Site Safety Plan

Project Specific Loss Exposures and Controls

Scope of Proposed Operations: The Boynton Gateway Project will be a life science building for Columbia Trust that is set to begin January 2022, and complete May 2024. The project will be broken up into several phases and the finish product will be the structural core and exterior components of a building. Lab core/ shell space. The Tenant Improvements are not under contract.

The parcel of land that will be developed has existing buildings to be demolished. After demolition, foundation support of excavation will begin. The SOE will be sheet pile construction which has a series of cross brace elements to support the walls during excavation of soil, roughly two stories below grade.

After excavation, the building frame will be tied into the foundation and erected. The structure will consist of structural steel, and unitized curtain wall. The steel will be erected using a tower crane and connected with conventional ironwork. The mechanical elements of electrical, plumbing and mechanical HVAC will follow closely behind the structural erection. 

The building will consist of nine stories, and two mechanical floors; also will include 2 levels of below grade parking.

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.

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.

CCIP: This project will be run under a Contractor Controlled Insurance Program (CCIP).  Consigli will assume the risk of the project by incorporating contractors into this insurance program.  Contractors with an EMR (Experience Modification Rating) above 1.01 will be required to have bi-monthly 3rd party safety inspections completed and copied to Consigli. Any company with an EMR over 1.20 must have a full time dedicated safety representative on-site at all times. Any contractor with an EMR over 1.25 must be approved by Consigli Safety Director prior to being contracted to work on-site.  Furthermore, any contractor with 30 or more workers on-site must have a full time dedicated safety reprehensive on-site.  Some contractors may be excluded from the CCIP enrollment.  See Appendix J and the CCIP Manual for more information.

Drug/Substance Abuse Testing: Consigli and  all  subcontractors (“Parties”) to the Consigli Contractor Controlled Insurance Program(CCIP) for the major construction project will participate  in a Drug-Free Workplace Program, (the “Program”) which states that the use of illegal drugs or the abuse of alcohol, prescription or controlled substances on or off duty by persons working on/employed, or seeking employment, on this Consigli project, is inconsistent with a safe, healthy and productive work environment.

This Substance Abuse Program (“the Program”) is established by Consigli in response to the directive as recited above and supersedes any pre-existing ·programs.

Consigli project managers on the project covered by the CCIP will require that this Program be applied to all Contractor and Subcontractor-employed personnel working on the project site and to all applicants for such positions.

The intention of this Program is to establish the project as a drug and alcohol free workplace with due regard for the personal privacy interests of project employees.  It is not the intention of Consigli project managers to intrude on off-duty activities of project employees away from the project site, unless those activities have a job-related impact.  The circumstances permitting alcohol and drug testing on the project have been carefully defined. The Consigli project managers will retain oversight over the Program and will monitor test procedures for consistency and policy compliance.

The Parties acknowledge and agree on the importance of appropriate education, assistance, and treatment for all employees to combat the potential or actual influence of illegal/controlled drugs and alcohol.   The Parties therefore encourage the utilization of the educational, assistance and treatment programs which have been established by Unions and/or Contractors as an important component of the overall Substance Abuse Program on Project sites.

The Consigli Construction Substance Abuse Program establishes minimum standards of testing on a consistent, standardized basis for the safety, productivity and economy of all parties and personnel working on this project. · The Program will apply to all project workers, employees and applicants for employment on this covered project site and to all project Contractors at all tiers. The Construction Manager Consigli will regularly review with all Parties concerned the effective implementation and enforcement of the Program, and will require appropriate action by any and all Parties who are not fully committed to and involved in the application of the Program.

This Program shall be subordinate to the Department of Transportation Regulations or any other federal or state drug testing mandates which shall prevail and apply only to those classes of employees and applicants subject to the mandatory drug test regulations currently in effect, as amended or established in the future by the Federal Highway Administration, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Research and Special Programs Administrative of the Department of Transportation or any other federal or state agency with appropriate jurisdiction.

**See the end of this Site Specific Safety and Health program for a copy of the actual Substance Abuse Testing program

Post Incident Review: Any 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 our 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 to prevent reoccurrence.

