Challenges in Motor Vehicle Repair...

The challenges facing those who own or work in independent garages are more complex than ever before. As well as the specialist requirement to keep up to date with advances in vehicle technology, the modern garage owner must navigate the maze of issues surrounding health & safety, environmental regulations, employment law and consumer rights. Keeping up with the requirements of the various aspects of the Law can be time consuming and can detract from your main aim of serving your customers’ needs, but the penalties for non-conformity mean you cannot ignore these issues. So where do you start?

The Blue Print for Workshops website aims to connect you with the information you need, whether you are a garage owner, vehicle technician or vehicle body shop specialist. This will enable you to not only keep up with the rapidly changing independent motor vehicle repair sector, but to stay ahead of the game. From here you will be able to view the definitive resources relating to health & safety, employment law and environmental regulations, view information on independent garage accreditation schemes, trade associations and industry bodies, find out about vehicle technician training courses, and keep up to date with all the motoring and industry events held across the country every year.
