SAFETY MESSAGE AND BEST WISHES FROM PLANT MANAGER
"During the past year, employees have made a concerted effort to improve our safety performance. I am delighted to
report that these efforts have resulted in significant gains.
In November, the plant received its 7th Board of Directors Award for working 2.3 million manhours on the job without a
lost work day.
"In December, the Safety and Fire Protection Division completed an extensive two-week safety survey. The plant received
a "Good" rating which is a significant improvement over the S & F ratings of 1975 and 1976. Survey Engineer, Bob
Christopher, was particularly complimentary about the substantial progress that has been made in upgrading our work prac
"This was gratifying since the basis for a sound safety program is the diligent adherence to safety rules and good work
"While improvements have been noteworthy, we cannot afford to become complacent. Much remains to be accomplished
and I urge each one to continue the same fine effort during 1978.
"Off the job safety shows a modest improvement but remains a source of concern. In the coming year, let's take safety
just as seriously at home as we do on the job.
"Christmas is a special time of the year. The blessings we have received are many. May the joys of this season have a special
meaning to you and your loved ones. Merry Christmas and a prosperous, safe New Year."
