Hamilton, Ontario — April 18, 2016 — A new series of evening workshops commences in May, focusing on profitability and the top 10 things that can go wrong at body shops when it comes to health and safety.
The workshops will take place in numerous communities across Ontario and are being presented by Collision Industry Information Assistance (CIIA). The profitability segment will be presented by representatives of 3M Canada. The health and safety portion of the evening will be presented by Workplace Safety and Prevention Services (WSPS).
John Norris is the Executive Director of CIIA. He says the workshops will also offer autobody professionals an opportunity to provide recommendations to the association to help address today’s most pressing issues.
“Our guest speakers will highlight new tools and options for better shop profitability and we’ll also get a chance to hear new updates from the Ontario College of Trades, as well as some good recommendations for shop owners to avoid labour fines and penalties,” says Norris.
The workshops are open to both collision repair facility owners and all staff currently employed in the industry. A $10 admission fee at the door will help cover room, food, refreshments and training costs.
All workshops start at 6 p.m. Please call 1-866-309-4272 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register for any of these workshops.
