Safety is our culture

At Thrasher, we promote a safe working environment in the field, at the office and at home. Our employees are trained to work safely and to comply and meet internal goals as well as all of the safety requirements of our clients.

Results…are proof. Our progressive decline in EMR ratings over the past few years is the result of our focus on safety.


Thrasher is a member of VeriForce, PICS, & ISNetWorld
