Covid-19 Safety Measures

with No Comments

To help prevent the spread of Covid-19, Dabler Auto Body has implemented numerous Covid-19 safety precautions that guide how we conduct our daily business. Every vehicle coming in for an estimate or repairs will be thoroughly disinfected, unless specifically instructed by the owner to not perform the disinfectant process when asked beforehand (do to chemical allergies or sensitivities).

All shop employees will wear gloves, safety glasses, long sleeve shirts, and respirators to protect themselves inside the shop during the disinfectant process. Employees are told to avoid touching their faces while wearing gloves, wash their hands immediately after removing gloves, and to promptly dispose of the gloves after removal.

Only EPA registered disinfectant products are used during this process, and all manufacturer instructions are strictly followed during the disinfectant procedure. All surfaces where the disinfectant will be applied will be verified to be safe before application. Exterior and interior contact points on the vehicle will be disinfected during the initial intake of the vehicle, and will be again disinfected at the time the vehicle is ready to return to the customer.
