Facing Increased Complexity and Liability – How to Protect Your Collision Repair Business! — RD9

The purpose of this presentation is to layout key concepts on how to protect your collision repair business with the increasing complexity and liability this industry faces to meet OEM vehicle repair standards.  Utilizing real examples of where proper repairs saved liability (bodily injury and property damage) for the Body Shop.  Then to add interests and perspective, we will simultaneously make the case for an automotive aftermarket industry that is thought to be a higher hazard – tire retreading.  We will show parallel lessons of loss prevention and proper techniques that transfer the majority of the liability on retreading tire casings to the OEMs. Then our focus will be Collision Repair Loss Prevention which will include the following points from the following: cameras showing your work; critical safety components and structural work; certifications; OEM costs; remembering who the customer is; assistance that an insurance professional should provide; not settling; merits adopting operation procedures with language similar if not identical to the SCRS position statement; technology challenge; talent acquisition/development and to grow margins.
