Lamers Bus receives IMG safety award

Posted on March 14, 2012

In recognition of their dedication to one of the basic ideals promoted by the International Motor Coach Group Inc. (IMG), Lamers Bus Lines was presented with the IMG 2012 Safety Award.

The IMG Safety Award was presented to Lamers Bus Lines at the group’s recent Maintenance and Safety Conference in Grapevine, Texas. The award is presented annually to the company within the IMG organization who has demonstrated the highest level of safety throughout their organization. 

“Lamers not only meets the highest level of federal, state and location regulations, but goes above and beyond implementing company safety measures that ensure their employees and customers experience the safest work and transportation experience,” said IMG’s Director of Member Services and Purchasing Mike Mattison.

In Fall 2010, Lamers purchased a driver training simulator in a custom motorcoach to further its driver educational programs. The mobile simulator is designed to give drivers the skills they need to become safer, more confident, and better prepared behind the wheel and become familiar with navigating an up to 45-foot vehicle through traffic, mountains, and inclement weather, while simulating situations that may occur on the road.
