Resumen The objective of this study was to investigate environmental and occupational work practices of automotive repair and refinishing industry in a developing region of Mexico. It involved detailed workplace visits to 41 body shops and six paint suppliers, as well as a survey of shop owners and 24 workers. Information was collected on work practices, level of technology in the shops, use of personal protective equipment, consumption and handling of hazardous chemicals and waste, hazard communication and environmental consciousness. Most shops had little capital, outdated technology for exposure control, poor working conditions, high potential for exposure to hazardous chemicals, and little awareness of environmental and occupational health and safety. Implications of these findings are discussed.
