Helping our employees to work safely. That's a Bethlehem commitment. And we're succeeding. For the third year in a row, a Bethlehem mine has won the coveted Sentinels of Safety Award* as the safest coal mine in the country. The 190 men and women of Mine 25 in our Beth-Elkhorn Division, Jenkins, Ky., worked 332,079 hours in 1980 without a single lost workday injury. That remarkable safety performance won them the 1980 award, the most recent given. We're proud of them. And we're just as proud of the people at Mine 108 of our Marion-Barbour Division in northern West Virginia. They won this top award in 1978 and 1979! At Bethlehem, safety is an integral part of production; the two cannot be separated. Our best defense against injuries and acci dents is a safety-conscious employee. That's why safety education and training play such a vital role at all our operations our mines, our steel plants, our shipyards.
