Safety Follows Wisdom monument.

Safety Follows Wisdom -- Twin

There is a marker on US 22 near Zanesville, OH, that is nearly identical to your recently added "Safety Follows Wisdom" marker near Knoxville, TN. It honors the Columbia Cement Division of Pittsburgh Plate Glass for a perfect safety record in 1931, and 18 more subsequent years, with the latest being 1975. I believe the land is now owned by the Quasar Energy Group.

Where safety is concerned, there can never be too many monuments.
