Safety is a Leadership Commitmentp

Proactive and engaged leadership is the cornerstone of our safety culture.

Our Safety Vision

Continuously grow a world class Safety Culture by developing leaders, sharing best practices and incorporating analytics in our management and operational processes.

Safety Philosophy

  • Every Accident is Preventable
  • Do the Small Things Right & The Big Things Follow
  • Safety is Leadership – Leaders have the courage to intervene and empower their employees to do the same

Thompson University, Safety & Leadership Training

Safety Training & Leadership Development begin on day one. In addition to job-specific education, all new hires attend Safety training which sets the expectations to work safe for our Thompson Teammates and our families. Additionally, all Thompson supervisors go through our foundational leadership course which includes 2 days of in-depth HR, Quality, and behavioral safety training. Foundational leader training also includes an OSHA 30 hour certification, and we’re also invested in growing our next generation of leaders. Our Mentorship Program matches our young professionals with senior mentors who provide coaching & accountability for setting and achieving personal and professional goals

Safety Analytics

At Thompson we use leading indicators and advanced analytics to proactively manage risk, reduce incidents and make better business decisions. Field employees utilize our mobile safety data collection platform to “find, fix and report” on safe at-risk practices. Data is collected, trended, and reported in real time via our Project safety Dashboard.

Best Practice Sharing & Safety Alerts

We pride ourselves on being a learning organization. We are not afraid of assessing our performance after the fact – good or bad. Every event is an opportunity to learn and an opportunity to share and educate our teammates. Lessons are corrected and shared via Root Cause and Best Practice Alerts.

Safe Driving
In addition to our safety observation program we use a driver monitoring system, GeoTab, to monitor, track and manage safe and unsafe driving behaviors.
