Distracted Driving

April 6, 2018 | By: ATD

April is designated as Distracted Driving Awareness month by the National Safety Council! Everyone should really take a minute and think about all the different types of distractions you encounter from the time you step into your vehicle, to the time you arrive at your destination each day. It could be as simple as taking a couple seconds to adjust the radio in your car that could make all the difference for your safety.

Be safe out there and remember that motor vehicles are not a place to take risks and become easily distracted. You never know what could happen in just a few short seconds


Q1 Stand Up For Safety

March 23, 2018 | By: ATD

The week of 3/19/18-3/23/18 has been designated as ATD’s Q1 2018 “ATD Stands Up For Safety” week. Four times a year, ATD superintendents and foremen along with the safety department conduct a series of special safety training sessions out on our jobsites on relevant safety and health topics. These special meetings are designed to be more comprehensive and interactive than just a tool box talk. Crew members participate in the meetings, and each ATD employee who attends is given a small token of our appreciation for their ongoing commitment to safety.

In conjunction with National Ladder Safety Month, the topic for Q1 2018’s meetings is “Ladder Safety” and the end of the week we conducted 29 meetings for 125 employees.

Lastly, I thank all the field employees who volunteered their time to complete this necessary task. Complete TEAM effor


We Do Abrasive Blasting

Efforts are moving and shaking on the Coatings side! ATD has been expanding our coatings division. Our coatings division specializes in light to medium industrial environments with high performance application, techniques and coatings. Coatings Division offers out of the box thinking for creative, economical and durable solutions. This comes from our onboard NACE 3 Coatings Inspector, Bob Ruff. He has 35 years of experience in the industrial coatings field. We are able to provide a one stop shop for niche painting solutions. For example, one of our current contracts required a solution to remove 30 year old coatings from ceilings in 17 different buildings. We designed a scope to including a unique abrasive type coupled with vapor blasting. This system greatly reduced costs associated with otherwise elaborate containment and air purification systems.

Happy New Year
