Site Specific Safety and Health Program

4650 Broadway

4650 Broadway New York, NY  10034

Project # 2550                                           



Emergency Response Plan


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); Training (Integrating sub-contractors into the Consigli Safety Culture); 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.  


This Emergency Response Plan (E.R.P.) is specifically developed for Consigli’s work associated with Silverstein Properties at 4650 Broadway, project # 2550.  The project takes place on a vacant lot, which was formerly the location of a parking garage.    


The construction site is located at 4650 Broadway New York, NY  10034.  The site is in an urban neighborhood.  It is surrounded by residential buildings.  The buildings adjacent to the site are strictly residential, though some as you get further form the site have ground floor retail spaces.

Site Safety Plan

A Consigli designated individual shall wait at the entrance to the work area to escort Emergency Services personnel as they arrive.

Scope of Proposed Operations: This site specific safety plan will cover new construction work as abatement and demolition work has been completed.  The job is expected to start in April, 2022.  The construction schedule has a duration of 30 months.  The project consists of the construction of a new residential building made up of a lower podium section that takes up the majority of the existing lot.  There will be a slimmer tower section above the podium.   

The project will be devised into several phases of work.  The first phase will consist of excavation, pile driving, and foundation installation.  Once they are complete, the project will move into superstructure phase.  During superstructure, formwork and rebar will be installed and concrete will be placed.  As superstructure continues, MEP trades will begin roughing in HVAC, electrical, plumbing and sprinkler systems.  The exterior wall system will begin being installed.  The elevator installation will begin during this phase.

Once the building is topped off, the roof will be installed.  The interior program will begin including drywall installation, tape and paint.  Flooring and tile will be installed.  Mechanical and electrical equipment will be installed.

At its peak, the project will have approximately 250-300 workers representing different trades.  The installation of the fence and signage will precede any active work on site.  Pedestrian walkways will be established using plastic barricades as part of the fence installation. 

COVID-19:  There is a site-specific COVID-19 safety plan developed for this job.  It is available upon request.  The covid plan has and will be modified as new information becomes available in order to protect the health and welfare of everyone on site.

Adjacent Properties:  At no point should any person from the public enter the site/building for any reason.  In order to ensure this, all entrances to the project will be secured.  Should an employee be approached by non-project personnel, Consigli should be notified immediately.  All egress and travel paths to the work area are to remain open and unimpeded at all times. Any challenge with coordination of deliveries/load out shall be brought to Consigli’s attention.

Identify the specific route in and out of the construction site (Traffic Management): For this project, all deliveries and waste removal will be moved via the designated truck route, which may be subject to change and be coordinated with the Consigli Superintendent.  All deliveries shall be scheduled in advance.  Flaggers will be utilized as needed in order to control the flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic.  

Personnel Protective Equipment (PPE):  All workers will wear hard hats, high visibility shirts/vests, and safety glasses at all times.  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. 

Designated work hours (any work outside these hours must have prior Consigli approval):  Most work shall take place during regular business hours of, Monday – Friday 7:00am to 6:00 pm.  Any work which may need to take place outside of these hours will need to be approved by the Consigli Superintendent after coordination with the building manager.  A valid AHV must be obtained from the NYC DOB for any work taking place outside of these hours.  Deliveries must be coordinated with the Consigli superintendent, with at least 48 hours’ notice. 

Shutdowns:  Shutdowns must be coordinated with the Consigli superintendent.  Depending on the nature of the shutdown, they may occur off-hours.    

Evacuation Plan (RACE, and Routes of Egress): Please refer to the Evacuation Plan attached.  All employees shall attend the Project Safety Orientation.  At the orientation, workers will be made aware of the evacuation plan, the muster point, and general safety rules and regulations.  Workers will also present Consigli with any applicable training documentation.  The orientation verification, along with copies of training documents will be filed on site and entered into the electronic orientation log. 

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 Manager 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:

• Your location (4650 Broadway, New York, NY  10034) phone number, and name:

• 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 any and all operations.  Said plan is to be reviewed with all involved personnel performing that particular task, signed by all workers, including their supervisor, and filed on site.  The purpose of the PTP/JSA is to discuss the work ahead for the day, ensure the availability of tools, equipment, and material, and convey the safe work plan to all workers on site. 

Fall Protection: All workers exposed to a fall of 6′ or greater shall be protected by guardrails, safety nets, or personal 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 or ½” steel) which will be secured and marked with high visibility paint (cover must be able to withstand two times the maximum intended load).  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.

**Review Chapter 13 for more detail

Work on Ladders: All work on step ladders/straight ladders will be done correctly per manufacturer’s recommendations.  Ladders must be inspected and be found in good condition before use.  Step ladders will not be used as a form of access to a walking/ working level.  Also, all straight ladders will be secured when installed for use.

