Shop and Technician Safety ~ Podcast Episode 57

Shop and Technician Safety ~ Podcast Episode 57Today on the automotive podcast, we are talking about shop safety. This is a topic that is often overlooked. Well, maybe not completely overlooked, but definitely not focused on as much as it should be. This really comes about because of something that happened at my dealer last week. We are very lucky that no one got hurt. Be safe out there kids

Join me on the road as we chat about:

  • Shop safety
  • Being aware of your surroundings
  • STOP wearing headphones
  • Pumping the brakes
  • Cars hitting a tool box
  • Tool box damage
  • Keep your head up
  • and more
