DescriptionThomas Cowperthwaite, Safety Inspector of the Calumet & Arizona Mining Company and their subsidiary companies, spoke before the Mining Club of the Bisbee Y. M. C. A. recently, and gave many pertinent suggestions on accident prevention. A few excerpts from his talk follow: "A Safety Inspector needs all the power he can get. If he is general manager or superintendent he can put any idea he may get into force without bothering to collect data for a long time. The next best thing is to have all the biggest bosses on committees. That way, things wrong can be remedied all the minute." For instance, one afternoon, Mr.Cowperthwaite found three dangerous places in one afternoon. The superintendent was on the commission and ordered the carpenters to go fix that at once. Before the shift was over all three holes were safe. Getting action that quick may have saved three men's lives or prevented bad accidents. That kind of Safety First gets results. 12 p.
