In case of emergency a Consigli representative will be dispatched to the Main entrance 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. Safety Data Sheets 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 at the above location to direct them to the location of incident.
In the event an evacuation is required all personnel at this job site will assemble away from the building in the small parking area to the South of the building (see below logistics plan). The foreman for each company will meet at that location and take a head count of their staff and report to Consigli Superintendent. If for some reason a worker is unaccounted for, the fire department will be notified of the last location where the worker was observed.

I. Scope of Proposed Operations:
starting in April of 2019, with an expected completion date of August 2019. Early enabling work also be completed during
the winter break 2018/2019. The project scope involves:
30 dorm unit renovation. Gut renovation of kitchens and bathrooms with new carpet and VCT throughout the common rooms of the dorm units. Minor painting/patching in the bedrooms.
Façade – Removing the front center section of the exterior façade. (same as we did at BC Rubenstein hall this past summer.) Demo existing granite, brick backer, and curtain wall. Replace in kind with CMU, new granite, and new curtain wall.
Basement Renovation (Both A & B wings): Demoing out existing offices, lounges, laundry room. Trenching for underground plumbing, backfill, concrete slab infill, fit out new dorm units in these spaces along with a new laundry room, lounges, RA office, Etc. There will be some added structural beams/lintels to widen up some openings for new doors.
The majority of the above work will be taking place in Tower B and will involve all floors plus basement. Consigli completed a similar project in Tower Q in 2017. Project hours will be between 7:00am and 3:30pm Monday through Friday unless otherwise approved by Consigli Construction. At its peak this project will employ 10-20 workers representing several different trades.
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.
Identify the specific route in and out of the construction site (Traffic Management): All deliveries and waste removal shall be done using the entrance on East elevation and shall be coordinated with CCC with at least 48 hours’ notice. All contractors will be responsible for adhering to Boston College and Newton, MA restrictions and regulations in regards to driving, parking and delivering materials. Pedestrians will be given the right of way at all times. Parking will not be assigned, and all crew members are required to adhere to Boston College parking requirements.
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.
Services: Any compromises to Ignacio Hall services during the work performed will be handled accordingly.
- Adjacent areas shall be notified before all work that may compromise service or impact students or staff.
- During weekly project meetings, if needed upcoming work that may compromise service or impact guest/members shall be talked about with Ignacio Hall managers and scheduled for off shift if the group decides it will be needed.
- The on-site superintendent shall make weekly contact with all adjacent staff for the duration of the project.
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 Consigli superintendent/supervisor. AHA/JSA 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 contractor performing demo 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 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 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. The demo contractor will be responsible for completing CCC demo checklist prior to the start of any work in their target areas
Excavations: Other than saw cutting of basement concrete floor and subsequent excavation for under slab work (2 – 3 foot depth only), there will be no significant exterior excavations. If at some point exterior excavation needs to take place, all required permitting will be obtained before any excavating is to begin. If necessary, tabulated data/engineering for shoring and shielding systems will be obtained and available on site at all times when in use. All excavations will be inspected by a competent person on a daily basis. Written excavation inspections will be done if the excavation exceeds 5’.
- Dig Safe Notification – dig safe number will be obtained and posted in the site office.
- Jackie’s Law (520CMR 14.00) will be strictly adhered to and permits must be obtained. A copy will be posted in construction office.
- Copies of shoring engineering and tabulated data sheets for all trench boxes or other shoring/shielding systems brought on site will be provided to CCC and be kept in construction office.
**Review Chapter 19 for more detail
Fall Protection: Although it is not anticipated that there will be a high risk of fall exposures over 6’ in height on the project (only those associated with exterior façade repair,) it will still be communicated that all workers exposed to a fall of 6′ or greater shall be protected by guardrails, safety nets, or personnel fall arrest systems. Holes greater than 2” will be covered with acceptable material (3/4 plywood ½ steel) which will be secured and marked hole and capable of supporting 2x the intended load (cover must be able to withstand 2x times the intended axle load).
Covers will stay in place until the hole/penetration has been filled with duct or Pipe riser which extends above the deck. Building perimeters (to be protected with cable guard rail system with turnbuckles to be installed for all straight runs. Although it is anticipated that no work is to be completed on the roof it must be determined what method of fall protection will be implemented should access to roof be necessary. The use of safety Monitors is not allowed!!!
**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 install a form of fall protection. 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.
Scaffold and elevated work platforms: No scaffolds are anticipated to be in use on this project for there is no exterior use anticipated, however if scaffolds are required they will be inspected daily before each shift by a competent person designated by each individual contractor who will be using it.
Aerial/Scissor Lifts: If aerial lifts are required the area and ground conditions, in the intended work area, will be inspected for overhead power lines, sink holes, covers, or any other unsafe conditions which cause an unsafe incident. Aerial lift platforms will be inspected daily before each shift by a competent person designated. All who will be performing work from an aerial lift will show documented proof of training prior to using the lift. Steel plates or equipment mats will be placed on the ground above any utility/ underground structures if there will be Aerial lifts operating directly over them. Workers will be tied off at all times when using an aerial lift. All Utilities buried along the exterior elevations of Ignacio Hall will be marked out. At no time will lifts be set up above an existing utility. Subcontractors will be responsible for inspecting existing ground conditions and notifying Consigli if there are any issues prior to lift use.
