Vehicle Service Workshop


The hazards found in vehicle service workshops are many and varied, ranging from lifting equipment to the use and handling of chemicals, from manual handling to slips, trips and falls. However, with proper planning, supervision, management, equipment, training and inspection, the likelihood of accidents, injuries, damage and downtime can be significantly reduced.
