At Thomas Industrial Coatings, safety comes first

Our stance on safety is simple – it’s the single most important aspect of what we do. It’s more important than the client. It’s more important than the equipment. It’s more important than any profit margin. We believe our company to be a family. Protecting each and every member to the fullest is the only way we’ll have it.

Employee involvement is critical to a successful and safe work environment. That’s why Thomas Industrial Coatings has worked hard to create a safety culture that protects, educates and empowers every member of our team. We maintain a comprehensive Safety Management System that is reviewed and modified on a regular basis by our Management Team. A Site-Specific Safety & Health Plan is developed by Project Management for each job – then communicated to each employee. Everyone on a Thomas project also has the authority to stop work in the event an unsafe behavior or condition is identified.

In order to ensure the protection and livelihood of all who work with us, we require that all of our employees undergo rigorous safety and health training. This includes:
