Risk management tips for automotive repair shop owners

Tip #1:
Whenever the wheel nuts have been removed for tire repair they must be torqued to the manufacturer’s specification when they’re replaced. Wheel nut tightness should be checked after a set period of use, usually every 80 kilometers, and auto centers need to tell the customer about this requirement.
Tip #2:
A little attention to basic housekeeping can help avoid dangerous trip and fall accidents with power tools, and prevent fires igniting from improperly stored fuels. Keep work areas clear of obstacles, clean up any spills or waste, and ensure the safe storage of inflammable materials and liquids.
Tip #3:
Each year, tens of millions of dollars’ worth of equipment is stolen in Canada. Having a current inventory and keeping detailed records of all equipment (and tools) used on project sites is crucial for recovery and management.
