Procedures and Maintenance
Tire and rim servicing can be extremely dangerous and are to be preformed only by trained professionals that meet OSHA's safety requirements. Employers must provide all the necessary training for tire inflation including installation and removal of rim wheels from the vehicle and knowledge of standing outside the trajectory during inflation and inspection. Not only is neglecting to use restraining devices, such as safety racks and cages a violation, it may also lead to serious injuries and fatalities.
