Project Specific Loss Exposures and Controls
Scope of Proposed Operations: This project will be under a Contractor controlled insurance program. Please see Exhibit J attached to this Safety and Health plan. Along with Exhibit J; Code Reds NFPA 241 plan, and the RAM plan will also be attached.
The proposed 212 Stuart Street Residences project is located on an 8,800 square-foot parcel of land in the Bay Village neighborhood of Boston. The Project site is lined to the west by the Church Street plaza, a pedestrian thoroughfare, and beyond by the residential South Cove Plaza, which contains two mid-rise brick and masonry towers, composed of one- and two-bedroom apartments restricted to elderly and disabled households. The limestone and concrete Motor Mart parking garage is located to the North across Stuart Street. The site shares a property line with the pre-cast concrete Revere Hotel and above-grade parking garage to the east. A series of brick townhomes face the Project site across Shawmut street to the south.
This residential project includes the construction of a new 22-story cast-in-pace concrete building containing approximately 128 residential units with a mix of studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. The total overall project square footage is approximately 146,000 square-feet with ground floor entry lobby and basement back of house spaces. The foundation excavation will be approximately 20’ below existing grade and will supported by sheet piles, whalers, and internal cross lot bracing. The building structure is composed of a cast in place concrete with a glass window wall and a precast concrete facade. The proposed project roof is to be projected to be constructed of concrete construction with a half-floor mechanical penthouse integrated into the design of the north elevation. Adjacent to the mechanical penthouse on the southern side of the roof will be an outdoor amenity deck for use by the residents of the building. This space will be designed to be desirable to a diverse range of residents and will be a dedicated area for social gathering and relaxation. The southern exposure will allow for a variety of plants and other features that will make the space attractive and comfortable. The Project includes many important features that were also included in the previously proposed project, including:
The overall duration of this project is approximately 26 months
Purpose: The purpose of this Site-Specific Safety and Health Program is to illustrate Consigli’s approach to identifying project specific hazards and controls and how said risk is managed through a comprehensive Safety and Health Program.
S.A.F.E.: Staying Accident Free Every Day is the Safety Mission that forms the very foundation of the Consigli Safety Culture. The S.A.F.E. mission, which is supported by technology, (Predictive Solutions internal auditing instrument which identifies and defines leading indicator related information); Leadership (Empowering our team members to assure safe projects); Humanization (Protect the ones you love by protecting yourself); Jobsite Gym (Morning warm-ups, stretch and flex); Training (Integrating sub-contractors into the Consigli Safety Culture); and Lean (nothing hit the ground), is the driving force behind Consigli’ s drive to our vision – ZERO. ZERO is the philosophy that all accidents are preventable, and that no accident is acceptable. The S.A.F.E. mission is the guiding force to achieving the Consigli Safety Vision which is ZERO.
Post Incident Review: Any incident that results in a recordable injury will require a post incident review. The worker who was injured along with their foreman/Safety Personnel/PM/Sup/etc. will need to fill out Appendix section R (Superintendent Report) and attend this meeting. At this meeting they will re-emphasize their commitment to safety, determine chronology of events, identify contributing factors, identify root cause, provide improvement plan to prevent reoccurrence and discuss disciplinary actions taken (if any). Findings from this meeting will be shared/disseminated with all contractors on site to prevent reoccurrence.
Substance Abuse: As a condition of employment, ALL PERSONNELL on this project are required to submit to a urinalysis test for determination of the presence of illegal substances. A positive result will disqualify the applicant for employment on this project. (See substance abuse testing program at the end of this document)
IAQ (indoor air quality): This project is all new construction so an IAQ will not be necessary. If tenants occupy the building before construction complete and IAQ may be utilized.
If this is the case, the air will be tested for typical indicators such as but not limited to temperature, relative humidity, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, dust particulates and VOC’s (volatile organic compounds). Monitoring (frequency/duration) will be done in accordance with a written IAQ plan provided by a Certified Industrial Hygienist. This plan will ensure that adjoining areas have not been contaminated during abatement, demolition, and construction. Fire rated 6 mil poly barriers will be set up between any work areas and occupied spaces prior to the start of any work. Negative air machines will also be used to create a negative air flow from the occupied space to ensure that no dust and debris enter an occupied area. All equipment used on the inside to the building will be equipped with a scrubber or be of tier 4 type. Constant Co monitoring will be required if combustible engine is operated indoors. Negative air machines will also be used to create a negative air flow into the workspace to ensure that no dust and debris enter non-construction areas. Kleen sweep will always be used whenever sweeping is required. HEPA Vacs will be the only type vacuums allowed on site. Engineering controls will be taken to eliminate dust on site.

