Safe practices are a sign that a business is well run, cares about its employees wellbeing and is aware that if they do not comply with the appropriate safety regulations; they could be liable for fines or even legal action. Along with essential activities such as professional and appropriate clothing and constant training; a safe bodyshop needs to invest in equipment that not only keeps the user safe, but allows them to do the job efficiently. Of course all machinery and equipment can be dangerous if used incorrectly, so it is vital to invest in training to make sure employees know how to use machinery properly. This is not just a safety consideration; well trained staff will work more effectively and efficiently.

Naked Flame

Many bodyshops and garages use Oxy-Acetylene as the fuel for naked flame heating and welding purposes. The products used create safety issues based around the use of a naked flame in a confined space. This is potentially bad for the user and for the environment. In order to safely use the product, considerable staff training is required to be able to carry out tasks efficiently and safely.

Acetylene is an extremely flammable gas and differs from other gases due to its unstable nature and tendency to pollute by emitting toxic fumes. Fire and rescue services nationally attend many hundreds of fires and incidents each year involving acetylene cylinders.
