Emergency Response and Rescue
In the event of an emergency the following policy will be adhered to for the safe evacuation of the Project. An immediate call will be made to 911. Project information for the call is – 155 North Beacon St , Brighton MA. (Note: If calling from a cell phone you will be reaching the State Police and not the local emergency response)
A Consigli representative will be dispatched to the Main entrance of the site (or work area, as necessary) to meet the responding Emergency Personnel and advise the individual in charge of the location of any chemicals or hazardous substances that may be present on any of the floors. Safety Data Sheets will be provided if needed by the Fire Dept.
In the event of a serious injury requiring the assistance of EMS the injured worker will be kept as comfortable as possible. Emergency first aid, if necessary, will be administered. Under no circumstances will the injured person be moved unless the worker’s life is in danger because of fire or calamity. A worker will be assigned to meet the medical personnel at the above location to direct them to the location of incident.
In the event an evacuation is required all personnel at this job site will follow the building/site evacuation plan and meet at the designated Muster Point located on the corner of Life St and the back alley- North East corner of the building. (see evac). The foreman for each company will meet at that location and take a head count of their staff and report to Consigli Superintendent. If for some reason a worker is unaccounted for, the fire department will be notified of the last location where the worker was observed.

Site Safety Plan
Scope of Proposed Operations: The project will begin in March 2023 and will end in January 2026. Project hours will be between 7:00am and 3:30pm Monday through Friday. There will be roughly 150– 250
workers at the height of construction.
Work will commence with the abatement and demolition of the existing building located at the plot of land. This will entail extensive enabling, cut and cap, make safe, and will require careful coordination with the city of Boston.
Slurry wall foundation walls will be installed on the site, followed by bulk excavation. Parking garage will be installed using up/down excavation processes.
The new building will be build of structural steel, and curtain wall façade systems. The current scope of work is a core shell only score.
GL Only OCIP: This project will be wrapped into a General Liability- Owner Controlled Insurance Program. All subcontractors will be required to submit enrollment documentation to the insurance administrator. All subcontractors will be required to adhere to all OCIP safety policies and requirements. Consigli will staff a full time safety manager who will be responsible for enforcing OCIP compliance, along with all other team members. Consigli will coordinate insurance inspections with all OCIP representatives.
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, jobsite gym); 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 CCC 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 Appendix?? (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 and other CCC projects to prevent reoccurrence.
Contractor Orientation: All workers on-site must complete the Consigli site orientation training by watching a video and displaying the orientation sticker on their hardhat once orientation is complete.
Identify the specific route in and out of the construction site (Traffic Management): Main construction access will be restricted to routes pre-determined by Consigli. All contractors will be responsible for adhering to CCC restrictions and regulations in regard to driving and delivering materials. All material and debris will process through the laydown yard located at the entrance of the project. Students, staff and visitors will be given the right of way at all times. Parking will not be provided
Designated work hours (any work outside these hours must have prior CCC approval): All work shall take place during business hours, 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.
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 spay painted Red are not to be touched and 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.
- A plumber will be responsible for confirming that all Gas service to the building has been adequately cut and capped by Eversouce.
- Baseline air samples will be conducted by an IH in part of a fugitive dust prevention plan. This will also include frequent and regular air sampling around the projects fence line to assure dust emissions are adequately controlled.
- The demo subcontractor will be responsible for conducting an engineering survey of the building to be demoed prior to work beginning.
- All dust control methods will be the responsibility of the demolition subcontractor.
Noise: Noise exposure will be a concern, so all operations must be coordinated with the Consigli Superintendent to limit any excess noise impact on the surrounding areas. All activities that create loud noises are to be coordinated with Consigli and Ownership. This and other noise restrictions will be shared with each worker during site orientation.
** Please review chapter 29 for additional details.
Exposure to the Visitors, Staff, and Students: During all phases of construction, the buildings and pedestrian walkways in the surrounding area will be open and occupied. Access routes used by the workers for moving materials and debris will be communicated to the workers and updated as needed. At no time is any worker allowed to enter any of the adjacent occupied building/spaces unless they have received approval from CCC. Non-fraternization with staff, visitors or students will be stressed with all subcontractor personnel during orientations.
Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA): An AHA/JHA depending on level of hazard shall be conducted for each identifiable feature of work to be performed. The AHA/JHA shall be submitted to Consigli superintendent/supervisor. AHA/JHA shall be reviewed weekly, signed by all workers including their supervisor, with all involved personnel performing that particular task.

