Safety Partnership Signed for Lambeau Field Expansion

Representatives of OSHA, Miron Construction Co., Inc., and the Green Bay Packers signed the agreement Feb. 27. About 1,600 workers will be involved in the project during the next two years.

The $143 million construction project now under way at the Green Bay Packers’ iconic Lambeau Field will employ about 1,600 workers during the next two years. When completed in June 2013, the Lambeau Field Stadium Improvement Project will have added 6,700 seats, two HD video boards, and two new gates at the stadium. And it will have involved a voluntary partnership among OSHA, general contractor Miron Construction Co., Inc., the Packers, and more than 40 subcontractors to identify and control safety hazards and encourage employee involvement in making safety Job #1 during the work.

Voss, Jr., CEO of Miron Construction; Frank Winingham, Appleton Area director for OSHA; and Mike Cavanagh, program manager for the Wisconsin Occupational Safety and Health Consultation Program (Wis-Con), took part in the signing ceremony on Feb. 27 at the stadium. Miron Construction will implement a site-specific safety and health program that is aimed in part at increasing the number of workers who complete relevant safety training.

The signing took place at the Lambeau Field Atrium's Associated Bank Club Level and was covered by the Green Bay Press-Gazette and WGBA-TV in Green Bay.

The Packers will end their latest stock sale at midnight Feb. 29 after selling at least 263,000 shares at $250 each by Feb. 14, Richard Ryman reported in the Press-Gazette. Buying a share (they included a $25 shipping & handling fee per order) is not tax deductible and confers no benefit in terms of obtaining tickets to games; holders may attend and vote at an annual meeting in July. Owners cannot sell, assign, or transfer shares to anyone except immediate family members.
