By following the car care and garage safety tips, you can not only save the brand-new quality of your car but can also save yourself from unwanted injuries and bruises.

Compressed Air Safety
You must always perform thorough inspection on the compressed air hoses before using. When you see a cracked or frayed hose, you must replace them immediately. The frequency of cleaning your car depends on you but when you are ready to clean the dirt and dust from the car parts and from the work area, you must decrease the compressed air to at least 30 psi.
Safety Tip #2
Drain Pan Safety
When you are draining off the engine coolant, make sure you take care of the stuff with some respect. Coolants are quite dangerous to our health and must be disposed off in a sensible manner.
Safety Tip #3
Axle Stand Safety
If for some reason you have to keep your car on axle stands on soft ground or even on hot asphalt, then you will notice that the stands will sink in no time and this will put the car in an unstable condition. So, for your own safety as well as the safety of your car, you must try to cut out a four 3×3 foot sections of a half-inch plywood and make use of them under the axle stands.
Safety Tip #4
Fire Hazard Safety

You must do this even before you start off with the spray job. If you do not do this, you will be surprised and shocked to learn how easily the atomized paint explodes when exposed to an open flame.
Safety Tip #5
Jack Stand Safety
