responsibilities and offers strategies to create and sustain a corporate

first participants, I can attest to the caliber of the SLP and to the
unwavering commitment behind it. Last year, we sent 27 managers to the
program. This year, we intend to send an even larger group. By continuing to
take a leadership position on safety, we are contributing to the elevation of
standards across our entire industry," concludes Mr. Fransham.
