor costs, labor costs, and hourly costs of equipment items. The main component of the program, the Bid Estimator, calculates a bid price and break-even price for a particular job. Costs are then translated into a contract for presenting to the client. New in Version 6.0 is a tree canopy calculator that assists the user in estimating tree canopy areas for spraying and pruning.

This program is not only designed for instructors or commercial grounds managers. Institutional, municipal, recreational or private landscape managers will also find the program useful in determining job costs and production times.

“Right-to-Know” Hazard Communication Compliance Program

Any business that uses even a single hazardous chemical must have a Hazard Communication program. In 2012, OSHA revised its Hazard Communication Standard to conform to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). GHS is an internationally agreed upon system that will replace the various classification and labeling standards used in different countries. The deadline for training employees on new labels and safety data sheet format is December 1, 2013. Until the full compliance deadline of June 1, 2016, elements of both the old and new systems may be used and employees should understand both. Here is the step-by-step process for the business owner to develop their new “Right-to-Know” Hazard Communication Program and to facilitate the required training of employees. This product includes a detailed instruction manual for the employer to develop a fully compliant program, as well as a 3 disk set for training employees that includes a basic Hazard Communication training DVD for the Nursery and Landscape Industries, a Global Harmonization System training DVD, and important documents to help you with compliance. It also includes an 800 number with free support for implementing this new standard at your facility.
