In partnership with the Safety in Schools Foundation of Canada and AMTA, Introduction to Automotive Shop Safety is an online course aimed at providing workers entering the automotive repair industry with a basic understanding of the common hazards found in automotive shops, employer and employee responsibilities regarding safety and more.
The course centers around a case study of a 17-year-old employee severely injured working in a retail automotive shop. The case study includes a filmed interview with the OH&S investigator who led the investigation.
The course is recommended for any young person considering working in a commercial or retail automotive shop and is available to all AMTA members.
This course was made possible through funding from the Alberta Creative Sentencing Program.
