Autobody P2 Checklists
Question submitted on 4/5/16

Looking for new ideas to promote P2 to autobody shops. Have any P2 programs across the country developed new checklists? Thank you. Liz


There are lots and lots of P2 and compliance assistance checklists for auto body shops. Here are some that are more recent:

The State of Rhode Island and the U.S. EPA Region 5 states have developed self-certification programs for auto body shops. The Rhode Island program is a partnership between their Department of Environmental Management; University of Rhode Island (URI) Center for Pollution Prevention; the Department of Health's OSHA Consultative Services; and Davies Vocational School. They work with shops in the state to identify both environmental and health hazards. The Region 5 program is a cooperative effort among the states to develop a comprehensive self-certification checklist and other tools to help the industry understand the environmental, health, and safety regulations that effect them. Both programs include P2 and compliance information.

The Connecticut Department of the Environment has a variety of fact sheets related to P2 in the automotive repair industry, which were all updated in 2014 and 2015.

Ohio EPA has an up-to-date collection of compliance information for auto repair and auto body shops.

The California Department of Toxic Substances Control has P2 information for auto body shops. Their checklist was last updated in 2006.

Finally, you might want to check out the final report from MnTAP's 2008 work with auto body shops, which was part of a Minnesota Environmental Initiative project. It might give you some ideas for future projects. They also have information for companies.
