November 29, 2018 – CCAR (The Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair) is pleased to announce the addition of new Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Alliance content on its main website, www.ccar-greenlink.org. The new content is designed to be mobile-device friendly, easier to use and easier to access for all of CCAR’s (automotive-specific) OSHA Alliance resources.
The initial Alliance between OSHA and CCAR was signed in 2004 and was renewed in 2006, 2008, and again in 2015. The latest renewal is a five-year extension. CCAR’s Alliance resources have an emphasis in the areas of lift safety, Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) batteries, and contaminated refigerants.
Under the Occupational Safety and Health act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthy workplace for their employees. OSHA’s role is to promote the safety and health of America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards; providing training, outreach and education; establishing partnerships and encouraging continual process improvement in the workplace for safety and health.

CCAR was established in 1994 as a non-profit organization that works internationally with the automotive industry, original equipment manufacturers, career and technical schools, collision and automotive repair shops, governments, municipalities and other organizations to provide best practices information and training.
In addition to being an OSHA Alliance Partner, CCAR provides training programs to address Hazardous Materials Handling requirements as outlined by the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) to keep automotive shop employees and students properly trained, safe and in compliance with current regulations.
