Collision Repair Campaign

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description EPA's Collision Repair Campaign (CRC) is a two-year outreach initiative for the auto body sector that promotes early compliance with new air emission standards and voluntary reductions in toxic chemical releases. In September 2008, EPA Region 1-NE will launch an initial round of workshops for auto body businesses that feature best practices, pollution prevention techniques, and the new rule's requirements. By attending the workshops, auto body shops will obtain a certificate verifying that they have completed the classroom training, as required under the new rule. EPA will also hold a free train-the-trainer half-day workshop and webinar for state enforcement and assistance staff, municipal employees, collision repair businesses, and community organizations.

The Collision Repair Campaign (CRC) website describes exposures and health effects from chemicals found at collision repair shops; links to information about best practices; features tools for calculating cost savings that accompany reductions in emissions, and includes downloadable manuals and videos.
