Site Safety Plan
Scope of Proposed Operations: The new construction Douglas Gates Elementary School is a 180,000 SF, 3-Story Structural framed building with masonry, metal panel, and curtainwall façade. The new school is located immediately adjacent to the existing Gates School at 75 Spruce Street in Acton, MA. There will be a geothermal well field just North of the new building that will assist with the heating and cooling of the building. The school will have two gymnasiums, a cafetorium, media center, and house approximately 1300 students from Pre-school to 6th Grade. Once complete the existing Gates School and the Douglas School will be demolished making way for new parking lots and ball fields. The project is expected to take approximately 3 years to complete.
Phase 1 – Enabling During this phase, the existing Gates school East Wing will need to be demolished to make way for the new school, a temporary access roadway will need to be constructed, a new septic system will need to be installed, and a new parking lot and bus loop will need to be constructed and paved.
Phase 2 – Construction This phase will be the construction of the new Acton Boxborough Regional Douglas Gates Elementary School. New building made of concrete and steel structure with masonry walls. Crew will complete the structure of the building and the continue with interior and exterior finishes.
Phase 3 – Demolition of the Gates School and the Douglas School
Phase 4 – Construction of New Parking lots and Ball Fields.
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.
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. This site-specific safety plan is used as a project specific supplement to the Consigli Construction Safety Program.
Identify the specific route in/out of the construction site (Logistics Plan): For this project, all deliveries and waste removal shall be coordinated with Consigli. Due to activities of the existing school, deliveries may be staggered or blocked during certain times to accommodate bussing and school arrival/departure. All contractors will be responsible for adhering to truck routes and restrictions plan which will be made available to all sub-contractors. All workers will be CORI checked and obtain express permission from CCC prior to access any occupied sections of the building.
Sample Logistics Plan
Personnel Protective Equipment (PPE): All workers will wear hard hats and safety glasses at all times. High visibility vest will be worn when exposed to vehicular/equipment hazards/ traffic. All CCC personnel performing work with their hands shall be required to wear gloves that are appropriate to the task. When not performing actual work with their hands workers will be required to have them available for immediate use. Face shields will be required for all personnel who are performing overhead work, using metal chop saw or any type of metal grinding. All welders will be required to have hard hats with integral welding shields.
Designated work hours (any work outside these hours must have prior CCC approval): All material host related work shall take place during regular business hours of, 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. All deliveries must be coordinated with the CCC superintendent with at least 48 hours’ notice.
Evacuation Plan (RACE, and Routes of Egress): Please refer to the Evacuation Plans attached. All employees shall attend the Project Safety Orientation. Consigli Construction’s Job Supervisor will conduct a safety orientation talk to each employee and subcontractor to site specific fire safety protocols and evacuation plan and Muster Point. During the demolition phase, 2 Muster Point locations may be necessary with work happening at both Gates and Douglas schools.
Emergency Management Response: In the event of an Emergency the construction workers shall leave the building immediately. Point of assembly/muster shall be on the lawn in front of the access gates to the office trailer lot. (see evac). In the Event of a DISASTER, the Superintendent or Safety director shall instruct the construction workers to leave the site or remain in place and await further instruction. The following steps should be taken in the event of an emergency
When reporting an emergency, please provide the following:

Environmental Emergency Contact and Management Response
Environmental Issues: A hazardous material report was created for the Acton Boxborough Regional School District by the company listed below. This report will be on site at all times and available for review. As necessary, follow-up sampling and reporting may be required.
Universal Environmental Consultants
All painted surfaces will be considered lead Containing. Consigli workers who may need to disturb a lead containing 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 for any task on painted surfaces that has been identified as lead containing prior to the work being mass preformed. This does not mean that lead could not still be found in/on other surface/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. If at any time workers will need to work on the areas mentioned above, they will need to obtain Lead Awareness training. A hand wash station will be established and maintained for the project duration.
Asbestos: A complete list of ACMs and their location can be found in the hazardous material report which will be filed in the office and available for review at any time. A complete list of ACM and their location can be found in the hazardous material report which will be filed in the office and available for review at any time. ACM that will need to be abated will be done so by a MA licensed asbestos contractor.