Harassment/ Workplace Violence: Consigli has a strict “Anti-Retaliation” policy regarding the reporting of accidents, harassment or work place violence.  No one has the right to retaliate against employees for reporting workplace injuries, illnesses, violence or harassment. Should any retaliation be observed or witnessed at any time the Consigli shall be immediately notified.  

Workplace Violence: Consigli has a zero-tolerance policy for any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, bullying, graffiti, or other threatening disruptive behavior that occurs at the project.  Said behavior is grounds for immediate dismissal from the project.  Any employee or project worker who believes he or she has been subjected to any violation of the above shall immediately report said violation to the Consigli Project Superintendent.

Harassment: Consigli has a zero-tolerance policy for any kind of harassment including, but not limited to, race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy) sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, age, physical or mental disability that occurs on any Consigli Project.  Additionally, graffiti of any type, anywhere on a Consigli project is not acceptable. Said behavior is to be reported immediately to the Consigli superintendent and is cause for immediate dismissal from the project. 

If an employee believes he or she has been subjected to any violation of any of the above General Conduct Policy, he or she is to contact the project Superintendent listed in this Safety Orientation documentation 

Covid 19: As a condition of employment, all personnel are required to comply with CCC Covid 19 policy and procedures. Covid 19 plan will be reviewed along with the orientation and CCC Covid 19 protocols will be reviewed every day by all workers

IAQ (indoor air quality): If at any time during this project that work activities take place in an occupied building 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. This plan will ensure that adjoining areas have not been contaminated during abatement, demolition, and construction. Fire rated 6 mil poly 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. All equipment used on the inside to the building will be equipped with a scrubber or be of tier 4 type. Constant CO monitoring will be required if combustible engine is operated indoors.  Negative air machines will also be used to create a negative air flow into the workspace to ensure that no dust and debris enter non-construction areas. Kleen sweep will be used at all times whenever sweeping is required. HEPA Vacs will be the only type vacuums allowed on site. Engineering controls will be taken to eliminate dust on site.

Services:  Any compromises to building services during the work performed will be handled accordingly 

  • Adjacent work spaces shall be notified before all work that may compromise daily work task.
  • During weekly project meetings, if needed upcoming work that may compromise building services shall be talked about with facility managers and scheduled for off shift if the group decides critical building services will be compromised.
  • The on-site superintendent shall make weekly contact with all adjacent staff for the duration of the project.

Identify the specific route in and out of the construction site (Traffic Management): For this project, all deliveries and waste removal shall enter using designated access point and be coordinated with the general contractor. Also, only permitted truck routes will be used, all contractors will be responsible for adhering to truck routes and restrictions plan which will be made available to all sub-contractors.

All gates will be labeled with a specific indicator for necessary identification purposed.

Personnel Protective Equipment (PPE): Per CCIP requirements- all workers will wear hard hats and safety glasses at all times. High visibility vests or shirts will be worn at all times. All personnel shall be required to wear gloves that are appropriate to the task. Cut level 6 gloves are recommended, and required for all Consigli/ Riggs employees.  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.

  • Failure to meet Consigli PPE policy will result in the stoppage of work and/or fines.

Designated work hours (any work outside these hours must have prior CCC approval):  All 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.

Emergency Management Response: In the event of an Emergency the construction workers shall leave the building immediately. Point of assembly/muster shall be located next to the field office (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.

Environmental Emergency Contact and Management Response


Environmental Issues: A hazardous material report was created for this project. (Soil Characterization) This report will be on site at all times and available for review at any time.

Lead Paint: All existing paint located on building exterior/interior will be classified as containing lead. Consigli workers may need to disturb this 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 prior to the work taking place. 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.


Hazardous Materials report has been prepared by the building owner is located in the field office and is available for review at any time. A complete list of suspect 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. 

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. This Hazardous Materials Report will be available on site all times.  