4. All road plates the will be in pedestrian walkways will be slip resistant.
Demolition: There is existing power for the parking lot shack that will be disconnected by Eversource prior to demolition and excavation. Prior to the start of demo operations, the contractor performing demo will confirm, in writing that all utilities leading into the area have been made safe. The electrician will disconnect and lock out all electrical, the plumber will do the same with any plumbing lines, and the HVAC subcontractor will do the same on the HVAC piping and duct work. Lock out tag out will be reviewed during the pre-construction safety meetings to assure disconnect and responsibility for protection of existing utilities is safe for any construction activities to commence. In spaces where some electrical or mechanical must remain live, a color coding system will be utilized for easy identification of live utilities that must stay active and utilities that must be removed. Any and all utilities spray painted Red are not to be touched and or need to be protected during all operations. Utilities spray painted Green are to be removed as part of the selective demolition process only after lock-out/tag-out has been confirmed and utilities tested. If any utilities are unmarked, they shall be considered live. The demo contractor will be responsible for completing CCC demo checklist prior to the start of any work in their target areas. During demolition and construction activities all personnel will wear all required protective equipment. Engineering controls will be used for any activity which may create dust.
Fall Protection: All workers exposed to a fall of 6′ or greater shall be protected by guardrails safety nets or personnel fall arrest systems. This include, but is not limited to, steel erection, roofing, scaffold erection and dismantling, overhand brick laying and pre-cast concrete related work. Wire guardrails will be used for all perimeter and shaft protection. Holes greater than 2” will be covered with acceptable material (3/4 plywood ½ steel) which will be secured and marked hole (cover must be able to withstand four times the intended load). Covers will stay in place until the hole/penetration has been filled. Building perimeters will be protected with some form of fall protection if fall is greater them 6 feet. Cable guard rail system (if used) with turnbuckles to be installed for all straight runs and any straight run over 100 feet. Holes greater than 2” will be covered with acceptable material (3/4 plywood ½ steel) which will be secured and marked hole (cover must be able to withstand four times the intended load). Covers will stay in place until the hole/penetration has been filled. At no time are cross braces on scaffold allowed to be used as fall protection. The use of safety Monitors is prohibited.
Work on Ladders: All work on step ladders/straight ladders will be done correctly per manufacturer’s recommendations. Any worker who is exposed to a fall greater than the height of their work on the ladder will be required to tie off. Step ladders will not be used as a form of access to a walking /working level, also all straight ladders will be tied of when installed for use. Only ladders with a rating Type 1A or 1AA will be allowed on Consigli projects.
Roof Work: Before any work is to begin on the roof it must be determined what sections of the roof will be worked on. A method of fall protection will be implemented at that time. (100% tie off, guard rails, flagging etc. the use of safety monitors is not allowed) Holes greater than 2” will be covered with acceptable material (3/4 plywood ½ steel) which will be secured and marked hole (cover must be able to withstand four times the intended load). Covers will stay in place until the hole/penetration has been filled with duct or Pipe riser which extends above the deck.
Scaffold and elevated work platforms/Material Hoist: All scaffolds/material hoist supported frame, pipe staging and baker staging will be inspected daily before each shift by a competent person designated by each individual contractor who will be using it. It will be documented on Inspection tags located at the stair tower/access point to each section. if installed a scaffold/material hoist inspection checklist will be completed prior to the beginning of each shift and filed in the site office. This will be completed by the designated person from each individual contractor. They must complete an inspection every day the scaffold/material hoist is used by his/her employees. A scaffold inspection guide will be provided to each designated person (upon request) by Consigli Construction to aid them with their inspection. All contractors who will erect scaffolds will provide CCC with certification/Qualification of scaffold erection training as well as an erection/dismantling plan. Fall protection is required 100% during erection/dismantling. Peery bakers are not allowed on this site. Overhead protection will be provided for all access points to any buildings located under any form of scaffolding/material hoist.
Aerial Lifts/Scissor lifts: Area and ground conditions in the intended work area will be inspected for overhead power lines underground structures/sink holes, covers or any other unsafe condition which cause an unsafe incident. Aerial lift platforms/scissor lifts will be inspected daily before each shift by a competent person designated by each individual contractor who will be using it, which will be documented on Inspection tags for each individual piece which will be filed in the site office. All contractors who will be performing work from an aerial lift will show documented proof of training for all workers who will be using the lift. Steel plates or equipment mats will be placed on the ground above any utility/ steam tunnel/underground vault if there will be Aerial lifts operating on them. Workers will be tied off at all times when using an aerial lift!!
