  • Description:
    "Small businesses may not have safety and health professionals on staff, yet they can reduce injury and illness risks by obtaining safety and health information and adopting recommended practices. Most trade associations, franchisors, workers' compensation insurance groups and state health or labor departments are excellent resources for safety and health program materials. Comprehensive injury and illness prevention programs are recommended to reduce the risks for occupational injury, illness and death. You can: 1) Identify and evaluate hazards and adopt effective hazard controls and safe work practices to prevent work-related injuries and illnesses. 2) Lead a work group to address priority issues to help inform employers and policy makers about hazards and successful interventions. 3) Assist in the design of an effective system to track occupational injuries and illnesses in the automotive repair/maintenance industry. 4) Represent a partner organization to work on a goal implementation plan. Provide input to the NORA Coordinator on the implementation of goals (noracoordinator@cdc.gov) and suggest important issues to consider for future goals. 5) Promote the development of comprehensive occupational safety and health programs for automotive repair and maintenance establishments. 6) Evaluate potential exposures to hazardous materials in automotive repair and maintenance facilities. 7) Develop and evaluate effective training materials that assist employers and employees in the recognition and control of hazardous materials in automotive repair and maintenance facilities." - NIOSHTIC-2

    "The National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) is a partnership program to promote innovative research and improve workplace practices. Unveiled in 1996, NORA is a framework for guiding occupational safety and health research and interventions throughout the Nation. NORA stakeholders collaborate to identify critical workplace issues in industry sectors. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) convened a number of these partners to develop the National Services Agenda, which includes safety and health goals for the Automotive Repair industry. Groups such as employers, employee organizations, government agencies, and automotive repair/maintenance associations can build partnerships to implement these goals and help ensure that automotive repair and maintenance work environments are safe for all employees." - p.
