Safety record not the first

I WOULD LIKE to correct your kudos article in the Jan-Mar issue of the Reporter, titled “Kiewit praises Local 29 [Boston] safety performance.” The article stated that a project at the Brayton Point power plant involving Kiewit and Local 29 marked the first time the OSHA VPP (Voluntary Protection Program) Star Award has been given in New England. However, Black & Veatch Construction Inc. and Local 29 received an OSHA VPP STAR Safety Award in 1999 for a project at the Berkshire power plant.