HazCom/Global Harmonization: All Materials and chemicals used on-site will have Safety Data Sheet (SDS) provided before being brought onsite.
- SDS on file in Consigli Construction’s Site Safety Plan
- All SDS shall be readily accessible.
- The location of the SDS for all products onsite will be reviewed as part of the Consigli Site Orientation.
- At the completion of the project surplus materials and chemicals will be removed from the site. No hazardous chemicals will be left onsite.
** Please review chapter 20 for additional details.
Fire Protection: A Hot Work Permit will be required for any activity that generates heat, sparks or has an open flame. This will be coordinated through the Consigli, Boston College and Newton Fire. (If needed). Any hot work will stop one hour before the regular end of the day work stoppage. Flammables will not be stored inside the building or left overnight on the scaffold or in the building. 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. They will be part of the daily inspection with extinguisher log completed monthly. Storage of any acetylene cylinders will be done in a secure and upright area, with good ventilation. This will be a strict no smoking project. All penetrations leading outside of the construction area will be fire stopped using approved fire rated material prior to the end of each shift.
**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… 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. 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. 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 weekly to assure proper function with a log book filed with CCC monthly. No live electrical work will be conducted. No live electrical work will be conducted per NFPA 70E.
**Review Chapter 26 for more detail
Crane: Crane use is not anticipated. It is likely that a rough terrain forklift would be used to complet the exterior façade work. However, if a crane becomes necessary, the following shall apply: 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. In the event that a lattice boom crane is utilized, then the crane must get an on-site 3rd party inspection once the crane is assembled, prior to operation.
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.

Equipment issues: All operators will be required to have in their possession all appropriate licensing and training as required by OSHA and the Commonwealth of MA. 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 operators manual as well as an extinguisher with it at all times. Subcontractors who will have equipment on site will be responsible for having a spill kit available at all times.
** Please review chapter 24 for additional details
Confined Space: No confined space work is anticipated for this project. If confined space entry is required, 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. Furthermore, Boston College has a clear program for entering confined space on the campus. Highlights of that plan include:
- Completing BC’s confined space permit form for each space at the start of each shift and additionally, if necessary. The permit form as well as the contractor’s own form, should be maintained in the project file;
- Notifying BCPD (non-emergency 617-552-4440) and (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to and following entry. Specific location and entry times must be included.
- Conducting calibrated, personal 4-gas monitoring prior to each entry and continuously during work performance. Any readings outside permissible levels must sound an alarm and require workers to immediately exit the space;
- Maintaining a knowledgeable attendant, immediately outside each confined space, to continuously monitor the space and actively communicate with the entrant;
- Wearing a personal 4-gas monitor and appropriate PPE (i.e., full body harness tethered to a retrieval system) while occupying the confined space. If rescue would not be feasible using traditional equipment, outside assistance may be necessary.
- Immediately notifying BC Police (617-552-4444) in the event of any emergency.
** Please review chapter 21 as well as the Boston College Confined Space Entry Program for additional details
Designated First Aid Plan: All injuries no matter how minor must be reported to Consigli Superintendent immediately. The superintendent 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. Consigli Construction shall follow Site Safety Plan for first Aid. Report any incidents to the Safety Director.

All welders will be required to have hard hats with integral welding shields.
Restricted Areas: Contractors are prohibited from entering any adjacent areas of the building (read Building A) unless work has been previously authorized and scheduled. It is important that workers do not park in/in front of adjacent driveways during construction. All workers will try to limit their impact on surrounding areas.
Materials management, getting materials into and out of the project, will be
done through existing service elevators and loading dock. Getting materials
into and out of the project will be a challenge that needs to be adequately
planned. All deliveries are to be
scheduled with the CCC Superintendent. A
comprehensive Activity Hazard Analysis shall be done on all materials that will
be hoisted and placed into the building. Only materials which will be
used/installed in a reasonable amount of time will be delivered to the site.
Attention must be paid to structural analysis in regards to loading existing
floors with material and equipment.
