Briefcase

Local businesses go through OSHA program

Professionals Auto Body in Duncans­ville and Altoona and sister company KarPro Tire & Auto Center have all been through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration consultation program and have met the first stage of the government standards for safe working conditions and environment for their employees.

“It’s unusual for a business to call OSHA and ask them to come in and examine their operation for anything not up to their standards,” a release from the companies said.

Now after almost three months of training and improvements, we can say this is another reason why Professionals Auto Body and KarPro are so much different than others in this market,” a release from owner Ron Perretta said.

The Indiana University of Pennsylvania provided guidance regarding OSHA regulations, and Bonnie Williams of Ad­van­tage assisted the businesses with compliance.