 All asbestos containing material will be fully removed by a licensed and regulate contractor under an asbestos removal plan which must be submitted and approved, all abatement work will be completed by a licensed Asbestos abatement contractor. All disposals will be done in compliance with State and Federal Regulations. Any worker who discovers any suspect material which cannot be confirmed as non-asbestos containing based on the Hazardous Materials Report shall immediately notify CCC superintendent who will then secure the area (if needed) and have the suspect material tested and treated as needed. 

Polychlorinated Biphenyl’s (PCBs): The initial inspection indicates that none of the materials to be impacted are suspect to contain regulated PCB concentrations >50ppm. 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. If PCB’s are found in existing finishes.   All suspect PCB containing finishes which test for more than 50 ppm it will be considered PCB containing material and will be disposed of in accordance with all local, state, and federal regulations. At no time shall a worker disturb any material he/she can not readily identify.  If they come across a material, he/she cannot confirm as PCB free, they shall notify their supervisor immediately. If PCB’s are found in existing finishes 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.

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 CCC and owner.

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 the owner so as to be recycled or disposed of properly.

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:  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 not be used then a dustless vacuum system consisting of a HEPA dustless vacuum system will be used in conjunction with an exposure assessment if table 1 cannot be complied with. Prior to the project going full scale an exposure assessment of a worker grinding, demolition, and cutting masonry while using HEPA system will be done so as to establish the silica exposure level if water cannot be used to eliminate or table 1 complied with.  No respirators will be issued to CCC workers 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. 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.

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.

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. Interior work will take place between 7pm -3am. 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

Equipment issues:  All operators will be required to have in their possession all appropriate licensing and training as required by OSHA and the State of Mass.  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 operator’s manual as well as an extinguisher with it at all times.

Exposure to the Visitors, Staff and Patients: During all phases of this project the building will be unoccupied.  Access will be limited to the areas of the building in which work is taking place. 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.  At no time is any worker allowed to enter any of the buildings in which they are not scheduled to work in…  Non-fraternization with 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 the 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.  Deliveries will be coordinated with CCC. If there will be exposure to live vehicular traffic, then police details will be used when required. All speed limits will be obeyed, and deliveries will be made as to not coincide with other scheduled deliveries. . All traffic control signage (if needed) will meet CCC and town requirements before being installed.  Coordination with CCC 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.

Utility Exposures There are overhead powerlines adjacent to the project. These lines will be insulated/ protected prior to work beginning. All utilities entering the site will be marked prior to the start of demolition. Written notification of this work will be provided to CCC prior to commencement of Demolition work. 

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 stat of any work, all personnel involved in the project, including project managers must be:

1. Trained and orientated by Consigli Construction.  Stickers will be issued and displayed on hard hats

2. All workers will provide Consigli with an OSHA 10 card.

3. All CCC worker will complete mandatory drug screening prior to employment.

The SDS sheets associated with any hazardous substances to be used will be maintained by the superintendent in a marked three ring binder or stored electrically on Procore.

Preconstruction surveying of all adjacent structures is being managed by ownership prior to work taking place on site- this includes ongoing seismic monitoring. 

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 owner project team (Supers, PM, APM, PE,OPM, Architect, Owners, etc..) will be provided with $5 Dunkin Donut gift cards 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.

This plan may be updated reviewing budget and safety developments over the course of the project

Injury Management/Loss Control: Program implementation and management will be measured in Predictive Solutions Monthly Management Audit. Loss related exposures will involve cuts, scrapes, and strains is expected to be managed and prevented by each individual on the project.  Controls will involve use of gloves and materials handling equipment.  Fall protection related hazards will be but is not limited to working on steel beams, 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.

Substance Abuse Testing Program: THE POLICY


1.Prior to commencing work, all project workers, and job applicants for positions on the project will be required to satisfactorily complete a drug test, unless such applicant provides acceptable documentation that he/she has tested drug free within the preceding six months by a NIDA/SAMSHA certified laboratory. Specimens will be collected during in-processing on the Project site or at a designated off-site location and tests will be conducted in accordance with Section III, herein and the Project Substance Abuse Prevention Program Implementation Procedure.  Applicants who report to the in-processing site who display reasonable cause to suspect they may be impaired by alcohol may be subject to alcohol testing as set forth in Section III.

