Site Safety Plan
Scope of Proposed Operations: The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) New Quissett Facilitywill begin in Spring of 2020 with substantial completion in the Spring of 2021. Project hours will be between 7:00am and 3:30pm Monday through Friday. All work performed outside of these designated times Consigli approval. The scope of the project is a new building and site improvements for WHOI. Work on the project includes: Significant Site work for utilities and building.
New foundations. Structural Steel erection.
Concrete decks and floors
Glass & Metal façade
New MEPFP throughout the building
Landscaping, parking, and site utility improvements. “The building will have a series of large, double height working spaces with cranes, overhead doors, project workrooms, temporary space, collaborative space, a social gathering hub, moveable furniture, and fabrication machines. The third floor is designated as shell space, which will serve as a vital space for temporarily locating existing departments from areas that require renovations in other buildings.” – https://web.whoi.edu/facility-updates/new-quissett-facility/
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 describe how they are managed through a comprehensive Safety and Health Program. This site specific safety plan will work in conjunction with the Consigli Safety Program as well as the WHOI site requirements.
Contractor Orientation: All workers onsite will review the Consigli Construction safety orientation video and present an OSHA 10 training card. Site specific safety elements will be reviewed with all new workers by the Consigi field staff. Once all orientation and initial training is complete Consigli hardhat stickers will be issued.
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.) Weekly Predictive Solutions inspections will be uploaded to SCOPE; Leadership (Empowering our team members to assure safe projects); Humanization (Protect the ones you love by protecting yourself); Jobsite Gym (Morning warm-up stretch program); 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.
Logistics/Access/Traffic Management: Main construction access will be restricted to routes pre-determined by Woods Hole and Consigli. All contractors will be responsible for adhering to Falmouth restrictions and regulations in regards to driving, parking and delivering materials. Strict adherence to posted speed limits and parking locations is required. Pedestrians will be given the right of way at all times. Parking will be designated in pre-determined contractor parking locations and reviewed during orientation. Pedestrian access through the campus must be kept clear.
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 and the Woods Hole Project Management team.
Job Safety Analysis (JSA): A Job Safety Analysis (JSA) shall be conducted for each identifiable feature of work to be performed. The JSA shall be submitted to Consigli superintendent/supervisor. At a minimum the JSA shall be reviewed weekly. More frequent review shall be necessary as tasks change. The JSA shall be reviewed with all involved personnel performing that particular task and signed by all workers including their supervisor.
Excavations: Excavations will be required for footing and foundation work. 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/utility locator – number/report will be posted in office
- City or Town permit requirements (DPW & Town Hall) if needed.
- Jackie’s Law (520CMR 14.00) will be strictly followed and permitting will be
Obtained. A copy will be posted in construction office.
- Soil onsite shall be pre-characterized for contaminants prior to any export from site.
- Copies of soil 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**
Eastern Box Turtle Protection – The area around the project site has been identified as a habitat for the Eastern Box Turtle and protection efforts shall be made during the course of the project starting during the site work phase.
1) Prior to the start of work or April 1, 2019, LEC shall conduct a training session to educate contractors on the likely presence of Eastern Box Turtles within the vicinity of the construction footprint. Reference materials will be distributed to describe proper identification of Eastern Box Turtlesand appropriate protocols should a turtle be encountered within the construction footprint.
Temporary Turtle Barrier Protection
1) During the Turtle Active Season (April 1st through October 31st)—Once per week, the contractor shall inspect the temporary turtle barriers and facilitate any repairs or alterations. The turtle barrier should remain entrenched and vertical/taut between stakes and any holes or gaps repaired immediately.
2) Outside the Turtle Active Season (November 1st through March 31st)— If work activities conducted between November 1st and March 31st (of any year) continue beyond April 1st of that year, LEC shall conduct an early season inspection of the barrier in late March or early April of that year to facilitate any repairs or alteration necessary for the barrier to function for turtle protection. A summary report with photographs shall be submitted to NHESP prior to April 15th of each year.
Demolition: The project is to be built on a newly cleared site with little to no existing structures or utilities. Scope of demolition for this phase is limited.
Prior to the start of demo operations, the contractor preforming 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 (or otherwise marked) 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 until they are marked. Any existing walls shall be removed using hand tools until investigation shows what mechanical systems are present behind the wall. The demo contractor will be responsible for completing CCC demo checklist prior to the start of any work in their target areas
Fall Protection: The work on this project will require work at height. The majority of this work will be performed during steel erection and flat roof work. Fall protection will primarily be accomplished with the use of Personal Fall Arrest Systems (PFAS) and guardrails. Other work at height may include work from scaffold platforms and ladders. All fall protection for work performed on scaffolds will be required at a height of 6 feet or greater. All scaffold erectors will maintain the ability to have fall protection by donning a harness and lanyard at all times during erection. The roof will be reviewed for any leading edges and fall protection will be used/installed as required.
