OSHA targeting dealerships

June 21, 2013
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is targeting automotive repair and maintenance businesses, including new-car dealerships in six Western U.S. states, the National Automobile Dealers Association reported this month.
The agency’s Local Emphasis Program is operated by OSHA’s Region 8, based in Denver, Colo. This focused inspection activity, scheduled from April 16 and at least September 30, 2013, stems from five complaints OSHA Region 8 received in fiscal year 2010, all of which resulted in citations.
The NADA urges dealerships nationwide to review the inspection directive and their health and safety compliance. Dealerships with specific questions regarding their compliance can contact Lauren Bailey, with NADA Regulatory Affairs, at (703) 821-7040 or or 703.821.7040 or their state or local dealer associations.
