Project Specific Loss Exposures and Controls
Scope of Proposed Operations: Alexandria Real Estate is proposing to restore the historic 41 Linskey Way Building. Consigli has been contracted to do the core/ shell. The project will begin in May 2022, and will run until May 2023. Work will include masonry restoration of the exterior design. Window replacement, installation of a 2,500 sq/ft addition, and some core shell mechanical upgrades.
A hazardous materials report has been written to identify hazardous building materials such as asbestos or lead.
Adjacent Properties: 41 Linskey Way sits on the corner of First and Binney at a very busy intersection. Pedestrian sidewalks will remain open directly out front of the building. It is expected that employees from the project will not interact with adjacent properties or pedestrians in any way. Should an employee be approached by non-project personnel Consigli should be notified immediately.
All egress and travel paths to either building are to remain open and unimpeded at all times. Any challenge with coordination shall be brought to Consigli’s attention.
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.
Identify the specific route in and out of the construction site (Traffic Management): For this project all deliveries and waste removal shall enter using the designated entrance which may be subject to change and be coordinated with the Consigli Superintendent. 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. Because of Site Work and Parking lot construction coordination with Jeff will be crucial.
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 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, at least 48 hours’ notice.
Evacuation Plan (RACE, and Routes of Egress): Please refer to the Evacuation Plans below. All Consigli employees shall attend the Project Safety Orientation. Consigli Construction’s Job Safety Manager will conduct a safety orientation talk to each employee and subcontractor to site specific fire safety protocols.
Emergency Management Response: In the event of an Emergency the construction workers shall leave the building immediately. Point of assembly/muster shall be as defined in the attached Evacuation plan. 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.
When reporting an emergency, please provide the following: This information will be outlined to employees during the orientation process. See next page.
• Your location (41 Linksey Way Cambridge, MA) phone number, and name: First St Park
• The location of the incident (building, floor and room number);
• Nature and extent of the incident (injury, accident, spill, smoke/fire, damage, etc.);
• The name and amount of the material spilled (if applicable); and
• The safest route to the spill (if applicable).
** Please review chapter 8 for additional details.
Pre-task Plans: Pre-task Plans or Job Safety Analyses shall be conducted prior to all and any operation. Said plan to be reviewed initially with all involved personnel performing that particular task, signed by all workers, including their supervisor, and filed on site.
Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA): An AHA, depending on level of hazard, shall be conducted for each identifiable feature of work to be performed. The AHA shall be submitted to Consigli superintendent for review. AHA’s shall be reviewed with all personnel weekly and shall be signed by all involved personnel performing that particular task, including their supervisor.
Excavations: 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 always when said systems are in use. All excavations will be inspected by a competent person daily. Written excavation inspections will be done if the excavation exceeds 5’.
- Dig Safe Notification – dig safe number will be obtained and posted in the site office.
- Jackie’s Law (520CMR 14.00) will be strictly adhered to and permits must be obtained. A copy will be posted in construction office.
- Copies of shoring 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.

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 workers exposed to a fall of 6′ or greater shall be protected by guardrails, safety nets, or personnel fall arrest systems. This includes, but is not limited to, steel erection, roofing, scaffold erection and dismantling, overhand brick laying and pre-cast concrete related work. Holes greater than 2” will be covered with acceptable material (3/4 plywood ½ steel) which will be secured and marked hole (cover must be able to withstand two times the intended load). Covers will stay in place until the hole/penetration has been filled. Building perimeters will be protected with some form of fall protection if fall is greater them 6 feet. Cable guard rail systems (if used) will be provided with turnbuckles installed for all straight runs and any straight run over 100 feet in length. Holes greater than 2” will be covered with acceptable material (3/4 plywood ½ steel) which will be secured and marked hole. Covers will stay in place until the hole/penetration has been filled. At no time are cross braces on scaffold allowed to be used as fall protection. The use of safety Monitors is prohibited.

