ASCCA What You Need To KnowMay 3, 2016
Cal-OSHA Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) for Small Businesses 
The Labor Occupational Health Program (LOHP) has developed a number of materials and a training program to help small and large businesses create and implement effective workplace Injury and Illness Prevention Programs (IIPP). The IIPP is an important written workplace safety program. View the website at:
There are open-enrollment IIPP courses on May 9 in Pleasanton (flyer) and on May 17 in Stockton (flyer). The course on May 17 in Stockton has an emphasis on heat illness prevention in an IIPP. There are other courses listed here.
Registration is required, and the trainings are free. Register online or in writing to Kelly Chan by email or fax at (510) 643-5698.
Each One Reach One: ASCCA 2016 Membership Drive with Contest and Raffle!
As a member of ASCCA, you understand the importance of strength in numbers. It's what helps ASCCA achieve its core purpose of elevating and uniting automotive professionals, and giving them voice.
Each year, thousands of new bills are introduced in Sacramento, many of which will impact small business owners. Thanks in large part to members like you, we've helped forge important relationships with state policymakers, regulators, and other industry professionals. Leveraging these relationships, ASCCA has been able to weigh in on important legislative discussions in Sacramento that would directly affect your business and your bottom line. But we still need your help!

Self-Driving Cars and the Road Ahead 
Flying cars are still a long way off, but the self-driving car is here! With all of the recent media attention surrounding Google's self-driving car prototype, consumers are understandably excited about the prospect of letting their car serve as their own private driver. But what effects will automated vehicles (AV) have on highway safety? Logically, it would eliminate the danger arising from the distracted driver-those who text and drive, get drowsy at the wheel, struggle to put on their makeup, or perhaps those who have one too many drinks-but can cars, operated by computers, be as reactive as their human drivers?
This is just one of the many questions that the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) addressed at their NHTSA Automated Vehicle Operational Guidance Public Meetings, held April 28 at Stanford University. At the meeting, the NHTSA sought input and information on the roadway scenarios and operational environments that highly automated vehicles will need to address, and the associated design and evaluation processes and methods needed to ensure that AV systems are able to detect and appropriately react to these scenarios. If you were unable to attend the meeting, you can watch it in its entirety here.

ASCCA Code of Ethics - Display it Proudly!
Each member of the ASCCA has agreed to uphold the association's Code of Ethics. The association is encouraging all members to proudly display the Code of Ethics as they demonstrates to the motoring public that your shop holds itself to a high standard. You should be proud of that and display it proudly!
In order to assist you with creating a display, we've made two versions of the ASCCA Code of Ethics available.  The first version (codeofethics_sign_2016.pdf) provides a fillable field in which you can add your shop name at the top. The second version (ASCCA code of ethics.pdf) is the code of ethics with the ASCCA logo at the top of the page. We encourage you to print whichever version you prefer and hang it in your shop.

ASCCA Chapter 24 Big Factor in San Diego Auto Event's Continued Success
In an age where more and more high schools and community colleges have disbanded their automotive training programs, one school in San Diego continues to shine-Cuyamaca College. Each year, they host the popular Automotive Skills Day, featuring activities where college and high school students compete against one another in various automotive repair exercises, and participate in hands-on instruction. Event organizers credit the event's continued success with their close relationship with the local auto repair industry, including ASCCA's very own Chapter 24.
Chapter 24 has donated tens of thousands of dollars over the past several years, which are used to purchase tools that are given to the winners of the various competitions. Thank you Chapter 24 for the partnerships you've made, and the work you all have done in your community to inspire a new generation of automotive professionals!
