Committed to a Safe
New York City

Our commitment to the health and safety of our employees, our customers, and the citizens of this great city will continue to be of the highest priority.
Taking Safety Training to the Next Level 

To expand our commitment to the health and safety of our workforce, our President, Domenic Monopoli created and founded The Filco Safety School in 2014.

Located at the company headquarters, this facility regularly hosts smaller safety seminars, every couple of weeks, all year round. The smaller setting allows for team members to be more open in asking questions, and sharing information.

Our weekly training sessions are conducted by an Independent Certified NYS DOT Instructor to ensure a top-notch safe work environment.
