Infographic: 5 ways to avoid accidents at your new carwash

Discover how to effectively safeguard your carwash from auto-related accidents.

Personal Injury Help explains how new and veteran owners alike can prepare for and mitigate auto-related accidents that occur at their carwash in the article “Protecting business from auto-related accidents,” featured in Professional Carwashing & Detailing’s May issue.

“As a carwash owner or operator, you know you’re responsible for ensuring the safety of your customers and their vehicles. You also most likely know you can be the target of personal injury and liability claims from customers and other visitors,” reports Personal Injury Help in the article.

The article continues, “You may take steps every day to protect your customers, yourself and your business investment, but no matter how diligent you are, accidents happen. When they do, you need to know how to prove you were not at fault, and therefore not financially responsible.”

Your customers must operate their vehicles at your site just as they would on the road: reasonably, responsibly and lawfully, states Personal Injury Help in the article; and they are expected to be mindful, follow procedures and implement “reasonable care” measures, such as paying attention to pedestrians and other drivers as well as obeying traffic laws.

The article notes how owners and operators can ensure customers are aware of carwash procedures in several ways, including:

  • By posting clear instructions via signs along the path to the entrance and interior of the carwash
  • Through written instructions and liability waivers signed by the customers
  • Via attendants who communicate instructions directly to patrons.

Moreover, the PC&D team created the infographic below to help safeguard your carwash from accidents and injuries on-site.
