Installations Unit 9 - Engine Servicing

For most routine engine maintenance work it is necessary to search under the particular engine make and model, so this page would be almost endless! The following offer some tips and sources for engine manuals. For most routine servicing, all that is needed is the Owners Manual. The Engine Manual or Engine Service Manual will cost more and be far more detailed.

On-line Resources

 

Here are just a few links to internet sources of safety information:

A wealth of safety information is available at the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (OSH) web site at:

www.ccohs.ca

The Health Canada government site for WHMIS 2015:

http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ewh-semt/occup-travail/whmis-simdut/ghs-sgh/index-eng.php

Other WHMIS 2015 links:

Many more can be found by searching under terms like: WHMIS and SDS

To see actual SDS information it is often easy to go to manufacturers’ or suppliers’ web sites and follow links to their safety data, usually under tabs such as ‘product information’ or ‘technical data’.
