At one time two of the largest telephone companies providing telephone service in the U.S. The creeds are after the same purpose, but the wording is different. In 1937 W.T. Wooters a Pennsylvania Bell Telephone Co. general plant manager was giving a safety meeting to his
district plant superintendents. One of his most memorable contributions to telephone service was his safety creed, "No job is so important and no service is so urgent-that we cannot take time to perform our work safely"
In 1939 after a little rephasing it became the AT&T Bell System safety creed. The General System creed came a standard around 1957.