Global Harmonization: All Materials and chemicals used on-site will have SDS provided before being brought onsite.
- SDS sheets on file in Consigli Construction’s Site Safety Plan
- SDS sheets shall be readily accessible.
Fire Protection: A temp stand pipe will be run through the core of the building and pressurized per conditions set forth by Code Red who has been hired as the consultant to write the project’s “Fire Protection Plan”. The project will also utilize a temp fire alarm system with pull stations and AV devices located at the stairwells. This plan will be incorporated into the SSSP. The hot work permit program will be implemented for all hot work to be conducted on the project on a daily basis. This will be coordinated through the CCC as well as Fire Department (if needed). All hot work will stop one hour before the regular end of the day work stoppage. 20lb extinguishers of ABC rating will be positioned accordingly through the project. Flammables will not be stored inside the building or left overnight on the scaffold. All combustible or flammable materials will be stored in an appropriately rated lockable cabinet located no closer than 50 feet from the nearest structure. Fire department access will be maintained and kept open for emergency responders. Workers will comply with NFPA 241 fire protection plan and NFPA hot work permit requirements at all times.
Electrical: The electrician will be responsible for all temp power and any temp lighting that may be needed. They will coordinate all lock out tag out procedures with the buildings facility’s department to make safe the work area before demolitions begins. There are no overhead power lines in any of the intended work areas. All electrical tools, cords and equipment must be in good working order. To that end, all electrical tools and components must be visually checked on a daily basis. Any tools with damaged cords or damaged cords must be taken out service immediately. All cords must be equipped with a ground pin, flat three wire cords are not allowed. SJO and SJT or other similarly rated cords only shall be used. Cords must be 12 gauge or better. The electrician will be responsible for all temp power and any general temp lighting that may be needed. Subcontractors will be responsible for task lighting in the event that lighting above the OSHA standard is required for a particular work task. The electrician will coordinate all lock out tag out procedures. All temporary power for the project will be installed on protected and dedicated circuits with 100% GFCI protection. GFCI will be tested by the electric contractor to assure proper function with a log book filed with CCC monthly. No live electrical work will be conducted.
Crane : This project will be utilizing a Potain MR405 tower crane which will be located in the adjacent lot, northeast of the building. All lifting operations will require that the operator and any involved contractors follow the steps listed below as well as in CCC Crane Safety policy
1.Need to assure an assembly/disassembly director for the tower crane erection and dismantling. The director must be competent and qualified to direct both assembly and disassembly.
2.All Hoisting equipment will have an up to date 3rd party inspection certificate with the equipment which will be copied and filed in the office trailer.

4. All workers working with the crane shall have all appropriate signalmen/rigging qualifications.
5. All equipment operators will be required to have in their possession all appropriate licensing and training as required by OSHA and the State of Mass.
6. NCCCO certification will be required for all crane operators who will be operated on site along with an evaluation letter provided by the owner for the operator and the crane to be used on site.
7. All underground vaults and existing utilities will be marked before any excavation can begin as well as before any crane is set up.
8. Cribbing for outriggers shall be at minimum 3X the area width of outrigger floater. (Cranes only)
9. Operators must also be certified by their company to operate the specific crane that will be on site.
Confined Space: A written plan will be needed to work in any tanks/vaults and crawl spaces during this project which have been designated permit confined spaces by CCC, this plan must include air monitoring.
** Please review chapter 21 for additional details. **
Designated First Aid Plan: All injuries must be reported to Consigli Site Safety Manager, regardless of severity. CCC will then report all injuries to the Consigli Safety Director and Claims Manager. A fully stocked first aid kit and blood borne pathogens kit shall be maintained on the project site. Only properly trained personnel will administer first aid. A list of first aid trained personnel shall be posted in the office.
** Please review chapter 1 and 27 for additional details. **
Steel Erection: None anticipated, however because this is a cast in place concrete structure, all workers working above 6ft must be protected from fall hazards by utilizing PFAS, guardrails, or wire rope guard rails. Any subcontractor associated with the structural steel erection will comply with the following. Provide proof of training of subpart R training as well as fall protection training for all workers will be required before start. Consigli will release documentation when column footings reach 75% of breaking strength. Once this has been achieved, CCC will furnish to the steel erector the “approval to begin steel erection form”.