Designated First Aid Plan: Consigli Construction shall follow Site Safety Plan for first Aid. A list of first aid/CPR trained people shall be posted on site. Report any incidents to the Safety Director.
Lean Requirements: No materials shall be delivered to the site earlier than 3 days before said materials are to be installed/put into place. If materials have to be delivered before that 3 day time period, subcontractor shall get prior approval from Consigli Superintendent. Because of this, notification / scheduling is required for all deliveries to the site. Subcontractors must notify Contractor at least 24 hours in advance. Contractor has the right to refuse any deliveries not properly scheduled or due to logistical constraints as necessary. All subcontractors delivered materials shall be placed on wheeled carts, wheeled racks or in wheeled bins so as to necessitate easy relocation in the event materials need to be moved. Carts, racks, or dollies shall not exceed manufacturers intended weight loads. Materials/tools can be delivered and stored on pallets only if pallet jacks are delivered simultaneously with said delivery to provide for ready mobility. Additionally, pallet jacks need to remain in immediate area. Each subcontractor will need to supply their own pallet jacks for their own materials and keep their pallet jack within reasonable distance at all times. All work stations shall be provided with wheeled trash bins for immediate placement of all debris produced as a part of the subcontractor’s operations.
All trash will be immediately placed in wheeled containers provided by Consigli. All subcontractors shall use rubber wheeled carts when moving material or removing trash from a building. . No trash or materials shall be left on the floor. Subcontractors shall, where feasible, elevate all electrical extension cords, hoses, or cables – removing them from all walking/working surfaces. Electrical Cords, when elevated shall be supported or suspended in a manner that does not subject them to damage. Storage of delivered materials in cardboard containers shall be discouraged. When materials must stay in cardboard containers, said containers shall be removed from the projects immediately after product is unpacked.
Subcontractor will participate in schedule development meetings as required by Consigli
Restricted Areas: Contractors are prohibited from entering adjacent occupied areas unless work has been previously authorized and scheduled. Only designated workers will be allowed into the occupied areas. No exceptions.
Steel Erection: Iron workers will be required to use fall protection at 6′. Consigli will release documentation when column footings reach 75% of breaking strength. The steel erection sub will be required to submit a detailed erection sequencing plan that illustrates crane locations and capacity of cranes at those locations. Decks will only be turned over for general use after they have undergone an inspection by a member of the CCC safety department.
The steel erection sub will be required to submit a detailed erection sequencing plan that illustrates crane locations and capacity of cranes at those locations. Fall protection will be determined for connectors after pre-construction meeting with sub is held. Fall protection will be required at 6’, at all times during steel erection
Once decking is complete and all required fall protection is installed, CCC will walk the area with the steel erection subcontractor. Provided all required elements of fall protection are in place, CCC will complete and give a copy of the “custody of fall protection” form to the steel erection subcontractor. Maintenance and overall responsibility of the fall protection system in place will fall to CCC at that point in time.
Materials Management: Getting materials into and out of the project will be a challenge that needs to be adequately planned. All deliveries are to be scheduled with the CCC Superintendent. A comprehensive Activity Hazard Analysis shall be done on all materials that will be hoisted and placed into or on the building. Only materials which will be used/installed in a reasonable amount of time will be delivered to the site. Attention must be paid to structural analysis in regards to loading of existing floors with material and equipment.

Environmental Emergency Contact and Management Response
Environmental Issues: A hazardous material report has been created for the project by the company listed above. This report will be on site at all times and available for review at any time.
A copy of the hazardous material report will be made available on site upon request. Due to various pre-existing conditions of the lot trace amounts of lead cells have been identified. A further comprehensive analysis is being performed on relevant hazards the work force may be exposed to.
Lead Paint: All paint located on the 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.
Asbestos: IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ALL SUBCONTRACTOR FOREMEN TO REVIEW THE HAZARDOUS MATERIAL REPORT WITH THEIR WORKERS.
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.

All florescent bulbs removed during renovation will be collected, stored properly on site and giving to Stoughton High School 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 shall be used. An exposure assessment shall be required of any worker involved initially in grinding, demoing or cutting masonry so as to establish the silica exposure level. No respirators will be issued without the express consent of the Consigli Safety department. Nuisance mask like an N95, if used, will be on a voluntary basis and at no time will these types of mask be issued to the workers.
Mold: Mold issues are not anticipated to be prevalent on this project, however if mold is discovered Consigli’s mold remediation policy will be implemented and followed.
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.
