    Re: Blog hashes out argumentThe admittance of a mistake and no visual/audible damage feels as though OCH is on the right side of the fence.This story highlights the importance of a "call back" system when servicing vehicles to ensure everyone is aware of what is happening. For example, "Ready for oil on Bay 1, ready for start, vehicle oiled…" Using this system has resulted in 0 incidents of this nature in my service bays!