The steel erection sub will be required to submit a detailed erection sequencing plan that illustrates crane locations and capacity of cranes at those locations. Fall protection will be determined for connectors after pre-construction meeting with sub is held. Fall protection will be required at 6’, at all times during steel erection
Once decking is complete and all required fall protection is installed, CCC will walk the area with the steel erection subcontractor. Provided all required elements of fall protection are in place, CCC will complete and give a copy of the “custody of fall protection” form to the steel erection subcontractor. Maintenance and overall responsibility of the fall protection system will fall to CCC.
Materials management, getting materials into and out of the project, will be a challenge that needs to be adequately planned. An Activity Hazard Analyses shall be done on all materials that will be removed and lowered during demolition.

Environmental Emergency Contact and Management Response
Consigli’s Identified Emergency Response Subcontractor;
Name: Cyn Environmental Services, Inc. (781)341-1777
Review of any soils reports shall be conducted before excavation operations start. An initial soil pre-characterization was performed by Haley and Aldrich for this site. Please refer to this document for more information on the initial soil testing. The soil pre-characterization determined that lead, arsenic, and PCBs and was present in the soil which will require a RAM plan to be established and submitted to the DEP prior to excavating starting. Appropriate dust control monitoring will also be required. Workers involved in excavation work will need to have lead awareness training prior to starting. Haley & Aldrich plans to conduct additional soil sampling during the site pre-clearing activities to be conducted by Welch. Additional testing requirements typically vary depending upon the receiving facilities proposed by the Contractor, and the Contractor needs to communicate these requirements to the Owner’s LSP. Haley & Aldrich will conduct this testing after the requirements are communicated by the Contractor. Subcontractors must conduct exposure assessments for personnel that will be working in or near the contaminated soils.
Once the RAM plan is submitted it will be a separate tab within this site specific safety manual.
Lead Paint: All paint located on the small existing structure exterior/interior will be classified as containing lead. Consigli workers may need to disturb this paint by drilling, sawing, demo, fastening, or carpentry. In doing so they will use saws, drills, screw guns, impact wrenches, sawzalls, hand wrenches, ads, crowbars, hammers, and other hand tools. Consigli Construction does posses historical data to show that drilling, sawing, light demo, installation of hangers, hanging sheetrock, fastening, and carpentry do not put the employee above the action level. Despite this additional monitoring will be done. An exposure assessment will be done for any task on painted surfaces prior to the work taking place. This does not mean that lead could not still be found in/on other surface/areas, caution must be used when working and if any workers identify any potentially hazardous substances then they should stop and notify their supervisor immediately. If at any time workers will need to work on the areas mentioned above, they will need to obtain Lead Awareness training.
- National Primary Ambient Air Quality Standard as promulgated by the US Environmental Protection Agency and as referenced by the MassDEP, the acceptable limit for the project for fugitive dust concentration at the perimeter is considered to be a maximum 24-hour time weighted average (TWA) permissible concentration of 150 micrograms per cubic meter (µg/m3) and a real time 2-hour average of 200 µg/m3. Perimeter dust monitoring will be required to comply with the National Primary Ambient Air Quality Standard and the MassDEP/MCP requirements.
Asbestos: IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ALL SUBCONTRACTOR FOREMEN TO REVIEW THE HAZARDOUS MATERIAL REPORT WITH THEIR WORKERS. A copy of the hazardous Material report will be on site at all times and available to anyone request it. This does not mean that asbestos could not still be found in other areas. Caution must be used when working and if any workers identify any potentially hazardous substances, then they should stop and notify their supervisor immediately, who in turn, will notify the CCC Superintendent.
Asbestos has been found in locations involving Various roofing material. The complete table and “List of Asbestos-Containing Materials, Quantities, and Locations” can be found with the hazardous material report. This list and complete Hazardous Materials Report will be available on site all times. If at any time a worker come across a material, he/she cannot confirm as asbestos free or was previously hidden behind a wall they shall notify their supervisor immediately. All asbestos containing material will be fully removed by a licensed and regulate contractor under an asbestos removal plan which must be submitted and approved, all abatement work will be completed by a licensed Asbestos abatement contractor. All disposals will be done in compliance with State and Federal Regulations. Any worker who discovers any suspect material which cannot be confirmed as non-asbestos containing based on the Hazardous Materials Report shall immediately notify CCC superintendent who will then secure the area (if needed) and have the suspect material tested and treated as needed. Clearances will be provided to Consigli by WHCC Industrial hygienist prior to any workers entering the area.
Polychlorinated Biphenyl’s (PCBs): Hazardous Materials report has been prepared by the building owner and is available for review at any time. Based on SWA observations as well as information provided by the owner, no materials or substrates being impacted within the project work area are considered to be suspect for PCBs. At no time shall a worker disturb any material he/she can not readily identify. If they come across a material he/she cannot confirm as PCB free, they shall notify their supervisor immediately. If PCB’s are found in existing finishes which test for more than 50 ppm will be considered PCB containing material and will be disposed of in accordance with all local, state and federal regulations.
