Site Safety Plan
I. Scope of Proposed Operations: Project consists of the erection of scaffold on the North elevation the kagan building. This scaffolding will facilitate the complete removal of existing cornice and its framing. After removal is complete new AVB and framing will be installed. This new framing will support new metal panels. Work associated with the roof will consist of a new epdm roof with 3 new roof drains. All this work will be completed from the scaffolding which will be taken down at the end of the project.Project is expected to start early spring 2019 and will completed by October 2019. At its peak this project will employ between 10 and 25 trade workers.
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, jobsite gym); 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 point and be coordinated with the general contractor. Also only permitted truck routes will be used, all contractors will be responsible for adhering to truck routes designated by CCC.
Designated work hours (any work outside these hours must have prior CCC approval): All work shall take place during business hours, Monday – Friday 7:00am to 3:30pm, any work which may need to take place outside of these hours will need to be approved by the CCC Superintendent. EMMC does not allow noise before 7am or after 7pm.
Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA): An AHA/JSA depending on level of hazard shall be conducted for each identifiable feature of work to be performed. The AHA/JSA shall be submitted to CCC. AHA/JHA shall be reviewed weekly, signed by all workers including their supervisor, with all involved personnel performing that particular task.
Demolition: Prior to the start of 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, and the HVAC subcontractor will do the same on the plumbing 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 spay 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. The demo contractor will be responsible for completing CCC demo checklist prior to the start of any work in their target areas.
Fall Protection: All workers exposed to a fall of 6′ in general, 4’ on mobile scaffold or greater shall be protected by guardrails safety nets or personnel fall arrest systems. This includes, but is not limited to, steel erection, roofing, scaffold erection and dismantling, overhand brick laying and pre-cast concrete related work. 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 (to be protected with cable guard rail system with turnbuckles to be installed for all straight runs and any straight run over 100 feet. Before any work is to begin on the roof it must be determined what method of fall protection will be implemented. All workers working on a roof with a slope greater than 4 to 1 and exposed to a fall greater than 6 feet will need fall protection as mentioned above. 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) until. Covers will stay in place until the hole/penetration has been filled with duct or Pipe riser which extends above the deck.
