Great Safety Takes Superior Leadership

Safety & Leadership Training

Safety Training begins on day one. In addition to job-specific education, all new hires attend Safety training which sets the expectations to work safely for our Thompson Teammates and our families. Additionally, all Thompson supervisors go through our foundational leadership course which includes in-depth HR, Quality, and behavioral safety training. Foundational leader training also includes an OSHA 30-hour certification.Thompson is also invested in growing our next generation of leaders.

Our Leadership Development Program develops our new leaders within
our organization over many months. A part of this program is a mentorship component that matches our young professionals with senior mentors who provide coaching and accountability for setting and achieving personal and professional goals. This program culminates with a presentation to the corporate executives to propose solutions to real concerns for the organization.


Our commitment to safety is a vital part of our vision.

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 at-risk practices. Data is collected, trended, and reported in real time via our Project safety Dashboard. We also use this information to ensure that our pre-task plans (PTP) capture the job's risks and all team members are aware of the hazards.


Safety isn’t just something we talk about. We live and breathe it every day. It’s our total commitment.

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 Safety 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.