 Scaffold and Elevated Work Platforms:  All scaffolding shall be inspected daily, by a competent person designated by each contractor, before each shift. Scaffold inspections shall be documented on installed scaffold tags.  Said Scaffold Inspection Tags shall be located at the stair tower/access point to each scaffold section.  A scaffold inspection guide will be provided to each designated person by Consigli to aid them with their inspection, which must be turned in after the inspection is completed.  For baker scaffolds, tags and inspection checklists are not required, though competent person inspection is still required.  Fall protection is required at all times during erection/dismantling operations if workers are exposed to a fall of 6’ or greater.  All workers using a scaffold must possess documentation of training.

It is anticipated that scaffolds will be used by the mason.  The podium exterior masonry is expected to be completed with the use of a supported scaffold, while the tower is anticipated to be completed using suspended scaffolds. 

Scissor lifts:  Area and ground conditions in the intended work area will be inspected for suitability.  Scissor lifts shall be inspected daily before each shift by the subcontractor using it.  Inspection shall be documented on a scissor lift inspection form.  Subcontractor employees performing work from a lift shall provide documented proof of training.  Workers shall be tied off at all times when using a scissor lift!!

Haz Com/Global Harmonization:  All contractors bringing materials/chemicals on site shall provide Safety Data Sheets to the Consigli project team.

  • SDS sheets shall be kept on file in Consigli Construction’s project office
  • All SDS sheets shall be readily accessible.

Fire Protection: All fire protection and hot work will conform to the Fire Code as well as all applicable codes and regulations.  When on site, compressed gases and fuel will be housed in the appropriate cage/cabinet.  On a daily basis, any spark producing tool or work practice will require an internal hot work permit.  This will be obtained from the Consigli Superintendent.  Once hot work has ceased for the day and fire watch has been completed, the permit will be closed for the day by returning the permit.

Electrical: The electrician will be responsible for all temp power and any temp lighting that may be needed.  They will coordinate all lock out tag out procedures regarding electricity.  All electrical tools, cords and equipment must be in good working order. To that end, all electrical tools and components must be visually checked on a daily basis.  Any tools with damaged cords must be taken out service immediately.  All cords must be equipped with a ground pin.   Flat three wire cords are not allowed.  Only SJO and SJT, or other similarly rated cords, shall be used.  Subcontractors will be responsible for task lighting in the event that lighting above the OSHA standard is required for a particular work task.  The electrician will coordinate all lock out tag out procedures.  GFCI will be tested by the electrical contractor to assure proper function with a log filed with Consigli on a monthly basis.  Any live work will be conducted in accordance with NFPA 70E, though the need to work live is not anticipated.

Confined Space:  Any work in what may be considered a confined space shall be discussed with Consigli prior to the prosecution of said work.  Any work in a permit required confined space shall require training for workers involved with the entry, a permit, air monitoring, constant ventilation, and a non-entry retrieval system.  The permit will be closed out when the entry supervisor assures that all workers have exited the space.  The permit shall be returned to Consigli. 

** Please review chapter 21 for additional details.  

Designated First Aid Plan: Incidents shall be reported within 24 hours.  Each subcontractor is required to have a fully stocked first aid kit for use by their employees.

Restricted Areas:  Contractors are prohibited from entering the adjacent buildings unless work has been previously authorized and scheduled.  Only designated workers will be allowed into the adjacent buildings, no exceptions.

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 Consigli Superintendent a minimum of 48 hours in advance.  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.

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 cannot be used, then a HEPA dustless vacuum system shall be used.  An exposure assessment shall be required of any worker involved in any activity not covered by table 1 of the OSHA Silica regulations for construction.  An exposure assessment will also be required for any activities covered by table 1 if the engineering controls listed in same are not followed. 

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.

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 NY.  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.  All equipment must be inspected daily and a copy of the inspection turned in to Consigli at least on a weekly basis.  Any subcontractor using heavy equipment shall have a spill kit of adequate size on site in the event of any leaks or spills.

Exposure to the Visitor: All visitors will sign a visitor’s waiver prior to accessing the site.  Visitors shall be required to wear PPE while on site. The work area shall remain secure at all times.

Planning:  The project team, as well as Consigli 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 superintendent, project manager, safety department, and the foreman and project manager from the subcontractor.  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. 

Orientation:  Prior to accessing the job site, workers shall participate in the Consigli Orientation program.  At the orientation, workers shall present their credentials (SST cards, OSHA cards, certifications of fitness, aerial/scissor lift training cards, rigging/signal cards, etc.).  Consigli shall take copies of same for records.  Workers will then be issued an individually numbered orientation sticker, which will be affixed to the workers’ hard hat. 

Crane:  Cranes will be used at various times on the project.  They will be used during concrete operations to load the building with rebar and formwork, but also to remove debris from the building.  They will also be used to lift dunnage steel and mechanical/electrical equipment to the roof.  Cranes require design drawings as well as an on site engineering review of the set up location.  Inspections must be completed as per the manufacturer.  Swing radius protection is required.  The crane operator and riggers must be properly credentialed and provide documentation of same.  All crane picks shall take place according to the crane drawings as it relates to load capacity and reach.  The load path must be kept clear.  No workers may be exposed to an overhead load.
