Passage 1: Memo
To: All Employees From: Health and Safety Re: Employees Healt.This is not something that we
have done before, but this year we have compiled a chart of all the health problems for which we
have treated workers over the past 12 months. We have decided that by sharing this information, we
might be able to encourage some of you to take more care in the workplace. A lot of these problems
could be avoided with just a little bit of common sense. While we are glad not to have to treat most
of you for anything serious, and although we do enjoy the pleasure of your company, we would
rather not have to treat any of you for accidents and incidents which are entirely avoidable by
following safety regulations; wearing reinforced boots to protect your toes, wearing safety goggles,
keeping ear plugs with you at all times so you have them when you need them, and above all, we
urge you to wash your hands before eating. Take a look at the chart and you’ll see what we mean.
We’ve also divided the data by sex, so men – don’t let the ladies beat you next year! We are
planning on compiling a table next year, too, so let’s see if we can really cut down those numbers.
