CCAR was established in 1994 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works, internationally in scope, with the automotive industry, OEMs, career and technical schools, collision and automotive repair shops, governments, municipalities, and other organizations to provide best practice information and training.
Over the past nearly two decades, CCAR has built and maintained close alliances and partnerships with the EPA, OSHA, DOT, and NAAHAC in order to keep automotive shop employees and students trained, safe, and in compliance.
The Coordinating Committee for Automotive Repair (CCAR®), as an extension of its CCAR-GreenLink Environmental Compliance Assistance Center and S/P2 (Safety and Pollution Prevention) e-learning program, has developed the GreenLink Shop standard of excellence. The GreenLink Shop recognition serves to promote consumer confidence in their local automotive repair facilities’ environmental and safety awareness and stewardship.
To earn the GreenLink Shop status, automotive shops must maintain a standard of excellence in environmental, health and safety operations – including employee training and shop management.
I highly recommend CCAR and the SP2 program to any organization looking for an up to date, consistent shop safety and hazard communication program in either an active shop or training environment. - J Hurd
