Emergency Response Plan


  • In the event of an emergency the following policy will be adhered to for the safe evacuation of the Project. An immediate call will be made 911.  

A Consigli representative will be dispatched to the front of the building to meet the responding Emergency Personnel and advise the individual in charge of the location of any chemicals or hazardous substances that may be present on any of the floors. SDS’s will be readily available if needed by the Fire Dept.

In the event of a serious injury requiring the assistance of EMS the injured worker will be kept as comfortable as possible.  Emergency first aid if necessary will be administered.  Under no circumstances will the injured person be moved unless the worker’s life is in danger because of fire or calamity.  A worker will be assigned to meet the medical personnel to direct them to the location of incident.

In the event an evacuation is required, all personnel at this job site will assemble at the muster point. The foreman for each company will meet at that location and take a count of their staff.  If for some reason a worker is unaccounted for, the fire department will be notified of the last location where the worker was observed.

Site Safety Plan

Scope of Proposed Operations:   Replacing finishes throughout the sports club including: tile and carpet flooring, wall finishes, lighting, millwork in Locker Rooms.  Sports club to be active during construction.  Work to be phased over a 12 month period throughout different areas of the facility.

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.

Identify the specific route in and out of the construction site (Traffic Management): For this project all deliveries and waste removal shall enter using designated access points and be coordinated with the general contractor. Also only permitted truck routes will be used.  All contractors will be responsible for adhering to the logistics plan, which will be made available to all sub-contractors. All deliveries will need to be approved by the CCC Superintendent.

Designated work hours (any work outside these hours must have prior CCC approval):  Work shall take place during business hours, Monday – Friday 7:00am to 3:30pm.  There will also be some off-hours work at times.  Any work which may need to take place outside of normal hours will need to be approved by the CCC Superintendent, and may need to be coordinated with WS development.

Demolition:  Prior to the start of any demo operations, the demo contractor will confirm 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 ontification 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 are 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

Fall Protection: General work over 6 feet will require some form of fall protection in accordance with CCC fall protection policy. All scaffold erectors will maintain the ability to have fall protection by donning a harness and lanyard at all times during erection. 

Holes greater than 2” will be covered with acceptable material (3/4” plywood or ½” steel) which will be secured and marked cover or hole (cover must be able to withstand four times the intended load).  Covers will stay in place until the hole/penetration has been filled. 

Before any work is to begin on the roof, it must be determined what method of fall protection will be implemented (fall protection plan, 100% tie off, guard rails, flagging etc.) Workers on a roof with a slope less than 4 to 1 may put flagging (six feet for roofers-15 feet for everyone else) lines up.  Whenever roofers and any other trade are on the same roof then the flagging must be pulled in to the maximum distance. 

Toe boards are required to be installed any time in which there is a risk for materials to be knocked off of an edge, or material will need to be kept a minimum of 6’ from the roof edge.  In addition, any materials that may be blown off of the roof shall be secured/weighted down.

**Review Chapter 13 for more detail

Work on Ladders: All work on step ladders/straight ladders will be done correctly per manufacturer’s recommendations.  Any worker who is on a step/straight ladder and could be 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.  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.  Basic ladder safety must be adhered to at all times.

 Scaffold and elevated work platforms:  All scaffolds (except bakers and form brackets) will be inspected daily, before each shift by a competent person designated by each individual contractor that will be using it.  The inspections will be documented on Inspection tags located at the access point to each scaffold. A scaffold checklist will be provided by CCC to the subcontractors’ designated persons to aid them with their inspection.  This checklist will be filled out prior to the beginning of each shift and filed in the construction office. Overhead protection will be provided for all access points at any buildings which are located under any form of scaffolding. 

The base of the scaffold will require protection from unauthorized individuals.  This shall be either a site fence or the base of the scaffold shall be wrapped with plywood extending 8’ in height.  All scaffolding that is procured by CCC and is over 15’ in height will require that the CCC Safety Department review the scaffold prior to it being turned over for use by tradesmen. 

** Please review chapter 14 for additional details.  

Aerial/Scissor Lifts:  Area and ground conditions in the intended work area will be inspected for overhead power lines, sink holes, covers, or any other unsafe condition which causes the potential for an incident.  Aerial and scissor lift platforms will be inspected daily before each shift by a competent person designated by each individual contractor who will be using it.  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 if there will be aerial lifts operating on them.Workers will be tied off at all times when using an aerial lift.

Chemical and Materials:  All Materials and chemicals used on-site will have an SDS provided before being brought onsite.

  • SDS sheets on file with Consigli Construction’s Site Safety Plan
  • All SDS sheets shall be readily accessible.

** Please review chapter 20 for additional details.  

Fire Protection: The hot work permit program will be implemented for all hot work to be conducted on the project.  This will be coordinated through the Consigli as well as WS Development.  All hot work will stop one half hour before the regular end of the day work.  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 extinguishers will be provided for every 3000 square feet.  They will be installed on job made stands and conspicuously located throughout the project.  They will be part of the daily inspection with extinguisher log completed monthly.  Storage of any oxygen or acetylene cylinders will be done in a secure and upright area, with good ventilation.  This will be a strict no smoking project.

**Review Chapter 17 for more detail.

Electrical: 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 per NFPA 70E.

**Review Chapter 26 for more detail

Utility Exposures:  Before any work is started that may impact known utilities, all due care will be taken to identify the locations of underground utilities.  Subcontractors must review field conditions, as-built drawings, Dig-Safe, etc. to insure that there is no impact to the utilities.

Crane: It is not anticipated for this project, but in the event that there may be a crane required on site at various times in order to load/unload material.  All cranes will require independent annual 3rd party inspections and will be utilized for operation only after detailed lift plans are submitted.   It is anticipated that these cranes will be hydraulic. 

There is a requirement to assure that certified riggers, signalmen, and crane assemblymen are utilized.  A site specific erection plan will be required for the structural steel erection with review of certifications prior to any of these operations taking place.  All picks are to be done by a licensed operator.  As previously mentioned, a detailed pick plan will be required to assure that no picks are critical in nature.  Critical picks are defined as those involving 2 cranes lifting simultaneously, a pick that is over 75% of capacity, a pick that involves the lifting of a man basket, or any other lift that is deemed to involve special conditions.  Location and set up will be reviewed with crane operator prior to set up and pick.  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. 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.

2. All lattice boom cranes will have an independent 3rd party inspection completed each time one is set up on the project, after assembly and prior to operation.

3. All equipment operators will be required to have in their possession all appropriate licensing and training as required by OSHA and the State of CT.

4. All underground vaults and existing utilities will be marked before as well as before any crane is set up.

5. Documented rigging equipment inspections.

6. Documented daily crane inspections filed with CCC weekly.

** Please review chapter 24 for additional details.  

Designated First Aid Plan: All injuries must be reported to Consigli.  CCC will then report all injuries to the CCC Safety Director.  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. 

** Please review chapter 1 and 27 for additional details.  

Evacuation Plan (RACE, and Routes of Egress): Please refer to the Evacuation Plans attached.  All contractors’ employees shall attend CCC Construction Project Orientation.  Consigli Construction’s Job Supervisor will conduct a safety orientation talk to each employee and subcontractor to site specific fire safety protocols.

Emergency Management Response: In the event of an Emergency the construction workers shall leave the building immediately and proceed to the muster point indicated in the evacuation plan.  In the Event of a DISASTER, the Superintendent or Safety director shall instruct the construction workers to leave the site or remain in place and await further instruction.  The following steps should be taken in the event of an emergency

When reporting an emergency, please provide the following:

• Your location, phone number, and name;

• The location of the incident (building name, floor and unit number);
