Site Safety Plan
Scope of Proposed Operations: Project taking place at the Shields ASC that Consigli completed in 2017. This project includes: Replacement or Retrofitting of existing steam powered sterilization equipment, located in Sterilizer room and clean work area to accommodate new electric powered sterilization. Drywall, ceiling demo and replacement as needed.
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-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.
Site Access / Parking: There may be on-site parking permitted on-site. However, all companies should plan on making separate parking accommodations. The Consigli Superintendent will make all decisions regarding parking.
The main construction entrance will be located off of Main Street.
Demolition: 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 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
Fall Protection: All work over 6 feet will require some form of fall protection in accordance with Consigli fall protection policy. Workers engaged in structural steel erection shall have fall protection in place as well. The use of a CAZ and/or safety monitor is not permitted.
Holes greater than 2” will be covered with acceptable material (3/4” plywood or ½” steel) which will be secured and marked cover or hole (cover must be able to withstand four times the intended load). Covers will stay in place until the hole/penetration has been filled. 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.
Toe boards are required to be installed any time in which there is a risk for materials to be knocked off of an edge. These shall be installed per OSHA specifications.
**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 tie off. Step ladders will not be used as a form of access to a walking /working level, also all straight ladders will be tied off when installed for use. Only ladders with a rating Type 1A or 1AA will be allowed on Consigli projects.
Scaffold and elevated work platforms: If used, scaffolds will be inspected daily before each shift by a competent person designated by each contractor using it. The inspections will be documented on the Consigli inspection checklist. After inspecting, scaffold “tags” located at the access point to each scaffold will be initialed by representative subcontractor competent person. A scaffold checklist will be provided by CCC to the subcontractors’ designated persons to aid them with their inspection. This checklist will be filled out prior to the beginning of each shift and filed in the construction office. Overhead protection will be provided for any access points into the building.
** 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 causes the potential for an incident. Aerial and scissor lift platforms will be inspected daily before each shift by a competent person designated by each individual contractor who will be using it. All contractors who will be performing work from an aerial lift will show documented proof of training for all workers who will be using said lift. Workers will be tied off at all times when using an aerial lift.
Chemical and Materials: All Materials and chemicals used on-site will have a Safety Data Sheet (SDS)provided before being brought onsite.

Environmental Emergency Contact and Management Response
There are no known environmental contamination issues with the site. The site underwent some improvements recently. This is a new building with work occurring indoors.
Asbestos: (Not anticipated) A Hazardous Materials report will be reviewed prior to the commencement of any demolition and site activities. Any asbestos identified in the Hazardous Materials report will be abated and disposed of according to MA DEP regulations prior to other work being done.
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
Consigli’s identified Emergency Response Subcontractor;
Cyn Environmental Services, Inc. (781)341-1777
Lead: (Not Anticipated) An exposure assessment be performed before actual demolition activities of walls, ceilings and windows coated with lead based paint. Results of that exposure assessment will determine if the Action Level and PEL over an 8 hour period meet or exceed the OSHA Lead in construction Standard as expressed as a time weighted average.
Normally workers will need to perform work on these painted surfaces and may need to disturb paint by demolishing, drilling, sawing, fastening, or carpentry. In doing so they will use saws, drills, screw guns, impact wrenches, saw-zalls, hand wrenches, adzes, 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 to determine if the levels exceed OSHA PEL or action level guidelines.
Other companies/trades (who will impact lead surfaces) will need to perform their own exposure assessments. An exposure assessment will be done by all subcontractors for all tasks 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.
** Please review chapter 29 for additional details **
Silica: Any activity which can produce silica dust will use engineering controls to keep dust to a minimum. There will be no dry cutting of any masonry material allowed; if water can’t be used, then a 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 may 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 (N95), if used, will be on a voluntary basis.
Polychlorinated Biphenyl’s (PCBs): 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
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 the Consigli Superintendent to limit their impact on the surrounding areas. Normal working hours will be between 7:00 am and 3:30 pm Mon-Fri. Any contractor who may need to work late must first seek approval from the 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 **
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 **
Adjacent Property: All efforts will be made to ensure that property and roadways adjacent to the work, area remains un-impacted. It is anticipated that all work will be in the designated work areas within the site fence. Any deviation from that will require consultation with the Consigli Superintendent.
Exposure to Street Traffic: It is anticipated that all deliveries will be made by way of the main gate along Main St. A police detail will be positioned as necessary. All speed limits will be obeyed and deliveries will be made as to coincide with working hours. All traffic control signage will meet MUTCD requirements before being installed. Fire dept. access will be maintained and kept open for emergency responders.
Planning: The project team, as well as Consigli safety department, will meet with and 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. 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.
Site Orientation: All individuals working on this project will receive a comprehensive Safety Orientation which will cover all company safety rules regulations and procedures as well as communicating Consigli specific requirements.
