CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio — Shop Floor, a Tire Business-generated online source of stories and video content covering eight topics common to tire shops across North America, is open for business.
The material — which covers balancing; demounting, mounting and inflation; tire repair; safety; TPMS service; training; vehicle lifting; and torque — is intended as an outline of each job to help educate, among others, students in the industry, as well as new and recently hired technicians.
Each topic includes not only the description of the service, but also has an accompanying video that shows a technician performing the particular job.
Each topic is broken down into several sections.
For example, tire repair includes: An introduction to tire repair; How to repair a puncture properly; Staying safe when repairing a tire; Essential tools, materials and equipment for tire repair; and Tire repair: Shining a light on visual inspections.
Shop Floor is free to all Tire Business readers. It can be accessed at tirebusiness.com/shop-floor.
