Driver Safety Conference

Filco Carting's Safety Seminar

LaGuardia Plaza Hotel

Industry Safety Instructor, Mr. Burr


We conducted Filco Carting’s first safety seminar for all of our drivers, at the LaGuardia Plaza Hotel. In attendance were some of the industry’s experts in safety, including Mr. Randall Burr, an Industry Safety Instructor, to conduct an introduction to Filco Carting's new “Safety Class” program. Mr. Burr discussed topics including Major Offenses, License Status and Changes, Operating Regulations, New Restrictions and Changes. Our drivers learned about The Smith 5 Keys System, including Collision Avoidance and various new resources of information. 

 

The Smith System® Driver Improvement Institute was the nation’s first professional training program for drivers.  Established in 1952 by Harold Smith, it operates on the principle that most collisions are preventable if the right driving habits are learned, practiced and applied consistently.  Since then, millions of drivers throughout the world have benefited from this system.

We thank Mr. Steve Thompson, from Laborers Local Union 108, LIUNA, AFL-CIO, for attending such an important event.
