Automotive Garage Insurance
No matter how many years of experience your employees may have in working in an automative garage or auto repair shop, working underneath a vehicle presents an opportunity for injury.
Given the size and weight of the average vehicle, improper usage of a jack or lift can have disastrous consequences. And because jacks and lifts are used so prevalently in shops, workers may become complacent, thus increasing the likelihood of injury.
To help protect workers and ensure that your business stays accident-free, it’s important to keep in mind the following safety precautions:
Choosing the Right Equipment
As with any task, using the right tools can improve efficiency and safety. There are a number of tools that can help employees work underneath a vehicle.
Using Equipment Properly
Once you have chosen the right equipment for the job, you will want to ensure that workers are taking the appropriate steps to ensure their safety and the safety of their co-workers.
Garage pits are used in shops and allow mechanics to work under vehicles without the use of a jack, lift or other device. However, before installing or utilizing a garage pit, it’s important to keep in mind some general safety precautions.
Protect Your Business with the Right Coverage
In addition to the on-the-job risks your employees face each and every day, auto repair garages carry a number of other unique exposures. Things like technician errors, equipment damage and more can all be incredibly costly and can lead to business disruptions or worse.
Thankfully, you can protect your investment by acquiring the appropriate auto garage insurance coverage. To learn more about your options and to determine the policy that works best for your automotive garage business, contact Regional Insurance today.