Light ballast may be found to contain PCB’s, All PCB containing material shall be removed and disposed of in accordance with all local, state (MEMEP Special waste management rules 06-096-CMR 400) and federal regulations and be coordinated with WHCC
A hand wash station will be established and maintained for the project duration
Mercury: All fluorescent lamps/thermostats are presumed to contain mercury vapor, which is a hazardous substance. Mercury-containing lamps associated with fluorescent light fixtures in areas designated to be renovated will be treated accordingly. All florescent bulbs removed during renovation will be collected, stored properly on site and giving to WHCC so as to be recycled or disposed of properly.
Freon/Glycol: All Freon/Glycol materials will be removed from equipment and stored per manufacturer’s recommendations before it is disturbed. All workers who will be working with the above-mentioned materials must provide CCC with certifications or qualifications. If not re-used, a disposal manifest will be provided to CCC.
Silica: Any activity which can produce silica dust will use engineering controls to keep dust to a minimum. There will be no dry cutting of any masonry material allowed; if water can not be used then a dustless vacuum system consisting of a HEPA dustless vacuum system will be used in conjunction with an exposure assessment if table 1 cannot be complied with. Prior to the project going full scale an exposure assessment of a worker grinding ,demolition and cutting masonry while using HEPA system will be done so as to establish the silica exposure level if water cannot be used to eliminate or table 1 complied with. No respirators will be issued to CCC workers without the express consent of the Consigli Safety department. Nuisance mask like an N95 if used will be on a voluntary basis and at no time will these types of mask be issued to the workers. Any activity which can produce silica dust will use engineering controls to keep dust to a minimum. A written exposure plan must be developed for all silica producing tasks that clearly defines the following:
1) A description of the tasks in the workplace that involve exposure to respirable crystalline silica.
2) A description of the engineering controls, work practices, and respiratory protection used to limit employee exposure to respirable crystalline silica for each task.
3) A description of the housekeeping measures used to limit employee exposure to respirable crystalline silica.
4) A description of the procedures used to restrict access to work areas, when necessary, to minimize the number of employees exposed to respirable crystalline silica and their level of exposure, including exposures generated by other employers.
Mold: Mold issues are not anticipated to be prevalent on this project, however if mold is discovered Consigli’s mold remediation policy will be implemented and followed.
Noise: Noise exposure will also be a concern, so all deliveries must be coordinated with CCC Superintendent to limit their impact on the surrounding areas. Normal working hours will be between 7am and 5pm; any contractor who may need to work late must first seek approval from the CCC Superintendent. Interior work will take place between 7pm -3am. Noise levels will be monitored if high levels of noise are found to exist or could be expected to assure that noise levels do not exceed acceptable OSHA levels. Consigli permissible noise policy and procedures will be followed.
Equipment issues: All operators will be required to have in their possession all appropriate licensing and training as required by OSHA and the State of Mass. All safety devices and warning alarms must be in good working order and all leaks are to be repaired immediately. All equipment will be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations for safe usage and have its operator’s manual as well as an extinguisher with it at all times.
Exposure to the Visitors, Staff and Students: During all phases of this project the building will be unoccupied. Access will be limited to the areas of the building in which work is taking place. Some areas of project will be opened for construction at different times; this plan must be followed by all workers. Any means of access/emergency egress leading to or from the building which finds itself under any type of work will be provided with overhead protection. At no time is any worker allowed to enter any of the buildings in which they are not scheduled to work in… Non-fraternization with staff, visitors or students will be stressed with all subcontractor personnel during orientations.
Adjacent Property: All steps will be taken to limit the effects of the project on the surrounding community. Special attention will be paid to the access point of each building so as not to impede access. An approved BTD Construction Management Plan is available upon request.
Exposure to Street Traffic: All deliveries will be made at a designated location unless otherwise directed by Superintendent. Their will be exposure to live vehicular traffic and police details will be used when required. All speed limits will be obeyed, and deliveries will be made as to not coincide with other scheduled deliveries. All traffic control signage (if needed) will meet CCC and town requirements before being installed. Coordination with CCC as well as its police will be required when any equipment will be set up/used in the street/parking lot. Fire department access will be maintained and kept open for emergency responders.
Utility Exposures: All utilities entering the site will be marked prior to the start of demolition. Written notification of this work will be provided to CCC prior to commencement of Demolition work.
