Mississauga, Ontario -- September 23, 2014 -- A critical gap in safety education for the operators of vehicle lifts in Ontario’s automobile repair facilities has now been patched, thanks to a new online training program offered through Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS), in partnership with the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI).

“Members of a number of Ontario’s automobile associations told us about a  widespread need and demand for lift training that meets stringent North American standards,” says WSPS’ Norm Kramer, a health and safety consultant with expertise in this area.  “Accidents involving hoists are among the top three issues facing this sector. In fact, between 2009 and 2011, there have been seven fatalities in the auto service industry related to lifting and jacking vehicles.”
