Automotive mechanics and shop workers usually have hands-on jobs, which can certainly become difficult under certain conditions. Most shops use heavy chemicals to repair and restore the vehicles they care for, and some fail to equip their building with adequate ventilation and breathing masks. This kind of chemical exposure can be dangerous and might even cause lasting health problems.
Auto shops also utilize heavy and complex machinery to replace engines, change tires, and perform various other mechanical services. Sometimes outdated, poorly maintained, or faulty equipment might malfunction, leading to amputation, broken bones, concussions, or worse. If the tools and machines in your shop are not equipped with the proper safety measures, or you are not given adequate tools, you could be seriously injured.
Additionally, the generally busy environment of an automotive shop can pose a danger to workers and visitors alike. You might slip on a loose cord, or could be struck by an unsecured part or machine. Even some of the most organized, clean shops can be dangerous if all equipment, tools, and vehicles are not fully secured.