2. If the point of collection (POC) test results are inconclusive, the applicant will not be permitted access to the Project site, until test results have been verified in accordance with Section III-2.   If the POC test results are proven negative, the employee will be paid for orientation time as described below and will be paid straight time hours for the missed work on the project, provided the employee is not referred to or is not engaged on an alternate work assignment while test results are pending. If the applicant tests positive, he or she will be barred from this project. However, such applicants shall be paid two hours of straight time for participating in the orientation program. If participation in the orientation program requires more than two hours of the applicant’s time, such applicant shall be paid a maximum of four hours of straight time. There shall be no pyramiding of orientation time and missed work payments under this section.

3.Any applicant or conditional employee barred from this project under Section I-2 may be considered for reemployment on this project provided the employee satisfactorily completes a drug test conducted by a NIDA/SAMSHA certified laboratory or an approved drug rehabilitation program at the employee’s expense not less than sixty days following the initial disqualification.  Upon the successful completion of such a program, the applicant will be eligible for project employment providing, as a condition of continuing employment, the employee voluntarily agrees in writing to submit to substance testing, at the project manager’s request, for a period of six months.

4.Refusal on the part of any applicant to comply with the testing procedure will disqualify the applicant from consideration for employment on this CCIP until such time as the applicant certifies, in writing, a willingness to comply with this Program


1.Disciplinary Rules:  This project does recognize that employees have a right to privacy and that any adverse action taken against an employee for off-duty conduct shall take into account the employee’s right to privacy and the impact of the employee’s conduct on his/her job performance and job site safety.  The project’s disciplinary rules for drug related conduct will be as follows:

  1. Possession of illegal drugs on the job or in a job status – Permanent bar from the project.
  2. Use of illegal drugs on the job or in a job status – Permanent bar from the project
  3. Selling, aiding and abetting the sale or conspiring to sell illegal drugs or prescription drugs on the job or conviction for such activity off the job -Permanent bar from the project
  4. Bodily system presence of illegal drugs or alcohol on testing at a limit specified herein on the job -Immediate bar from the project.  The employee may be considered for reemployment on the project after sixty days and certification as drug or alcohol-free as confirmed by a NIDA/SAMSHA licensed laboratory or an approved drug rehabilitation program, provided that as a condition for reemployment on the project the employee agrees to be subject to testing at the request of the project’s project manager for a period of up to six months. Any second offense involving an on-the-job bodily system presence of illegal drugs or alcohol will result in a permanent bar from employment on the project.
  5. Possession, use or bodily system presence of prescription drugs without a valid prescription or alcohol on the job may result in a temporary or permanent project bar. The severity of the sanction will be determined on a case-by-case basis following investigation concerning the use of the drug. It is the intent of the project that recreational use or abuse of prescription drugs will be treated the same as use of illegal drugs.
  6. These disciplinary rules supplement and do not supersede other rules and regulations duly promulgated by any contractor. In no event shall the application of these rules or the use of illegal drugs or alcohol be construed as a defense to other employment related discipline.

2.Testing:  Employees will be subject to drug and alcohol testing only under the following circumstances:

  1.  Pre-Placement / Pre-Employment.  
  2. Post-Accident: Any employee who is directly involved in an accident on  the job site or in the course of job duties which involves use of vehicular equipment, heavy equipment, power tools or other dangerous instrumentality or working conditions and which results in a need for off­ site medical care or substantial property damage (generally in excess of $1000) shall be referred for a substance test. A substance test will not be required if the project safety manager, representative in consultation with others, determines that the employee did not contribute to the cause of the accident or could not have avoided it.  The test must be conducted by a NIDA/SAMSHA certified laboratory as soon as practical following the accident. Such test shall be undertaken prior to and as a condition of returning to work.
  3. Reasonable Cause:  A substance test may be required where there is reasonable cause to suspect that an employee has an in-system presence of intoxicants or drugs on the job or in a job status (such as on contractor or owner-provided transportation). An employee will not be tested under this paragraph unless employee conduct or other related circumstances provide a reasonable basis to believe that the employee may have ingested an intoxicating substance and/or is suffering from impairment of some sort while on the job site.   Such observation must be confirmed by a second member of Contractor supervision, or by a project manager’s representative, wherever possible.   For Contractors signatory to the Agreement, observation shall also be discussed with the Union steward, provided a steward is readily available.   Finally, before an employee is referred for reasonable cause testing, the action must be approved by a senior member of contractor management (above foreman/supervisor) or by a project safety representative. All management representatives responsible for making such observations and/or referrals shall be required to attend a Department  of  Transportation   (DOT) approved training program in order to be authorized to make such observations or referrals.