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 HAZARDOUS MATERIAL REPORT & CORRESPONDING ABATEMENT PLAN WITH THEIR WORKERS. A copy of the hazardous Material report/abatement plan 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 asbestos abatement will be performed by a licensed Asbestos removal/abatement contractor.
Any asbestos removal will be done under the supervision of qualified personnel.
The asbestos removal plan (if needed) and Haz Mat report will be available for review. It is the responsibility of all subcontractor foremen to share this report with their respective workers.
All removal will be completed, prior to any one accessing said areas.
At no time, shall a worker disturb or move a material he/she cannot readily identify, if they discover such a material they must notify the Superintendent immediately.
Polychlorinated Biphenyl’s (PCBs):
All suspect PCB containing finishes which test for more than 50 ppm will be considered PCB containing material. It and all presumed to be containing PCB material and will be disposed of in accordance with all local, state and federal regulations.
Light ballast may be found to contain PCB’s, 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 town of Arlington. Any and all PCB remediation will be performed by a licensed /qualified contractor
A hand wash station will be established and maintained for the project duration.
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, stored properly on site and giving to town of Arlington as to be recycled or disposed of properly. Rubber flooring sampling was included in the hazardous materials report.
Freon/Glycol: All Freon/Glycol materials will be removed from equipment and stored per manufacturer’s recommendations before it is disturbed. 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.
Silica: An 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 a silica containing material while using the HEPA system an exposure assessment will be done so as to establish the silica exposure level.
Mold: Airborne mold was sampled in the existing school and results posted in the hazardous materials report. 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.
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 3:30pm; any contractor who may need to work late must first seek approval from the CCC Superintendent. Noise levels will be monitored if high levels of noise are found to exist or could be expected to assure that noise levels do not exceed acceptable OSHA levels. Consigli permissible noise policy and procedures will be followed.
IAQ (indoor air quality): Phases of this project will occur adjacent to an occupied building. During construction, an indoor air quality plan will be implemented. This plan will ensure that adjoining areas have not been contaminated during construction. The air will be tested for typical indicators such as but not limited to temperature, relative humidity, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, dust particulates and VOC’s (volatile organic compounds). Monitoring (frequency/duration) will be done in accordance with a written IAQ plan provided by a Certified Industrial Hygienist. Barriers will be set up between any work areas and occupied spaces prior to the start of any work. Negative air machines will also be used to create a negative air flow from the occupied space to ensure that no dust and debris enter an occupied area. If a hard barrier cannot be set up set up due to an unforeseen condition or emergency, a 6-mil poly barrier will then be used. This will only be allowed after approval from CCC Superintendent.
Substance Abuse: As a condition of employment, all CCC personnel are required to submit to a urinalysis test for determination of the presence of illegal substances. A positive result will disqualify the applicant for employment on this project.
Exposure to the Visitors, Students, Staff and Public: During all phases of construction, the existing building 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 means of access/emergency egress leading to or from the building which finds itself under any type of work will be provided with overhead protection. An emergency egress route through the job site will be established and maintained during construction. At no time is any worker allowed to enter any of the buildings in which they are not working in…Non-fraternization with students, staff, visitors or public will be stressed with all subcontractor personnel during orientations.
Adjacent Property: All steps will be taken to limit the effects of the project on the surrounding community. Special attention will be paid to each access point of each building so as not to impede access.
Exposure to Street Traffic: All deliveries will be made at a designated location unless otherwise directed by Superintendent. Their will be exposure to live vehicular traffic and police details will be used when required. All speed limits will be obeyed, and deliveries will be made as to not coincide with buildings scheduled deliveries. All traffic control signage (if needed) will meet town of Arlington of requirements before being installed. Coordination with them as well as its police will be required when any equipment will be set up/used in the street/parking lot. Fire department access will be maintained and kept open for emergency responders.
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.
Additional Controls: Prior to start of any work, all personnel involved in the project, including project managers must be:
- Complete a CORI check.
- Trained and orientated by Consigli Construction. Stickers will be issued and displayed on hard hats
- All workers will provide Consigli with an OSHA 10 card.
- All CCC worker will complete mandatory drug screening.
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 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.
Working Safely With COVID 19:
