Safety during tyre inflation in motor vehicle repair

Removal, replacement and inflation of tyres is extremely common in motor vehicle repair (around 30 million tyres are replaced in the UK each year), so it may seem a simple task. But it can cause injury and even death.

This leaflet deals specifically with the dangers during tyre inflation – advice on the other hazards can be found in Health and safety in motor vehicle repair and associated industries (HSG261).
