Day two of the program will feature OSHA’s Deputy, Stephen Boyd, who will share insight on industry-related rules, regulations and best practices. Spark Underwriters, David Willett will also take the stage Thursday and will address workman’s compensation and the rising cost of business insurance. Collision repairers can expect actionable information that may help lower costs and improve their businesses.
