The construction of the new Tappan Zee Bridge was featured Monday during National Safety Week, an initiative to stop work-related injuries on construction sites.
Workers on the bridge have already put in 6 million hours of work, with the number of reportable incidents well-below the national average.
The safety manager for Tappan Zee Constructors, the group building the new $3.9 billion bridge, says a key to their track record so far is a culture of safety.
To mark the accomplishment, as well as Safety Week, Tappan Zee Constructors officials took reporters and industry leaders on a boat tour of the work site.
The two other projects recognized for National Safety Week are an expressway project outside of Dallas, Texas, and a light rail construction project in Los Angeles.
