Barton Malow Forms Safety Partnership with Indiana Department of Labor (IDOL)

Indianapolis, IN — March 30, 2015 — Barton Malow and the Indiana Department of Labor (IDOL) announced a strategic safety and health partnership at the University of Notre Dame’s Campus Crossroads project.  The Campus Crossroads project is a renovation and expansion of the University of Notre Dame’s Football Stadium, located in South Bend, IN. The project includes construction of more than 750,000 square feet of classroom, research, student facility, digital media, performance, meeting, event and hospitality space making the stadium a year-round hub for academic and student life.

“We’re excited to partner with Barton Malow as they renovate and expand one of Indiana’s top universities,” said IDOL Commissioner Rick Ruble. “By proactively focusing on worker safety and health, together we can protect our valuable workforce while proving safety and quality go hand-in-hand.”

The IDOL’s partnership program embraces collaborative agreements to address critical safety and health issues and ensure safety is a priority from the beginning of a project through its conclusion. The partnership focuses on proactively identifying and correcting workplace safety and health hazards to reduce and eliminate worker injuries and illnesses. As the project construction manager, Barton Malow will proactively engage with and serve as a mentor for all sub-contractors on the jobsite. The project must maintain an aggregate worker injury and illness rate lower than Indiana’s construction industry average.

“Planning for safety from the beginning is how we ensure our employees stay safe on the jobsite,” said Barton Malow President Ryan Maibach. “Zero tolerance for unsafe acts and conditions isn’t just our stated policy; it’s the only way we do business. We’re proud to partner with the Indiana Department of Labor to reinforce this standard.”
