Program aims to reduce injury from auto lifts

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A new federal program will attempt to reduce injuries and deaths from operating automotive lifts in Hawaii, Guam, the Northern Marianas and American Samoa.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration says the program is launching next month.

OSHA will conduct random inspections to identify and evaluate hazards of lifts used in the automobile industry, including dealerships, repair shops, gas stations and tire stores.

OSHA Regional Administrator Ken Atha says dangerous risks of automotive lifts can be limited by proper maintenance and effective worker training.
