Site Safety PlanS.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); 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.
Section 1 – Job Safety Analysis & Accident Prevent PlanActivity Hazard Analysis (AHA): AHA will be provided by the contractor to the COTR in advance of the scheduled preparatory meeting for review. AHA’s will be submitted through email for approval. During the preparatory meeting the AHA will be reviewed to ensure that applicable safety requirements are met and that the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) are submitted and incorporated. AHA’s must be submitted in PDF form and be printed and kept on site. All SDS sheets will also be printed and kept on site. Work shall not begin until the AHA with Overall Risk Assessment Code (RAC) has been accepted by the COTR. AHA’s shall at a minimum:
- Define the steps being performed within the activity or task.
- Identify the work sequences.
- Identify specific anticipated hazards, site conditions, equipment, materials and/or personnel.
- Identify the control measures to be implemented.
- Identify Risk Assessment Code (RAC) for each step after the controls have been implemented.
- Have an assigned overall RAC that cannot be lower than the highest step RAC.
- Identify the name of the Competent Person(s) and/or Qualified Person(s) required for a particular activity as specified by OSHA.
- Be reviewed and modified as necessary to address changing site conditions, operations or change to CP(s)/QP(s).
- Be in the possession of workers/crew while work is being performed.

Section 3 – Protection of Public and Means of EgressAll workers for the project will be briefed on the Emergency Action and Evacuation plan shown on Exhibit B. The plan details the means of egress for the workers on the Project. There will be limited impact to the public egress paths from the building and the proposed plan of action is outlined below. Protection of the Public This project will have minimal impact to the public as the bulk of the work will be done in the MER1 equipment room which is non-occupied. The public, however, will be impacted during the crane lift (see Attachment Q for traffic plan). The new generator will be hoisted over the existing sidewalk on Constitution Ave NE. In order to protect the public, the sidewalk will be closed during this operation and pedestrians detoured to the other side of the street. Consigli’s Superintendent will walk the site daily and perform inspections. Inspections shall be documented in the Daily Log and will be provided to AOC as a regular submittal through the approved submittal process for this project. Additional PPE (Hardhat, glasses, etc.) will be made available on site for progress walks with A/E, Owner, etc.
Section 4 – Means of ProtectionStorage: It is prohibited to store, position, or use equipment, tools, materials, scraps, and trash in a manner likely to present a hazard to the public or building occupants by its accidental shifting, ignition, or other hazardous qualities. Storing of combustible or flammable liquids shall be in accordance with the current edition of the National Fire Code for Flammable and Combustible Materials (NFPA 30). Joint sealants and any other flammable materials will be brought to site on an as-needed basis. Any flammable materials that must remain on site overnight will be stored in a locked flammable cabinet. Compressed gases shall be stored in accordance with Compressed Gas Associations (CGA) guidelines. Compressed gases and flammable liquids will not be stored within enclosed structures. Should compressed gases be needed for any of the work, they will be brought on-site on an as-needed basis. Obstructions: No corridor, aisle, stairway, door, or exit shall be obstructed or used in such a manner as to encroach upon routes of ingress or egress utilized by the public or building occupants, or to present an unsafe or unhealthy condition to the public or building occupants. No fences or barricades will be erected as part of this work. The job site is secluded from the public and thus does not necessitate any temporary barriers. Housekeeping: Workers are responsible for daily and continual clean-up, to include dust elimination/minimization during and upon completion of work activities and shall leave the work area broom swept. Housekeeping practices shall be in conformance with OSHA 29 CFR 1926.25; 29 CFR 1926.62; and 29 CFR 1926.1101.

- The name and amount of the material spilled (if applicable); and
- The safest route to the spill (if applicable).
Section 11 – Subcontractor InterfaceThe primary subcontractor interface will take place in the daily stand up meetings held by Consigli’s Superintendent. Consigli’s Superintendent will utilize the daily standup meeting to coordinate all work on the site with subcontractors and work on any potential conflicts that may present safety, quality, or schedule issues. In addition to daily stand up meetings, Consigli’s team shall utilize additional Subcontractor interface methods as outlined below:
Pre-Construction Safety MeetingThe project team, as well as the Consigli safety department, will meet with each subcontractor before beginning work to review the 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. After reviewing the programs and meeting with the individual subcontractor, if the team is satisfied with the risk control direction, they will be permitted to begin work.
Safety OrientationsAll subcontractor’s employees shall attend the Consigli Construction Project Orientation prior to starting on-site. Consigli Construction’s Job Supervisor will conduct a safety orientation for each employee and subcontractor to discuss site specific safety protocols. See Exhibit N. Once completed, employees will sign acknowledging they have undergone this orientation and will be issued a hardhat sticker. All personnel will have completed the required AOC onboarding procedures including background checks and badging.
SafetyAll jobsite superintendents and competent persons will meet with the Consigli Superintendent once a week to discuss project updates and safety. Weekly “Toolbox” meetings as well as AHA review will be held by each company field supervisor and their crew. The signed documentation will be provided to the Consigli Superintendent and copies of these forms will be filed by the Superintendent as part of standard recordkeeping.
