Using Your Carwash Branding to Build a Safety Culture

You have taken the time and expense to build a brand and a look for your carwash operations, but it takes a lot of energy and creativity to draw in your intended audience. If you have not taken the time to brand safety into the daily operations, you could be washing money right down the drain. Use the energy you have branding the wash to brand your staff. An engaged and energized staff will help reduce claims, headaches and save you money.
