Moving Safety Beyond the Workplace, featuring Tony Crow


Tony Crow shares his experience and safety message in the strongest way imaginable by showing the direct, personal and truly unfortunate result of acting in an unsafe manner. He talks about his work, safety work habits and a serious off-the-job injury. His story will cause attendees to pause and consider the consequences of unsafe acts. This injury resulted in blindness but has given him some special insights on life and why safety must be a critical piece of everything we do on- and off-the-job.

Technical Tour: Soldier Field and SAFETY!* - NEW

9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.


Learn from the Soldier Field Team how they approach safety and maintain a 1.6 million square foot stadium and 98 acre campus that hosts over 220 events a year.


You will start your tour in the back of house spaces of the stadium and see the operations and locker room areas. From there, you will also see the event spaces and learn how the stadium turns the building over from an event such as a concert or NFL game with 60,000+ in attendance and move right into a wedding, gala or corporate event. All of this is done with safety in mind - it's part of the daily culture at Soldier Field.
