Site Safety Plan
Project Specific Loss Exposures and Controls
Scope of Proposed Operations: The 74 Middlesex Ave Project will be a life science building for Greystar that is set to begin the summer of 2021. The project will be broken up into several phases and the finish product will be the structural core and exterior components of a building. Currently (5/14/2021) the tenant finishes are not under contract.
The parcel of land that will be developed has a small chain of retail stores that will be demolished. After demolition, foundation support of excavation will begin. The SOE will be a slurry wall which has a series of cross brace elements to support the walls during excavation of soil, roughly 30’ below grade.
After excavation, the building frame will be tied into the foundation and erected. The structure will be made of a steel frame that will rise from 3 levels below grade to 17 levels above ground. The steel will be erected using 2 tower cranes and connected with conventional ironwork.
The mechanical elements of electrical, plumbing and mechanical HVAC as well as a curtainwall will follow closely behind the structural erection. The project will be ready for tenant phases of construction in 2023.
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.
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.
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.
Workers of any subcontractor to CCC will be subject to drug testing for reasonable suspicion, post incident and/or insurance requirements for pre employment.
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): 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. Cut level 6 gloves are recommended at all times.

Back– End of Site Safety Plan
Environmental Emergency Contact and Management Response
Environmental Issues: A hazardous material report was created for this project by the person listed below. This report will be on site at all times and available for review at any time.
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.
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 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.
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.
