Safer Alternatives for the Automotive Industry

Commonly-used cleaners in an automotive shop can be dangerous to your health and to the environment. In addition, many operations within an automotive shop (floor cleanup, antifreeze replacement, etc.) can lead to the mismanagement and misapplication of products and, therefore, may cause serious compliance issues for your business. It is important for owners and technicians in an automotive repair shop to be informed of the chemicals contained in the products they use as well as having good working habits to reduce liability and to improve the business’s bottom line.

PPRC developed these resources to help automotive owners and technicians become informed about common chemicals found in repair shops. The resources will help Do-It-Yourselfers (DIYers) as well as industry professionals.
