Abstract:
This guide reflects changes in the industry since the late 90's, including air conditioning; air bags; hybrid vehicles; "compliant" paints and spray guns; and Small and Medium Area Repair Techniques (SMART). It provides good practice and helps operators stay within the law. It includes extensive guidance on safety in vehicle inspection pits; tyre repair, replacement and inflation; and safe spraying of isocyanate-containing paints.

The book covers specific health and safety issues faced by employers and the self-employed in vehicle maintenance and repair (including tyre, exhaust, and windscreen replacement); body repair, refinishing and valeting; and the roadside recovery and repair of vehicles. It also covers topics that are common across the industry, such as working under vehicles; fire and explosion; noise and vibration; electrical safety; and organising health and safety.
