We promise to provide a clean, safe, and eco-friendly environment while your vehicle is being repaired and do so by providing the following practices:
  • We use water-borne paint products to limit the impact our practices have on the environment and ensure we are providing our employees with a safe working environment.
  • All of our employees are trained in WHMIS so they are aware of how to properly read chemical labels and how to safely handle the products they deal with on a daily basis.
  • We require all body technicians to wear steel toed boots, protective coveralls, ear plugs and safety goggles.
  • We require all paint technicians to wear steel toed boots, protective paint suits, ear plugs, fresh air masks and safety goggles.
  • Our Health & Safety Committee completes monthly walk-around inspections of the shop and equipment; the committee meets monthly to address any health or safety concerns.
