We recently took another step towards improving the safety of everyone here at Thomas Industrial Coatings. On Tuesday, October 9, 16 of our employees engaged in the first round of Defensive Driving training courses. The Safety Council of Greater St. Louis conducted the National Safety Council Defensive Driver training course which helps make everyone on the road safer.
“We have a commitment to safety for all of our employees when they’re on the job-site,” said Don Thomas, founder and president of Thomas Industrial Coatings. “It’s also important that our guys are safe when they’re headed to and from those job-sites. Moving our equipment and workers between projects around the country involves a lot of driving. We do things safely, driving is definitely no exception.”
The four-hour classes are designed to help improve awareness and safe driving habits through defensive driving training. By November 4, all of our supervisors will have completed the defensive driving course. These defensive driving courses are part of our continual efforts to be as safe as we can possibly be.
The first round of participants included Don Thomas, John Bohmer, Ross Boyd, Todd Cook, Andrew Everding, Les Gibson, Andy Hamersen, Steve Kuehler, John Lohkamp, Richard Runyon, Ryan Selsor, Josh Teddleton, Brandon Thomas, Claudia Thomas, Rich Todd and Tony Wheelock. The rest of our supervisors at Thomas Industrial Coatings will soon be following suit.
