It’s All About Lean
The auto collision repair industry has been focused on lean the past several years. It seems like every time I turn around I am reading about lean, cycle times, etc. From what I understand, shops must improve cycle times by working much smarter. Or perhaps the insurance industry is the butcher and the repair shops must work with what they are given by the insurance company. Well, for whatever reason, I believe that this should be a concern of every body shop that wants to continue to stay in business in the future. With that said, BASF has stepped up to the plate to offer a lean workshop in Salt Lake City, UT on November, 9-10. To learn more about this workshop visit ABRN.
Helping Support The Collision Repair Industry
I would like to thank companies and individuals for supporting the technicians of tomorrow. This allows colleges to a better job by giving them the things that they need to teach students about the collision repair industry. Let’s face it, collision repair is a very expensive program. Not only do we require more lab space than many programs, we also require expensive equipment, and body shop and paint materials. With budgets being cut over the past several years, I have heard of a number of collision repair programs close. Therefore, I would like to comment everyone that supports collision repair schools and colleges. For instance, I just read about State Farm donating $70,000 to I-CAR Education Foundation. Kudos to you State Farm! Read more about this at ABRN.
Did You Replace The Seat Belts
A blog was recently featured on Collision Hub about replacing seat belts. Inspecting and replacing seat belts is something that may be easily overlooked when repairing a vehicle; however, this can lead serious injury if the vehicle is involved in another accident. Read the full blog to learn more about inspecting and replacing set belts on Collision Hub.
