Vaughan, Ontario — June 20, 2016 — Collision Industry Information Assistance (CIIA) held an evening workshop recently to discuss a number of topics, including updates on apprenticeships, new grants incentives and new technology for the shop. The workshop took place at Monte Carlo Inn in Vaughan, Ontario.
One of the presentations during the event focused on a topic that is almost certainly top of mind for professional repairers: collision centre financials and profitability. The presentation was delivered by representatives of 3M Canada and covered some of the issues that repairers must look for to maintain critical profitability.
Also on the slate was a thought-provoking presentation by representatives of Workplace Safety and Prevention Services (WSPS). During the workshop, they dug into 10 things that can go wrong in health and safety. This is a critical area of concern for repairers. In addition to the human factor, a single injury, even one that is relatively minor, can seriously impact a busy facility’s production schedule.
The evening also featured a Q&A session on what CIIA should be working on for its members.
The event was sponsored by 3M and Carcone’s Auto Recycling & Wheel Refinishing.
