Vehicle in Workshop

When working on a vehicle in the workshop always make sure that:

  • the parking brake is applied or the wheels are securely chocked to prevent the vehicle moving forwards or backwards.
  • the key is removed from key operated hood locks before any work is carried out around the front of the vehicle.
  • if the engine is to be run, there is adequate ventilation, or an extraction hose to remove exhaust fumes.
  • there is adequate room to raise the vehicle and remove the wheels, if necessary.
  • fender covers are always fitted if any work is to be carried out in the engine compartment.
  • the battery is disconnected if working on the engine, underneath the vehicle, or if the vehicle is raised.

CAUTION: When electric arc welding on a vehicle, always disconnect the generator wiring to prevent the possibility of a surge of current causing damage to the internal components of the generator.

  • if using welding equipment on the vehicle, a suitable fire extinguisher is readily available.
