Consigli Project # 2092
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 to 911. Project information for the call is – Rock Row site located at 11 Larrabee Road, Westbrook, ME 04092– Meet responders at the construction entrance located on Larrabee Road (Note: If calling from a cell phone you will be reaching the State Police and not the local emergency response)
A Consigli representative will be dispatched to the front main gate 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 made 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 main entrance gate to direct them to the location of incident. All personnel who drive or are driven to a hospital to seek treatment will go the Occupational Health Clinic at Concentra Health Care Hospital.
In the event an evacuation is required all personnel at this job site will assemble in front of the fence located outside of the loading dock. 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: 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.
Post Incident Review: Any CCC 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 ?? (post incident review form) 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 and other CCC projects to prevent reoccurrence.
Identify the specific route in and out of the construction site (Traffic Management): For this project all deliveries and waste removal shall enter using construction access gate located on Larrabee Road and be coordinated. Also, only permitted truck routes will be used, all contractors will be responsible for adhering to truck routes designated by CCC/Westbrook.
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.
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 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. 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′ 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 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 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 have fall protection 100%of the time spent in this location. 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 back to the maximum distance. All subcontractors will be responsible for barricading/taping off areas below their elevated work. 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.
Roof Work: Before any work is to begin on the roof it must be determined what sections of the roof will be worked and what method of fall protection will be implemented. Attention will be paid to any access points located below elevated work. If present, they will be protected. (100% tie off, guard rails, flagging etc. the use of safety monitors is not allowed)
Scaffold and elevated work platforms: All scaffolds supported frame, pipe staging and Aerial lift platforms 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 located at the stair tower to each section… A scaffold checklist will be provided by CCC to each sub-contractor (upon request) designated persons to aid them with their daily inspection. All contractors who will be erect scaffold 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. Overhead protection will be provided for all access points at any buildings which are located under any form of scaffolding. Fall protection is required at 6’ on all scaffolds, on mobile scaffold fall protection is required at 4’. Mobil staging with a work platform with a height to base ratio greater than two to one will require outriggers.
** 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 cause an unsafe incident. Aerial lift platforms 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 or Logbooks for each individual scaffold/elevated platform. 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!!
HazCom/Global Harmonization: All Materials and chemicals used on-site will have Safety Data Sheet (SDS) provided before being brought onsite.
- SDS sheets on file in Consigli Construction’s Site trailer and or on pro-core.
- All SDS sheets shall be readily accessible.

Environmental Emergency Contact and Management Response
Consigli’s identified Emergency Response Subcontractor;
Name: Cynn Environmental Services, Inc. (781)341-1777
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
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.
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 **
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 Mon-Fri; any contractor who may need to work late must first seek approval from the CCC Superintendent. Noise levels will be monitored when high levels of noise could be expected to assure that noise levels do not exceed acceptable OSHA levels. Consigli permissible noise policy and procedures will be followed.
** Please review chapter 29 for additional details **
Exposure to the Visitors, Staff and Residents: During all phases of construction, the buildings and pedestrian walkways around the project will be open and occupied. Some areas of project will be opened for construction at different times; this plan must be followed by all workers. Any pedestrian walkway which finds itself 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, visitors, public or neighbors will be stressed with all subcontractor personnel during orientations.
Exposure to Street Traffic: All deliveries will be made at the designated gates unless otherwise directed by Superintendent. Their will be exposure to live vehicular traffic and police details/ flaggers will be used when required. All speed limits will be obeyed, and deliveries will be made as to coincide with working hours. . All traffic control signage (if needed) will meet Bangor requirements before being installed. Fire dept access will be maintained and kept open for emergency responders.
Additional Controls: Prior to start of any work, all personnel involved in the project, including project managers must be:
Trained and orientated by Consigli Construction, Stickers will be issued and displayed on hard hats. 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
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 of our projects. Members from the CCC and MH project teams (Supers, PM, APM, PE,OPM, Architect, Owners, etc..) will be provided with 5$ MH cafeteria gift certificates prior to their walk on site. They are to present these cards to workers who are working safely and or those taking additional steps to work safely. After issuing the card, the name and hard hat sticker number of the worker as well as a brief description of what they were doing will be documented in a log that will be maintained in the field office. This shall be completed at a minimum of twice a week. It is required that different field staff take turns in issuing the cards to workers in the field. Also required will be the communication of who is be recognized to other sub contractors/workers through foreman meetings and daily stand ups. at the end of the project the sub-contractor who has had the most workers recognized will receive an appropriate acknowledgment from CCC as well as some type of reward that is to be determined by CCC field staff.
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.
Loss Exposures and Controls: All individuals working on this project will go through a comprehensive Safety Orientation which will cover all company safety rules regulations and procedures as well as communicating Inland Specific requirements.
All personnel working on site shall have documentation of an OSHA 10 Hour Construction Safety Outreach training program minimally.
Loss related exposures will involve, cuts, scrapes, and strains related to window roof material installations. Controls will involve use of gloves and materials handling equipment. Fall protection related hazards will be limited to working on roofs, scaffold, window openings, aerial lifts and access upper elevations. This will be controlled through use of well maintained and inspected PFAS, scaffolding and ladders as well as training on proper Aerial lift use.
Fraternization between construction employees and project owners, staff or visitors will not be permitted. Loud and profane language or clothing with offensive language will not be allowed on the jobsite. Extra efforts must be made to keep noise to a minimum
