Health & safety guide

Our Automotive Workshops Work Health and Safety Guidelines provide practical safety solutions to the common hazards and risks within the automotive workshop industry.

People working with vehicles are at greatest risk of sustaining injuries due to body stressing; slips trips and falls; as well as being hit by moving vehicles and items of plant such as forklift incidents. These injuries account for around 50% of the sector's work injury claims (ReturnToWorkSA work injury claims between 2007 and 2015).

This guide will help you understand your work health and safety responsibilities and the importance of safety in your business. It provides simple and practical safety solutions and tips to help you uphold your responsibilities and make your workshop safe.

Free printed copies of the guidelines are available on request.