Employees removed from duty for post-accident


 testing will remain off-duty until test results are received. If the employee tests negatively, the employee will receive full back pay for the time missed. If the employee tests positively, the employee will be barred from the project effective the date and time of the specimen collection.  Any employee so barred will be eligible for consideration for reemployment on the project after a period of not less than sixty days.   Before being rehired, any such employee must pass a drug test conducted by a NIDA/SAMSHA certified laboratory at the employee’s expense and must agree, as a condition of reemployment, to submit to substance use testing at the CCIP project manager’s request, for a period of six months.


  1. Test Standards: Drugs to be tested, specimen collection, chain of custody and threshold and confirmation test levels shall comport with the Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Testing Programs established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Drug tests shall be conducted as described in Part III, 2 below.    Any alcohol testing will be conducted by devices and under procedures approved by Massachusetts law.

  • Test Procedures: Drug testing will be conducted in three phases by urine testing.

  1. Phase 1- Point of Collection (POC) Immunoassay Screen using the icup/instant test, or its equivalent. If the POC test is ”inconclusive”, the specimen shall be split and will be sent by overnight courier to a NIDA/SAMSHA laboratory for Phase 2 and Phase 3 testing if necessary.

  1. Phase 2 – Immunoassay screening and specimen integrity testing by EMIT or equivalent.  If the specimen is unacceptable, the employee or applicant will be requested to provide a fresh specimen. If the Phase 2 screen reads positive, it will be forwarded for Phase 3 confirmation testing.

  1. Phase 3 – Confirmation testing by Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS). Positive test results will be forwarded to the Medical Review Officer (MRO) to be reviewed with the specimen provider and reported to the 50 Rogers St Project’s Safety Manager.

  1. Alllaboratory testing shall be conducted only by laboratories licensed and certified by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and shall be conducted in accordance with the Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Testing Programs, as amended.

In the event that the Department of Health and Human Services changes the screen or confirmation threshold cutoffs or adds new drugs or procedures to the list of drugs to be tested and the prescribed test procedures, or the Commonwealth of Massachusetts amends the presumption levels for alcohol impairment, this policy shall be automatically amended to accommodate such change, addition or amendment.

  1. Retests: In the event of a positive result, there is an automatic confirmation test (GC/MS) performed by the drug testing laboratory at no cost to the employee. In addition, the drug test laboratory shall preserve a sufficient aliquot specimen as to permit independent confirmatory testing and follow-up retesting at the request of the employee or by the project at its expense.  The laboratory shall endeavor to notify the employee/applicant and the Safety Manager of positive test results within three working days after receipt of the specimen. The employee/employer may request a re-test within three working days from notice of a positive test result. Costs of re-tests will be paid in advance by the requesting party. In the event the initial test is proven to be a false positive, costs for any retests shall be reimbursed.
  2. The drug test laboratory and the specimen collection facility must establish and maintain a forensically acceptable chain of custody.   It will be the burden of Consigli Construction as the Construction Manager to establish, in any case arising from a positive test result, that the appropriate chain of custody has been maintained.
  3. Employees must execute any documentation necessary to release report of test results to the Project Safety Manager.  Failure to execute the appropriate release forms or to comply with testing procedures, (including adulteration of test specimens) will result in a permanent bar from the Project.
