Safety Rule of the Month - History Archives

March 2019

"Safety is an integral part of our operation, and we are inalterably committed to the safety of our patrons and employees. The practice of safety and the effectiveness of safety measures and safety devices depends upon the cooperation of employees. Safety is not a one-man proposition; it is a responsibility that must be shared by all. The ultimate results, however, depend largely upon the efforts of each individual."

Instructions to Porters, Attendants and Busboys, The Pullman Company, 
August 1, 1952
