Taking Worker Safety to Next Level at Ford Michigan Central Station
Ford is transforming Michigan Central Station into the centerpiece of a new mobility innovation district in Corktown to shape the future of mobility and transportation. “This is a pivotal project for Ford, for Detroit and for the hundreds of workers that are restoring one of the city’s greatest historic assets,” said Wendy Burkett, Ford’s director of global safety. “The safety of workers is our number one priority and we welcome the opportunity this agreement provides to unite as one team.”
As a level three partnership, the primary goals are specific in scope and will center around safety training with a focus on workers new to the industry. “These construction companies embody the dedication that puts safety and health at the center of the work and they serve as mentors to the other trade contractors on this project,” said MIOSHA Director, Bart Pickelman.
