BREAKFASTS OVERVIEW

5/14/14 = Workplace Attitudes and How they Affect Injury and Illness Experience”.

Does attitude have any impact on a construction site’s safety record? Of course it does. This presentation will address the huge dividends paid over the course of large construction project when a positive safety attitude was stressed throughout the job. That project was the Lambeau Field expansion of the North and South end zones where the contractor was a signatory to a partnership with the local OSHA office. The site experienced no lost time accidents with almost 400 workers at one time on the project, and 600,000 plus man hours. The positive attitude contributed to a successful OSHA partnership, excellent working relationships with subcontractors, and development of a creative and innovative safety team. Come hear all about it from the risk manager who was in charge on a day to day basis.

Speaker— Jerry Walsh is currently the safety coordinator for the Green Bay Packers. Previously, he was the Corporate Education Manager and a Regional Risk Manager for Miron Construction Co., Inc. who was selected to be the risk manager for the new expansion project at Lambeau Field. He has worked with various electrical contractors before teaming up with Miron Construction Co., Inc. and the Green Bay Packers. Jerry is an OSHA 10 and 30 hour Outreach Instructor for both General Industry and Construction, as well as a MSHA instructor. A former U.S. Navy instructor, a former track/vehicle mechanic with the National Guards 32nd infantry brigade out of Wausau Wisconsin, a former search and rescue pilot for the Civil Air Patrol, he also holds journey-men papers with the state of Wisconsin in the field of Machine repair/ Millwright. He is also an ordained minister and served as a Pastor seventeen years at various churches throughout Wisconsin. He also holds weekend classes on how to build cordwood log cabins.
