Safety is a culture that must be continuously nurtured and improved. That is why Townsend continues to expand our Training Department with a goal of providing enhanced training resources for our employees. Tree trimming and line construction are known to be two of the most dangerous jobs in the workplace today. The constant training of employees on safety and best workplace practices is an essential ingredient to the company’s success.
Townsend conducts its training program in a variety of ways. The corporation utilizes two mobile training centers equipped with an indoor theater and multiple training props to simulate onsite activities of our field employees. Still, the principal tool for employee training has been and will remain On-The-Job (OTJ) supervised training. Also, on a quarterly basis, the company brings all its field managers together to analyze past results, review problem areas and discuss new training techniques, industry developments and more.
