“On behalf of the Thompson and Lichtner Company, I extend my best wishes and appreciation to all fellow US Veterans.”
– Henry R (Bob) Heywood, (Staff Sgt., Vietnam War)

Many Safety Professionals know people who have lost their lives in workplace accidents. Being in the military is likely one of the most dangerous professions we know. Loved ones passing aren’t easy regardless of the situation. This week we lost a member of our family, Bob Heywood of natural causes. Bob is one of those people who worked his way up from being a janitor to owning the company, an engineering firm established in 1896 in Boston. Safety Professionals know the challenges faced by personnel who are promoted from the ground up, and we diligently help them bridge the gap successfully. So, to all our veterans and the Safety Professionals who help keep everyone safe, in Bob’s words “I extend my best wishes and appreciation to all.”