Lean Requirements: No materials shall be delivered to the site earlier than 3 days before said materials are to be installed/put into place. If materials have to be delivered before that 3 day time period, subcontractor shall get prior approval from Consigli Superintendent. Because of this, notification / scheduling is required for all deliveries to the site. Subcontractors must notify Contractor at least 24 hours in advance. Contractor has the right to refuse any deliveries not properly scheduled or due to logistical constraints as necessary .All subcontractors’ delivered materials shall be placed on wheeled carts, wheeled racks or in wheeled bins so as to necessitate easy relocation in the event materials need to be moved. Carts, racks, or dollies shall not exceed manufacturers intended weight loads. Materials/tools can be delivered and stored on pallets only if pallet jacks are delivered simultaneously with said delivery to provide for ready mobility. Additionally, pallet jacks need to remain in immediate area. Each subcontractor will need to supply their own pallet jacks for their own materials and keep their pallet jack within reasonable distance at all times. All work stations shall be provided with wheeled trash bins for immediate placement of all debris produced as a part of the subcontractors operations. All trash will be immediately placed in wheeled containers provided by Consigli. All subcontractors shall use rubber wheeled carts when moving material or removing trash from a building. Any damage caused by the Subcontractor shall be repaired at the cost of the Subcontractor. Back charges will be appropriately assessed for the cost of the repairs. No trash or materials shall be left on the floor. Subcontractors shall, where feasible, elevate all electrical extension cords, hoses, or cables – removing them from all walking/working surfaces. Electrical Cords, when elevated shall be supported or suspended in a manner that does not subject them to damage. Storage of delivered materials in cardboard containers shall be discouraged. When materials must stay in cardboard containers, said containers shall be removed from the projects immediately after product is unpacked.
Subcontractor will participate in schedule development meetings as required by Consigli
Minimum Site Safety Requirement: All Consigli workers, and any subcontractors, shall have, at a minimum, an OSHA 10 Hour Construction Safety Outreach training certificate and shall provide documentation of training.
Steel Erection: None anticipated. If any structural steel work is anticipated they will be required to use fall protection at 6′. Consigli will release documentation when column footings reach 75% of breaking strength. 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. Decks will only be turned over for general use after they have undergone an inspection by a member of the CCC safety department.

Asbestos: A Hazardous Materials report has been prepared by Axiom Partners. Asbestos has been identified in the building. Asbestos abatement will be completed by a licensed/certified contractor. Locations for asbestos include: Joint Compound, Windows and sealants, and the roof parapet cap mastic. The complete table and “List of Materials tested, Quantities, and Locations” can be found with the hazardous material report. 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. All identified asbestos will be fully abated by a licensed and regulated asbestos abatement contractor under a formal plan to be written, submitted and in accordance with the DEP.
IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ALL SUBCONTRACTOR FOREMEN TO REVIEW THE HAZOUDOS MATERIAL REPORT & CORRESPONDING ABATEMENT REPORT WITH THEIR WORKERS. A copy of the hazardous Material/abatement report will be on site at all times and available to anyone request it. All work and disposal will be done in compliance with state and federal regulations and standards. All workers on this project must have completed Asbestos awareness training prior to starting on this project.
Lead: A Hazardous Materials report has been completed and has identified lead paint on existing handrails. Consigli workers who will need to perform work on these painted surfaces 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 by all subcontractors for all task prior to when the full scale of this work is to take place. This does not mean that lead 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. All workers on this must have completed Lead Awareness training prior to starting on this project. Hand wash stations will be provided to ensure proper hygiene during the project. An exposure assessment will also be done for any task which will disturb any lead containing material.
Silica: 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; and 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.
There will be no dry cutting of any masonry material allowed; if water cannot be used then a dustless vacuum system consisting of HEPA dustless vacuum system will be used. Prior to the project going full scale an exposure assessment of a worker grinding and cutting masonry while using the HEPA system an exposure assessment will be done so as to establish the silica exposure level. No respirators will be issued 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.
Polychlorinated Biphenyl’s (PCBs): At this time there are no activity’s which are planned which would disturb any surface with suspect amounts of PCB’s… This does not mean that regulated levels of PCB’s 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.
Light ballast unless labeled “No PCB’S” will be designated PCB containing, 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 BIDMC. All other inquiries or locations in regards to PCB containing material can be located in the Hazardous Material survey. If identified on any of the materials to be impacted, PCB‘s will be abated. Any and all PCB remediation will be performed by a licensed /qualified contractor
** Please review chapter 29 for additional details**
Freon/Glycol: All Freon/Glycol materials will be removed from equipment and stored per manufacturer’s recommendations before it is disturbed, moved or removed. 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.
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.
** Please review chapter 22 for additional details**
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, properly stored on site, and either given to the school’s facilities department or collected by an outside vendor to be recycled or disposed of properly.
Noise: Noise exposure will be a concern so all operations must be coordinated with the Consigli Superintendent to limit any excess noise impact on the surrounding areas. All activity r task which may cause load noise will be restricted as needed so as to limit the impact on Guest/Members.
** Please review chapter 29 for additional details**
Exposure to the Visitors, Staff and Residents:
During all phases of construction pedestrian walkways around the project will be open and occupied. Some areas of project will be opened for construction at different times. Any pedestrian walkway under any type of scaffold or overhead hazard will be provided with overhead protection. At no time is any worker allowed to enter any of the adjacent buildings. Non fraternization with staff, members and students will be stressed with all subcontractor personnel during orientations.
Planning: The project team will meet with the staff before the project start to review any site specific safety and health requirements. The project team shall be an integrated mix of owner, architect, engineer and Consigli Construction personnel. If, after reviewing programs and meeting with the individuals, the team is satisfied with the risk control direction, personnel will be permitted to begin work.