Planning: The project team as well as CCC safety department will meet with each subcontractor, before they start to review their Site-Specific Safety and Health Program and all project specific Job Hazard Analyses. The project team shall be an integrated mix of owner, architect, engineer and Consigli Construction personnel. If, after reviewing programs and meeting with the individual subcontractor, the team is satisfied with the risk control direction, they will be permitted to begin work.
Additional Controls: Prior to stat of any work, all personnel involved in the project, including project managers must be:
1. Trained and orientated by Consigli Construction. Stickers will be issued and displayed on hard hats
2. All workers will provide Consigli with an OSHA 10 card.
3. All worker will complete mandatory drug screening.
The SDS sheets associated with any hazardous substances to be used will be maintained by the superintendent in a marked three ring binder.
Site Safety Meetings will take place at the beginning of the project and at least once every week thereafter. These meetings will consist of toolbox talks with Consigli Construction Co., Inc. personnel on site. Sub-contractors will be responsible for their own safety meetings. Superintendent will complete a daily site safety walk to identify and correct potential hazards.
All emergency telephone numbers will be posted in the superintendent’s office and throughout the site.
Safety Spot Recognition Plan: The purpose of this plan is to instantly recognize workers “on the spot” for working safely and to reward those workers immediately. This will assist CCC reduce the complacency of workers on all projects. Members from the CCC and owner project team (Supers, PM, APM, PE,OPM, Architect, Owners, etc..) will be provided with 5$ Dunkin Donut gift cards prior to their walk on site.

Substance Abuse Testing Program
Consigli Construction Company Inc. (CCCI), and all subcontractors (“Parties”) to the CCCI Contractor Controlled Insurance Program(CCIP) for the major construction project at Archer/ Donahue will participate in a Drug-Free Workplace Program, (the “Program”) which states that the use of illegal drugs or the abuse of alcohol, prescription or controlled substances on or off duty by persons working on/employed, or seeking employment, on this CCCI project, is inconsistent with a safe, healthy and productive work environment.
This Substance Abuse Program (“the Program”) is established by CCCI in response to the directive as recited above and supersedes any pre-existing ·programs.
CCCI project managers on the project covered by the CCIP will require that this Program be applied to all Contractor-employed personnel working on the project site and to all applicants for such positions.
The intention of this Program is to establish the 212 Stuart Street Residences project as a drug and alcohol free workplace with due regard for the personal privacy interests of project employees. It is not the intention of CCCI project managers to intrude on off-duty activities of project employees away from the project site, unless those activities have a job-related impact. The circumstances permitting alcohol and drug testing on the project have been carefully defined. The CCCI project managers will retain oversight over the Program and will monitor test procedures for consistency and policy compliance.
The Parties acknowledge and agree on the importance of appropriate education, assistance, and treatment for all employees to combat the potential or actual influence of illegal/controlled drugs and alcohol. The Parties therefore encourage the utilization of the educational, assistance and treatment programs which have been established by Unions and/or Contractors as an important component of the overall Substance Abuse Program on Project sites.
The CCCI Construction Substance Abuse Program establishes minimum standards of testing on a consistent, standardized basis for the safety, productivity and economy of all parties and personnel working on this project. · The Program will apply to all project workers, employees and applicants for employment on this covered project site and to all project Contractors at all tiers. The Construction Manager CCCI will regularly review with all Parties concerned the effective implementation and enforcement of the Program, and will require appropriate action by any and all Parties who are not fully committed to and involved in the application of the Program.
This Program shall be subordinate to the Department of Transportation Regulations or any other federal or state drug testing mandates which shall prevail and apply only to those classes of employees and applicants subject to the mandatory drug test regulations currently in effect, as amended or established in the future by the Federal Highway Administration, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Research and Special Programs Administrative of the Department of Transportation or any other federal or state agency with appropriate jurisdiction.
I. 212 Stuart Street Residences PROJECT WORKERS/JOB APPLICANTS
1. Prior to commencing work, all 212 Stuart Street Residences Project workers, and job applicants for positions on the Project will be required to satisfactorily complete a drug test, unless such applicant provides acceptable documentation that he/she has tested drug free within the preceding six months by a NIDA/SAMSHA certified laboratory. Specimens will be collected during in-processing on the Project site or at a designated off-site location and tests will be conducted in accordance with Section III, herein and the Project Substance Abuse Prevention Program Implementation Procedure. Applicants who report to the in-processing site who display reasonable cause to suspect they may be impaired by alcohol may be subject to alcohol testing as set forth in Section III.
