NASCAR's Jeff Gordon Hosts Free Training DVD on Air Toxics Reductions

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has released a training DVD to help auto body shops comply with a rule reducing air pollution from vehicle painting. This type of pollution, called toxic air emissions, can cause smog, cancer, or other serious health effects, the DVD points out.

Hosted by NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon, the DVD includes steps body shops can take to comply with the rule, while improving worker protection and saving the shops money. EPA produced the DVD in both English and Spanish as a supplement to the EPA paint rule training workshops being held for shop owners and employees in many parts of the country.

The free 19-minute training video features testimonies from large and small shop owners addressing the paint strip rule, best practices, worker protection, outreach sources, and more.

In December 2007, EPA issued a rule requiring reductions in air toxic emissions from auto body shops that use spray application to paint cars or that use paint strippers containing a toxic substance called methylene chloride. The rule applies to auto painting operations that are smaller emitters, as well as those that emit larger amounts of air toxics. Existing shops must comply with the rule by January 2011; new shops have to comply by 180 days after startup.

The video is available on EPA's Web site as a Windows Media File (59 MB) here: www.epa.gov/collisionrepair/video/CRC20090427.wmv. For more information on EPA's Collision Repair campaign, visit www.epa.gov/collisionrepair.
