On Thursday, May 16, 2013, AASP-MN will host the “2013 Safety Compliance: AWAIR Workshop,” at its Roseville offices.  The workshop will be offered from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. or 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.

As of June 10, 2013 all automotive repair facilities, collision and mechanical, are required to have A Workplace Accident & Injury Reduction (AWAIR) program.  The purpose of the program is to help shop owners create a safer workplace, by providing a mechanism for identifying and correcting hazards.  An AWAIR program provides the framework for an effective safety program.

This workshop will review major hazards in the automotive repair industry and help attendees walk through an assessment of their shop and shop practices.  Whether completed during the workshop or at their own facility, the shop assessment will explain what to look for and what is most important—in terms of potential injuries, costs to the shop and costs of a penalty or OSHA citation.  Attendees will get an inspection form that can be tailored for their shop, an efficient way to keep tabs on potential safety hazards.

Representatives from Complete Health Environmental and Safety Services (CHESS) will walk attendees through developing their own program.  Participants who bring their laptop will leave with their own customized written AWAIR program, shop self-assessment and shop inspection form (value $1800).