2. If the point of collection (POC) test results are inconclusive, the applicant will not be permitted access to the Project site, until test results have been verified in accordance with Section III-2. If the POC test results are proven negative, the employee will be paid for orientation time as described below and will be paid straight time hours for the missed work on the 212 Stuart Street Residences Project, provided the employee is not referred to or is not engaged on an alternate work assignment while test results are pending. If the applicant tests positive, he or she will be barred from this 212 Stuart Street Residences construction project. However, such applicants shall be paid two hours of straight time for participating in the orientation program. If participation in the orientation program requires more than two hours of the applicant’s time, such applicant shall be paid a maximum of four hours of straight time. There shall be no pyramiding of orientation time and missed work payments under this section.
3. Any applicant or conditional employee barred from this 212 Stuart Street Residences project under Section I-2 may be considered for reemployment on this project provided the employee satisfactorily completes a drug test conducted by a NIDA/SAMSHA certified laboratory or an approved drug rehabilitation program at the employee’s expense not less than sixty days following the initial disqualification. Upon the successful completion of such a program, the applicant will be eligible for Project employment providing, as a condition of continuing employment, the employee voluntarily agrees in writing to submit to substance testing, at the 212 Stuart Street Residences project manager’s request, for a period of six months.
4. Refusal on the part of any applicant to comply with the testing procedure will disqualify the applicant from consideration for employment on this CCIP until such time as the applicant certifies, in writing, a willingness to comply with this Program
II. ACTIVE EMPLOYEES
1. Disciplinary Rules: This 212 Stuart Street Residences project does recognize that employees have a right to privacy and that any adverse action taken against an employee for off-duty conduct shall take into account the employee’s right to privacy and the impact of the employee’s conduct on his/her job performance and job site safety. The 212 Stuart Street Residences Project’s disciplinary rules for drug related conduct will be as follows:
- Possession of illegal drugs on the job or in a job status – Permanent bar from the project.
- Use of illegal drugs on the job or in a job status – Permanent bar from the project
- Selling, aiding and abetting the sale or conspiring to sell illegal drugs or prescription drugs on the job or conviction for such activity off the job -Permanent bar from the project
- Bodily system presence of illegal drugs or alcohol on testing at a limit specified herein on the job -Immediate bar from the project. The employee may be considered for reemployment on the 212 Stuart Street Residences Project after sixty days and certification as drug or alcohol-free as confirmed by a NIDA/SAMSHA licensed laboratory or an approved drug rehabilitation program, provided that as a condition for reemployment on the project the employee agrees to be subject to testing at the request of the 212 Stuart Street Residences Project’s project manager for a period of up to six months. Any second offense involving an on-the-job bodily system presence of illegal drugs or alcohol will result in a permanent bar from employment on the 212 Stuart Street Residences Project.
- Possession, use or bodily system presence of prescription drugs without a valid prescription or alcohol on the job may result in a temporary or permanent project bar. The severity of the sanction will be determined on a case-by-case basis following investigation concerning the use of the drug. It is the intent of the 212 Stuart Street Residences Project that recreational use or abuse of prescription drugs will be treated the same as use of illegal drugs.
- These disciplinary rules supplement and do not supersede other rules and regulations duly promulgated by any contractor. In no event shall the application of these rules or the use of illegal drugs or alcohol be construed as a defense to other employment related discipline.
2. Testing: Employees will be subject to drug and alcohol testing only under the following circumstances:
- Pre-Placement / Pre-Employment.
- Post-Accident: Any employee who is directly involved in an accident on the job site or in the course of job duties which involves use of vehicular equipment, heavy equipment, power tools or other dangerous instrumentality or working conditions and which results in a need for off site medical care or substantial property damage (generally in excess of $1000) shall be referred for a substance test. A substance test will not be required if the 212 Stuart Street Residences project safety manager, representative in consultation with others, determines that the employee did not contribute to the cause of the accident or could not have avoided it. The test must be conducted by a NIDA/SAMSHA certified laboratory as soon as practical following the accident. Such test shall be undertaken prior to and as a condition of returning to work.
- Reasonable Cause: A substance test may be required where there is reasonable cause to suspect that an employee has an in-system presence of intoxicants or drugs on the job or in a job status (such as on contractor or owner-provided transportation). An employee will not be tested under this paragraph unless employee conduct or other related circumstances provide a reasonable basis to believe that the employee may have ingested an intoxicating substance and/or is suffering from impairment of some sort while on the job site. Such observation must be confirmed by a second member of Contractor supervision, wherever possible. For Contractors signatory to the Agreement, observation shall also be discussed with the Union steward, provided a steward is readily available. Finally, before an employee is referred for reasonable cause testing, the action must be approved by a senior member of Contractor management (above foreman/supervisor). All management representatives responsible for making such observations and/or referrals shall be required to attend a Department of Transportation (DOT) approved training program in order to be authorized to make such observations or referrals.
