Repairs division - a million hours without injury

In the last few days U. S. Steel Kosice President George F. Babcoke and Vice President Operations Patrick J. Mullarkey had an informal lunch meeting with a group of selected managers from the Repairs Division, whose employees have just achieved a million hours of work without injury. "We have set high standards in this firm in many areas of our activity, and we are pushing our demands higher and higher. That is not only in product quality, but above all in occupational safety. The success you have achieved deserves acknowledgment," the President told his guests. P. J. Mullarkey thanked the whole team of Division employees for their skill and capability, and the quality of their expertise. "The services you provide are of the highest standard," he stated. "But what needs emphasizing in addition is that you carry them out not only in a reliable and qualified way, but also with maximum respect for the rules of occupational safety."
