Maintenance, Management and Good Housekeeping Green Auto Body Assessment (Canada) Mobile App
The Maintenance, Management and Good Housekeeping Green Auto Body Assessment (Canada) is an app that is part of a series on Green Auto Body Assessments, which includes the Automobile Repair and Refinishing Green Auto Body Assessment app.
How does it work?
The Maintenance, Management and Good Housekeeping Green Auto Body Assessment is a form that is used by auto body shops and mechanics to capitalize on pollution prevention opportunities based upon the different activities/processes/tasks taking place in the auto body shop or repair shop. This form includes topics such as ordering green products from suppliers (chemical suppliers may have different formulations, some of which may be more environmentally friendly, or produce less hazardous waste); maintaining minimum inventory of solvents and other chemicals to reduce spoilage of unused product; use recapture to reuse solvent from rags and towels; have a spill response plan in place for employees; train spray painting gun operators in efficient practices; and date containers and packaging of materials so inventory can be cycled and waste of products can be minimized. Auto body shops and repair shops should have environmental management systems in place as a part of a pollution prevention program, of which this assessment is a valuable tool.
