Innerbelt Bridge Work Stops for Fall Prevention Stand-Down [Photo Gallery]

Safety leaders from the eastbound Inner Belt Bridge project, along with officials from OSHA, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and others, gathered with workers at the site headquarters for a toolbox talk on fall prevention.

On Tuesday afternoon in downtown Cleveland, the largest civil construction project in Ohio paused to focus on the importance of fall prevention.

As part of this week’s National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction, the main contractor for the $273 million eastbound phase of the George V. Voinovich Bridge project stopped work to discuss fall hazards and fall safety measures.  

Trumbull-Great Lakes-Ruhlin – a joint venture that includes 2013 America’s Safest Companies winner Great Lakes Construction Co. – was awarded the contract to demolish the 55-year-old bridge and build a new five-lane eastbound structure. The eastbound George V. Voinovich Bridge – known locally as the Innerbelt Bridge – is scheduled to be completed in May 2017.