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.
**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 (i.e. working by an open window or at a balcony edge.) will be required to utilize personal fall arrest system (PFAS) secure to structure overhead. Step ladders will not be used as a form of access to a walking /working level, also all straight ladders will be secured when installed for use. Only ladders with a rating Type 1A or 1AA will be allowed on Consigli projects. Ladders use shall be reviewed in the JSA with alternative methods (scaffold, lift, etc.) considered to reduce hazards associated with ladder use. 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 posted inspection tags, or, in the case of lifts, on the inspection checklist. A scaffold checklist will be provided by CCC to each subcontractors 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. At a minimum, fall protection is required at 6’ on all scaffolds on Consigli projects. It is anticipated that a rolling “baker” style scaffold may be used on this project. For mobile scaffolds on Consigli projects, the rules are stricter: guardrails are required at 4’. Mobile scaffolds with a work platform set at a height to base ratio greater than two to one will require outriggers. Mobile scaffolds must have the wheels locked when in use.
** Please review chapter 14 for additional details.**
Aerial/Scissor Lifts: When lifts are to be used onsite, the area, slab, and/or 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. Scissor lift use is fully expected on the 3rd floor. Aerial/scissor lifts will be inspected daily before each shift by a competent person designated. All who will be performing work from an aerial/scissor lift will show documented proof of training prior to using the lift. This training will be documented with the workers orientation paperwork. Fall protection is required in the form of a PFAS is required in all aerial and scissor lifts and will be attached to the manufacturers prescribed anchor point. If applicable, 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/GHS: All Materials and chemicals used on-site will have Safety Data Sheets (SDS) provided before being brought onsite. Safety Data Sheets shall be available to all workers onsite for review.
- All SDS shall be readily accessible.
- SDS will be kept on file in Consigli Field Office
- Labeling of materials will match the identifier on the SDS.
- All workers will receive training as a part of their orientation as to the location of the SDS.
** Please review chapter 20 for additional details. **
Fire Protection: When hot-work is required the Consigli hot work permit program will be implemented. During the JSA process, alternative methods shall be reviewed to reduce the need for hot work activities. The hot work program will be be coordinated through Consigli Construction and Falmouth Fire Department (if needed.) The Consigli “Hot Work Permit” will be completed prior to the start of any hot work. All hot work will stop 60 minutes before the regular end of the day work stoppage. A fire watch, equipped with a 10lb dry chemical extinguisher, will be used as necessary during hot work activities.
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. 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. 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. When existing power is used, a GFCI “pigtail” shall be added to the receptacle if not already equipped. No live electrical work will be conducted.
**Review Chapter 26 for more detail**
Cranes: Crane use is expected on this project. From “boom truck” delivery cranes to hydraulic cranes for steel erection and mechanical equipment, there will be cranes used for the work. 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 all 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. 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 Commonwealth of MA.
4. All underground vaults and existing utilities will be identified before any crane is set up and their location shown on the crane lift plan.
5. Documented rigging equipment inspections.
6. Documented daily crane inspections filed with CCC weekly.
7. Documented rigger and hand signalman training will be provided.

Asbestos: Aside from utility tie-ins, no existing manmade structures are expected to be disturbed during the completion of this project.
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
Lead: Not expected. Consigli workers who will need to perform work on painted surfaces may need to disturb lead in 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 possess 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
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 activities 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. 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 **
Mold: Mold issues are not anticipated to be prevalent on this project, however if mold is discovered or water enters the construction space, the Consigli water infiltration and mold remediation policy will be implemented and followed.
** Please review chapter 22 for additional details **
Noise: All operations must be coordinated with the Consigli Superintendent to limit any excess noise impact on the surrounding areas. All activities and tasks which may cause loud noise will be monitored and neighbors will be notified of locations and dates/times of potential elevated noise levels.
** Please review chapter 29 for additional details **
Exposure to the Public, Staff, and Visitors: 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.
Fraternization between construction employees and project owners, staff, 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
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 project teams (Supers, PM, APM, PE, OPM, Architect, Owners, etc..) will be provided with $5 Dunkin Donut gift cards (or similar) 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 three times 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 up meetings. 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 will meet with the subcontractors prior to the commencement of their work scope and review the safety and logistics requirements of the project. The project team shall be an integrated mix of owner, architect, engineer and Consigli Construction personnel. If, after reviewing programs, Job Safety Analysis, and meeting with the affected individuals, the team is satisfied with the risk control direction, personnel will be permitted to begin work.