Restricted AreasWorkers are prohibited from entering any areas outside of the designated work area unless work has been previously authorized and scheduled. All workers must limit their impact on surrounding work areas to the smallest extent feasible. All construction personnel working on the job site will be required to obtain AOC Congressional badges. Consigli Construction has a non-fraternization policy with the public. All workers on-site will abide by this and avoid talking to any parties not related to the work.
Substance Abuse, Weapons, and ViolenceWorkers will be prohibited from using, possessing, concealing, transporting, promoting, and/or selling any controlled substances, not limited to alcoholic beverages, drugs, and non-prescribed medication. This policy will also be enforced for firearms, weapons, ammunition, and contraband. Consigli Construction has a zerotolerance policy for workplace violence. Any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other threatening or disruptive behavior will be grounds for immediate dismissal from the project.
Inter-Subcontractor Coordination and CommunicationConsigli will facilitate all inter-subcontractor communication for drawing and document management. All on site communication will be disseminated at weekly subcontractor foremen and PM meetings in addition to a daily 15-minute stand-up meeting at a time to be determined by the Consigli Superintendent. The daily meeting will consist of reviewing current construction activities, reviewing the construction look ahead, confirming all deliveries to be made within the next 72 hours as well as any other constraints. Consigli conducts daily stand-up meetings with all trades to discuss the plan for the day with all trades. The stand-up meeting provides all trades an opportunity to discuss work scopes for the day and any potential conflicts they see with other trades. Consigli’s Superintendent will lead the meeting with the trades and help resolve any potential logistical or safety conflicts.
Other meansWork plans in accordance with the contract documents for all work impacting building infrastructure systems (life safety, plumbing, HVAC, etc) are required prior to the start of work. The work plans are reviewed by Consigli’s Superintendent and Project team for compliance before submitting to AOC. AHA’s will be reviewed on the first work day of the week with the work crews. If additional workers join the work site, the AHA will have to be reviewed and signed by that individual. Weekly tool box topics shall be reviewed in the field with and signed by all workers and submitted for record to Consigli. These records shall be maintained on the Consigli Job site. Some other forms that Consigli shall require from subcontractors are: Hot Work permits, Confined Space Entry permits (not applicable to this Contract), crane plans (not applicable), out of service request forms, etc. The ultimate responsibility for all of these forms lies with Consigli.
Section 12 – Testing and DemonstrationTesting will be required for many of the items installed under this project including but not limited to;
- Pressure and leak test of fuel oil pipes
- Operation testing of new generator
- Integration test for generator system
- Testing of electrical system per NETA acceptance testing specification
Validation Requirements1. No validation requirements exist on this project.
Section 13 – Hazardous Communication PlanAll companies working on-site are required to submit a copy of their HAZCOM program, with all applicable SDS’s, and a company safety manual to Consigli’s Superintendent. These will be kept on-site with the Consigli Superintendent. HAZCOM plans will be required per 29 CFR 1910.1200. Whenever a product is first brought on-site, after it has already been approved through the submittal process, it must have a valid SDS, and a copy of the SDS is placed in with that companies’ respective SDS log. HAZCOM Plans shall have an index of SDS’s to facilitate timely location of said product in case of emergency. It is the Site Superintendent’s responsibility to update the SDS for all products used on-site. No new product containing a hazardous chemical will be purchased or used without first reviewing the corresponding SDS to determine the extent of the hazard and how to properly protect employees. The SDS log will be on site at all times for all personnel to review.
LabelingConsigli will ensure labels are clearly written or printed on containers that contain hazardous chemicals. These labels must be prominently displayed and have the chemical identity and appropriate hazard warning information, including the target organ(s), if available.
TrainingConsigli will ensure all employees who work with hazardous chemicals or have the potential of being exposed to hazardous chemicals have received HAZCOM training. These employees will have an understanding of the requirements of the HAZCOM standard per 29 CFR 1910.59; be able to read and interpret an SDS and warning label; take appropriate protective measures and know the identity and location of hazardous chemicals on the project site.
Hazard AnalysisAll job hazards will either be identified in the Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) or the Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA). The JHA (as seen in Exhibit J) will allow the Consigli Superintendent to identify the hazards and controls related to the commonly performed tasks on the project. This form will need to be completed every week and include the hazards, required PPE, and a Safe Plan of Action. If a particular task requires a complexity not covered under the JHA, then an AHA will need to be completed (see Exhibit A). The activity and risk level will be provided. For this project, it is not expected that any activity will surpass the rating of “M = Moderate Risk”. The hazard control measure section will need to be filled out to provide information on the protective equipment. This form shall be provided to the Consigli Superintendent prior to commencing the activity. Before the start of each work day, competent persons will ensure that their workers are aware of hazardous chemicals that they may be exposed to. The information to be shared includes protective and safety measures to take and measures the employees can take to reduce the hazard.
ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURESIDENTIFICATION AND CONTROLS SILICA: Consigli will provide a site specific written exposure control plan. Consigli will establish and implement a written exposure control plan that contains at least the following elements:
- A description of the tasks in the workplace that involve exposure to respirable crystalline silica;
- A description of the engineering controls, work practices, and respiratory protection used to limit employee exposure to respirable crystalline silica for each task;
- A description of the housekeeping measures used to limit employee exposure to respirable crystalline silica;
- 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 or sole proprietors;
PERMISSIBLE NOISE EXPOSURESDuration Per Day/Hours Sound Level dBA Slow Response
|1/4 or less||115|
POLYCHLORINATED BIPHENYLS (PCBS)PCB’s are not suspected in any of our planned work surfaces/task. At no time shall a worker disturb any material he/she cannot readily identify. If they come across a material he/she cannot confirm as PCB free, they shall notify their supervisor immediately. All finished suspected to contain PCB 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. Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) are a class of organic compounds with 1 to 10 chlorine atoms attached to biphenyl, which is a molecule composed of two benzene rings. In construction, they are commonly found in transformers, hydraulics, light ballasts, cable insulation, adhesives/tapes, paint, caulking and floor finishes. If PCBs have been identified on site, they must be tested to determine the PCB content. Any bulk PCB containing material greater than 50 ppm must be abated. Residual building materials (any concrete, mortar, or materials that abut known bulk PCB materials) that contain PCBs that are ≥ 1 ppm and are adjacent to bulk PCB materials must also be abated.
Section 14- Trenching & Shoring PlanThere is no trenching or excavation associated with this project.
Section 15 – Confined SpacesThere are no confined spaces associated with this project.
Section 16 – Scaffolding PlanScaffold use is not anticipated on this project based on the scope of work.
Section 17 – Fall Protection PlanNot Required on this project at this time. Elevated work shall be limited to ladder-based activities.
Section 18 – Means of AccessAll construction employees will be limited to work areas as denoted in the Project Documents unless specifically coordinated otherwise with AOC. Personnel will access the Hart Senate Office Building through 24-hour security checkpoint in Dirksen Senate Office Building. Jobsite access for all deliveries will be made through the Hart Senate Garage; Please see Exhibit P for jobsite access layout.
Section 19 – Multi-Employer Worksite PlanThis project will follow the OSHA Directive CPL 02-00-124, “Multi-Employer Citation Policy”. Per this directive, four employer categories will be established: controlling, creating, exposing, and correcting. Consigli Construction will, unless otherwise noted, serve as the controlling employer overseeing all activities within this scope of work. Should an incident occur on-site between Consigli’s major trade contractors, one or more of these will be identified as the creating employer(s) while the remainder will be identified as the exposing employer(s). If the exposing employer also caused the scope violation, then they will be held accountable. The exposing employer will be held accountable if it did not take safety measures to protect its employees. Finally, the contractor that takes corrective actions to remedy the violation will be identified as the correcting employer. Each company will ensure that their employees are trained to properly use PPE and perform safe means and methods while also communicating on-site about potential hazardous from other contractor’s work.
Section 20 – DemolitionPrior to the start of demolition, Consigli shall identify any potential equipment requiring “make safe” before the relocating, supporting, or removing of any lines that interfere with the Scope of Work. The electrician will “make safe” all items that may be damaged during relocation/removal process. Consigli have been provided existing utility drawings and these will be consulted in designing the demolition work plan. Consigli will then confirm that all utilities leading into the area have been made safe. Lock-out/tag-out and live equipment will be reviewed with subsequent subcontractors during the pre-construction safety meetings as required to ensure protection of existing utilities and site conditions are safe for construction activities to commence. The lock-out/tag-out tag procedure is attached as Exhibit D. In the event any utilities, electrical sources, etc. need to remain live to facilitate demolition, a color coding system will be utilized for easy identification of live utilities. Any utilities painted Red are live, not to be touched, and need to be protected during all operations. Utilities painted Green are to be removed as part of the selective demolition process (after lock-out/tag-out has been confirmed and utilities tested). If any utilities are unmarked, they shall be considered live. Consigli will be responsible for completing the Consigli demo checklist prior to the start of any new work. Temporary protection, if needed, will consist of either hard barrier walls or full poly walls. Sweeping compound will be used daily for dust control. Debris from any demolition will be removed through the work day and working surfaces will be kept free and clear of debris at all times.
Section 21 – Crane PlanPlease refer to Appendix Q for Crane Lift and Traffic Plan. The crane will be setup on Constitution Ave NE and the new generator will be lowered into generator room through the air shaft. A road closure will be needed during this operation. The crane selected is a Link-Belt HTC 6110 with 48,600lbs in counterweight, lifting at 51% capacity. Backup crane will be a Grove GMK5165-2 with 40,700lbs in counterweight, lifting at 64% capacity. Neither scenario constitutes as a critical lift since cranes will be operating at below 75% capacity. Crane inspection reports are also attached in Appendix Q. A certified crane operator and qualified rigger will be provided by WO Grubb for this operation.
Section 22 – Incident Investigation PlanEmergencies: In the event of a catastrophe or major accident occurring on a project, the USCP emergency number will be called first. Following that, the call hierarchy identified on the Emergency Action Plan will be followed. Consigli’s Corporate Safety Director (Dan Della-Guistina) must be notified as soon as physically possible.
