The Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair (CCAR) has added a “Paint Rule” module for its S/P2 e-learning program.
The new “Paint Rule” module is now available at no additional cost to users of the S/P2 Collision Repair training. Collision shop subscribers will find the module in the “Pollution Prevention” course.
The purpose of the module is to increase awareness of new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations applying to Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) in collision shop paint operations. Topics include proper spray gun and spray booth procedures, compliance, training and required recordkeeping for paint-stripping and surface-coating operations.
S/P2 (www.sp2.org) is an e-learning program developed by CCAR to address key safety and pollution prevention issues for automotive repair professionals. The training is based on EPA and U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards, which require that personnel be trained on safety and environmental regulations at the beginning of their employment, and at least annually thereafter.
Established in 1994, CCAR is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. CCAR’s 200+ affiliates represent all segments of the automotive industry. Its mission is to work with the industry around the world, with career/technical schools, governments and other organizations to provide best practice information and training, and to measure improvements related to:
