STATE OF DELAWARE

EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT

PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS, last year ten workers in the State of Delaware were killed, and a much larger number were injured in accidents at their work places; and

WHEREAS, the loss to Delaware in dollars, in wasted skills, and in human bereavement is beyond calculation; and

WHEREAS, it has been demonstrated that none of those tragedies was inevitable; that methods exist or can be devised to eliminate almost all occupational accidents; and

WHEREAS, the President's Conference on Occupational Safety is meeting in Washington March 1-3, where three thousand leaders from all walks of life and all parts of the Nation will seek in concert to discover and devise means to reduce that toll; now

THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby join with the President of these United States in establishing the week of February 28 to March 5 as

JOB SAFETY WEEK

and call on all the citizens of this State to join in making "Job Safety Week" a success and job safety a reality during all the weeks to come.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, J. Caleb Boggs, Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the said State to be hereunto affixed at Dover this twenty-sixth day of February in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and sixty and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and eighty-fourth.

(GREAT SEAL)
