The City Ground side are two points adrift of safety going into their last six games of the season and Tyson is encouraging his team-mates to think about the effect relegation would have on everyone connected with with club.
"The last time this club was relegated, there were about 20 people made redundant," the seven-goal forward told the Nottingham Evening Post. "We need to think about things like that because it is not just about us.
"It is about the staff at the club, the people who bend over backwards to make sure our lives are comfortable.
"It is sad to think they might be worrying about whether they will be out of a job in the summer or not. Personally it makes me ill thinking about it too much.
"If we were to go down and people were to be made redundant again, it would be like having blood on our hands."
