Some of the key areas where these incidents occur include:

  • Manual handing of vehicle parts and tyres
  • Exposure to hazardous substances such as isocyanates within paints
  • Falls from height e.g. into vehicle pits and from the top of commercial vehicles
  • Dermatitis from vehicle engine oils and cleaning substances
  • Vehicle emissions
  • Struck by moving vehicles in the workshop and during roadside recoveries
  • Slips and trips of spilt substances and trailing cables

In order to maintain health and safety standards within the Motor Vehicle Repair industry it is important to identify the most frequent and serious risks and adopt the necessary precautions, taking account of time, money and resources.
