H&V Collision to Promote Workplace Fire Safety with State Labor Department

H&V Collision Centers of New York, the largest independently owned collision repair company in the Capital Region, will partner with state, federal and local departments to ensure workplace and fire safety on October 24, 2012.
The fire training will be conducted by the state Department of Labor along with the federal Occupational Health and Safety Administration. The Troy Fire Department has also been invited to participate, and members of the media are also invited to attend.      

The training will take place at the H&V Collision Centers location on Oakwood Avenue and will begin at 9 a.m.
“H&V Collision Centers places a great emphasis and value on safety," said H&V’s Vartan Jerian Jr. "This training will help ensure H&V has the safest possible locations for our customers and employees. We appreciate the help from our partners in state and federal government, along with our local fire department, in helping H&V meet our very strict standards of safety.”
The training by the state Department of Labor is part of a voluntary state program that offers assistance to companies in improving safety and compliance.
Along with the fire safety training, H&V has improved safety and environmental compliance by switching to greener, less toxic paints, state-of-the-art equipment and enhanced employee training.
Founded in Troy in the early 1970s, H&V opened a third location in spring 2010 on Central Avenue in Colonie, and a fourth location in Saratoga in 2012.
