About ITS... Safety & Training

We listen, learn and continue to move forward

Experience is a great teacher and the knowledge gained in the various aspects of our operation are passed on to benefit new recruits and veterans alike. We never stop learning, enhancing the skills of our people and our ability to keep our team safe at home and on the road.

Through a team effort and a collaborative approach, we are very effective at the introduction and careful execution of critical safety, maintenance and training programs. We’ve formalized apprentice and mentorship programs to add professional drivers and diesel technicians to our company and the industry at large.

We take action and shape the future for generations to come

Like most companies today, we are taking the necessary steps to reduce our impact on the environment. Regular training and maintenance are key elements in achieving our goals in this regard. We enforce a strict no idle policy, govern speed limits, keep our fleet well maintained and reduce both paper and energy use in our facilities.
