The Color of Safety
 
A service manager who was in the middle of a service drive remodel decided to paint his curb as a safety precaution against a fall or trip. He wanted to paint it red to match their brand colors. Another dealership had just undergone extensive branding. The branding team painted their oily rag cans the beautiful blue associated with this particular brand.

Ask yourself, “do you know where your evacuation assembly point is at?” or “what was the subject of your last safety training and what will be the subject of your next safety training?” If you’re not sure, then you could probably manage your safety programs more effectively.

Documentation is the Best Offense – The Yellow Box
 
First impressions can mean everything especially when dealing with a regulatory inspection. If your manifests and documentation are orderly, the impression given to an Inspector is that the rest of your business is also in order. It also indicates that you pay close attention to the details involved in maintaining a safe and environmentally compliant business. Proper documentation also gives evidence of compliance as it is often stated that “if it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen.”
