Health and Safety
Health and Safety compliance is vital for all businesses, and with the complex nature of vehicle body repair and the risks associated with many of the materials used in the repair process, you need the peace of mind that you are dealing with someone who understands the industry.
The RMI's Health Safety service aims to ensure all of its members fully comply with the many complex legislative demands and it ensures the safety and protection of you, your staff, your customers and your business.
We provide a structured assessment and monitoring system designed to cater specifically for all sectors of the motor vehicle industry. We carry out assessments and generate an action plan to help you comply with Health & Safety and environmental legislation.
Once we have set up your system, your dedicated Health & Safety manager will carry out regular and on-going visits to update your documentation, keep you up to date with latest legislation and proactively develop the safety culture within your business.

Many bodyshops already harness the power of the internet for technical information - indeed the majority of manufacturers information is delivered online these days.
But information alone is not enough to solve some vehicle problems. What is needed is insight and advice - and the Independent Garage Association (IGA), alongside the National Body Repair Association (NBRA) has established a new channel of technical information for members.
The RMI Technical Forum is open to all members and will provide a platform to ask questions - and receive answers from colleagues around the country, who may have faced similar issues.
The forum is moderated by the experts from the RMI Technical Helpdesk and over time we hope it will build into the first stop for peer-to-peer technical advice sharing in the professional automotive community.
Also within the Technical forum are informal areas where members can discuss industry issues and share best practice.

Modern motor vehicles contain an ever increasing array of advancing technologies, many driven by vehicle safety requirements, such as EuroNCAP and many others driven by customer demand. Therefore, it is vital that bodyshop technicians and VDA's maintain and update their skills and knowledge to ensure they can respond to these advances in technology; this will enable the business to reinstate damaged vehicle systems and structures.
The RMI is offering a unique benefit for members that will enable you to update the skills of your technicians and find out more about dealing with new vehicle technologies.
Wherever possible our trainer comes to you, minimising time lost travelling to a college or training centre. Currently, our RMI experts are visiting members to provide them with an insight into all aspects of hybrid technology safety awareness. They will take you and your technicians through the sort of challenges that will become all too familiar as increasing numbers of hybrid vehicles come through your doors.