Asbestos: Hazardous Materials report has been prepared and is in the field office and is available for review at any time. Asbestos has been identified in the following but not limited to white window glazing associated with exterior of all windows, black mastic associated with flooring in breakroom. This does not mean it is not present or could be found at a later date or location. 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 Asbestos free, they shall notify their supervisor immediately. A complete list of 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. ACM that will need to be abated will be done so by a MA licensed asbestos contractor.
- This list and complete Hazardous Materials Report will be available on site all times.
It is the responsibility of all subcontractor foremen to share this report with their respective workers.
Lead: A hazardous material report has not been completed by the owner. All existing painted surfaces will be presumed lead containing. A Haz Mat report which will be in the field office and available for review. A TCLP will be required to be produced by the demolition sub that meets a representative sample of the debris being thrown in the dumpster.
- All subcontractors will be required to perform exposure assessments for any planned tasks on painted surfaces identified as having lead paint…
- Any work on lead paint related building components (stairway rails) will require workers to have lead awareness training before any work is done.
- Consigli workers may need to perform work on the original Building surfaces. They 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, Sawzall’s, hand wrenches crowbars, hammers, and other hand tools.
- Consigli construction does possess historical data to show that drilling, sawing, light demo, installation of hangers, hanging sheetrock, fastening and carpentry do not put the employee above the action level. Despite this, additional monitoring may be done if needed.
- Consigli or subcontractor workers performing activities other than those listed above must be monitored to insure they are not being exposed to a hazard.
- Consigli employees will be provided with Tyvek suits and gloves at their request.
- If paint flakes or dust is generated from lead paint, then the area must be cleaned using HEPA vacuums or wet washing using TSP. Areas should not be dry swept. They may be swept using a sweeping compound as long as lead dust is not made airborne and other methods are infeasible.
- Workers who contact potential lead paint or other contaminated surfaces should use proper hand and face washing procedures prior to eating, drinking, smoking, chewing tobacco, chewing gum, or applying cosmetics. A hand wash station will be established and maintained for the project duration.
- Subcontractor foremen are responsible for reviewing hazmat reports with their employees and ensuring their compliance with the safety rules. All workers on this project must have completed Lead awareness training prior to starting on this project.
- A hand wash station will be established and maintained for the project duration.
Silica: 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.
There will be no dry cutting of any masonry material allowed; if water cannot be used then a dustless vacuum system consisting of HEPA dustless vacuum system will be used. Prior to the project going full scale an exposure assessment of a worker grinding and cutting masonry while using the HEPA system an exposure assessment will be done so as to establish the silica exposure level. No respirators will be issued without the express consent of the Consigli Safety department. Nuisance mask like an N95 if used will be on a voluntary basis and at no time will these types of masks 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.
** Please review chapter 22 for additional details.
PCB’s (POLYCHLORINATED biphenyl): The analytical results of the caulking in the buildings for PCBs show one result less than the regulatory limit of 50 parts per million (ppm). Results less than 50 ppm may be categorized as Excluded PCB Product (provided they meet the definition in 40 CFR 761.3). Results in excess of 50 ppm total PCBs are categorized as PCB Bulk Product Waste (per 40 CFR 761.3) and are regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act. If any worker comes across a material, he/she cannot confirm as PCB free, they shall notify their supervisor immediately. If PCBs 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. Light ballast that are not labeled “NO PBC’s” will be considered PCB containing, 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. A hand wash station will be established and maintained for the project duration.
Mercury: All fluorescent lamps 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 and 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.
Exposure to the Visitors, Staff and Public: During all phases of construction pedestrian walkways around the project will be open and occupied. Some areas of project will be opened for construction at different times. Any pedestrian walkway under any type of scaffold or overhead hazard will be provided with overhead protection. At no time is any worker allowed to enter any of the adjacent buildings.
Fraternization between construction employees and project owners, staff, students or visitors will not be permitted. Loud and profane language or clothing with offensive language will not be allowed on the jobsite. Extra efforts must be made to keep noise to a minimum
Additional Controls: Prior to start of any work, all personnel involved in the project, including project managers must be:
- Trained and orientated by Consigli Construction. Stickers will be issued and displayed on hard hats.
- Additional badging (if required) completed, accordingly.
- Receive covid 19 & flu shot and show proof of completion (if required)
Planning: The project team will meet with the Governors Academy Facilities and Environmental Safety & Health (EHS) staff before the project start to review any site-specific safety and health requirements. The project team shall be an integrated mix of owner, architect, engineer, and Consigli Construction personnel.
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 our projects. Members from the CCC and MH project teams (Supers, PM, APM, PE, OPM, Architect, Owners, etc..) will be provided with 5$ MH cafeteria gift certificates 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.
