Both organizations will pursue opportunities to speak, exhibit or appear at conferences and other industry-related events such as the International Autobody Congress and Exposition and the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair. OSHA and CCAR also intend to participate in forums, roundtable discussions and stakeholder meetings on issues related to the industry.

Established in 1994, CCAR represents all segments of the automotive industry. The committee works with all segments of the industry around the world, with career and technical schools and with governments and other organizations to provide best practice safety and health information and training for all who repair or maintain vehicles as a profession.
