Lafayette, Colo. – October 7, 2021 – Today, KPA, a leading provider of workplace compliance software and services, announced a new package of safety and compliance tools and services geared specifically for automotive collision and service centers. The new package is designed to help collision repair centers meet training requirements, keep employees safe and productive, and comply with OSHA, EPA, and DOT regulatory requirements.
Collision and Service Center Safety and Compliance Package: Vera EHS Essentials
KPA’s Vera EHS Essentials package will help customers manage their safety programs through consulting services, software, and compliance training designed for automotive service centers. This offering includes several core components, including, but not limited to:
- Initial and ongoing consulting services that include audits, inspections, evacuation map creation, and the KPA yellow box for waste manifests,
- Software to help capture and track issues, access to a database of safety data sheets (SDS), and complete the essential OSHA, EPA, and DOT required training courses for the industry,
- Required written programs such as Hazard Communication, Respiratory Protection, Emergency Response, and access to KPA’s document library, and
- Client alert communications that provide local access and insights to ever-changing regulations and local regulatory pressure observed by KPA’s 100+ team of consultants who perform over 25,000 EHS audits annually.
“We developed the Vera EHS Essentials package to support smaller collision centers. We noticed that most locations realized there were large holes in their compliance and safety programs. Owners and Managers who worried about compliance needed a solution at a budget-friendly cost. Our Essentials program was designed to help those smaller shops jump-start compliance and focus on their priority needs first. This program allows Shop Owners to be consistent in compliance and safety so they can spend more time on their business and their customers,” said Wayne Curtis, Director of Field Services for KPA’s workplace health and safety consulting.
Affordably priced, the Vera EHS Essentials offering is tailored to the needs of each client. During scheduled site visits, clients work with their KPA consultant to assess areas of risk. Ongoing services include fit testing of respiratory protection equipment, PPE hazard assessment, on-site respiratory protection training, and more.
With over thirty years of experience in the automotive industry, KPA has a unique understanding of the tools and services that collision and service centers need to eliminate time-consuming, manual processes that will save money and prevent accidents and regulatory violations.
