Safety in the Garage

Garage Safety

A garage is a place where safety is important. Garages can be a potentially hazardous environment for staff and customers including their children.

Think about the items used in a garage including sharp tools and implements, toxic and flammable substance including petrol, oils and, diesel. Others hazards include cleaning materials, paint bottles, spray paint cans and spare parts which can fall or cause a customer to trip.

TC Ireland Garage Safety

Work to keep unsupervised visitors clear of a working garage. Having a reception area separate from the garage workshop ensures customers do not enter and advice and guidance can be provided in a safe clean environment.

The following tips can be helpful in preventing accidents

  • Unplug power tools after use.
  • Don’t leave lengths of rope or cables lying around or hanging down from hooks.
  • Dispose of any flammable materials using authorise companies.
  • Ensure garage doors are safe and secure at all times.
  • Lock cars during repair and over night.
  • Keep pits covered and use signage to promote awareness of potential hazards.
  • Store pumps,  jacks, tyres and other equipment in a dedicated areas.
  • Clean the garage at regular intervals during the working day.
  • Pack away tools kits and materials when not in use.
  • Keep a stocked First Aid Kit within easy reach.
  • Have staff trained in First Aid.