Employees removed from duty for post-accident
testing will remain off-duty until test results are received. If the employee tests negatively, the employee will receive full back pay for the time missed. If the employee tests positively, the employee will be barred from the project effective the date and time of the specimen collection. Any employee so barred will be eligible for consideration for reemployment on the project after a period of not less than sixty days. Before being rehired, any such employee must pass a drug test conducted by a NIDA/SAMSHA certified laboratory at the employee’s expense and must agree, as a condition of reemployment, to submit to substance use testing at the CCIP project manager’s request, for a period of six months.
III. DRUGS TO BE TESTED AND TEST PROCEDURES
- Test Standards: Drugs to be tested, specimen collection, chain of custody and threshold and confirmation test levels shall comport with the Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Testing Programs established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Drug tests shall be conducted as described in Part III, 2 below. Any alcohol testing will be conducted by devices and under procedures approved by Massachusetts law.
- Test Procedures: Drug testing will be conducted in three phases by urine testing.
- Phase 1- Point of Collection (POC) Immunoassay Screen using the icup/instant test, or its equivalent. If the POC test is ”inconclusive”, the specimen shall be split and will be sent by overnight courier to a NIDA/SAMSHA laboratory for Phase 2 and Phase 3 testing if necessary.
- Phase 2 – Immunoassay screening and specimen integrity testing by EMIT or equivalent. If the specimen is unacceptable, the employee or applicant will be requested to provide a fresh specimen. If the Phase 2 screen reads positive, it will be forwarded for Phase 3 confirmation testing.
- Phase 3 – Confirmation testing by Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS). Positive test results will be forwarded to the Medical Review Officer (MRO) to be reviewed with the specimen provider and reported to the 212 Stuart Street Residences Project’s Safety Manager.
- Alllaboratory testing shall be conducted only by laboratories licensed and certified by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and shall be conducted in accordance with the Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Testing Programs, as amended.
- Pre-employment analysis will test for the following drugs. The threshold level for a positive test for each drug is as indicated:
Description Screening Level Confirmation Level
Benzoylecgonine-Cocaine Metab 150 ng/ml 100 ng/ml
Marijuana Metabolite 50 ng/ml 15 ng/ml
Amphetamines 500 ng/ml 250 ng/ml
Opiates 2000 ng/ml 2000 ng/ml
Phencyclidine 25 ng/ml 25 ng/ml
The following panel of drugs will be included in post-accident testing:

Benzodiazepines 300 ng/ml 200 ng/ml
Methadone 300 ng/ml 200 ng/ml
Methylenedioxymethampetamine 500 ng/ml 250ng/ml
Alcohol- An employee shall be presumed to be under the Influence of alcohol with a breath alcohol level equal to or greater than .08 percent alcohol.
In the event that the Department of Health and Human Services changes the screen or confirmation threshold cutoffs or adds new drugs or procedures to the list of drugs to be tested and the prescribed test procedures, or the Commonwealth of Massachusetts amends the presumption levels for alcohol impairment, this policy shall be automatically amended to accommodate such change, addition or amendment.
- Retests: In the event of a positive result, there is an automatic confirmation test (GC/MS) performed by the drug testing laboratory at no cost to the employee. In addition, the drug test laboratory shall preserve a sufficient aliquot specimen as to permit independent confirmatory testing and follow-up retesting at the request of the employee or by the 212 Stuart Street Residences Project at its expense. The laboratory shall endeavor to notify the employee/applicant and the 212 Stuart Street Residences Safety Manager of positive test results within three working days after receipt of the specimen. The employee/employer may request a re-test within three working days from notice of a positive test result. Costs of re-tests will be paid in advance by the requesting party. In the event the initial test is proven to be a false positive, costs for any retests shall be reimbursed.
- The drug test laboratory and the specimen collection facility must establish and maintain a forensically acceptable chain of custody. It will be the burden of Consigli Construction as the 212 Stuart Street Residences Construction Manager to establish, in any case arising from a positive test result, that the appropriate chain of custody has been maintained.
- Employees must execute any documentation necessary to release report of test results to the 212 Stuart Street Residences Project Safety Manager. Failure to execute the appropriate release forms or to comply with testing procedures, (including adulteration of test specimens) will result in a permanent bar from the Project.
