The Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair (CCAR) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) are partnered for this informative webinar which was held on April 15, 2020.

In 2018, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported there were 27,150 non-fatal injuries reported in the automotive repair sector alone and more than 5,250 died on the job. Thats more than 14 deaths per day. Its time the Automotive industry does its part in lowering these injury and fatality numbers. Its time we protect our most valuable assets — our employees.

One of the most valuable safety resources available is OSHAs On-Site Consultation Program. This program was established to help small to medium-sized businesses (like yours) evaluate potential hazards as their workplace and improve their safety management program.

Bruce Love from OSHAs Office of Small Business Assistance joins us for this 45-minute webinar where we will talk further about how to help you identify and remove potential hazards, thus preventing employee injuries and fatalities.

OSHAs On-Site Consultation program offers no-cost and confidential occupational safety and health services to small- and medium-sized businesses in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and several U.S. territories, with priority given to high-hazard worksites. On-site Consultation services are separate from enforcement and do not result in penalties or citations. Consultants from state agencies or universities work with employers to identify workplace hazards, provide advice for compliance with OSHA standards, and assist in establishing and improving safety and health programs.

The Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair (CCAR) is a non-profit organization with a singular focus on the automotive industry and its needs for safety and hazardous material compliance and training. Founded in 1994 with grant funding from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), CCAR is also one of the original Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) Alliance partners and is the only partner focused on providing safety best practice information to the automotive collision and repair industries. CCAR has twice been recognized by the ASE Training Managers Council (ATMC) with their \”National Excellence in Training\” award and was chosen by the North American Hazmat Action Committee (NAAHAC) to develop hazardous material handling training courses.
