Site Safety Plan
Scope of Proposed Operations: The proposed development is part of the Allston LabWorks development which is situated at 280 Western Avenue. The site currently consists of multiple buildings and parcels associated with outdated industrial and auto-related uses. The site will be developed into two separate buildings, 280 Western Avenue and 280 Western Avenue. The proposed building at 280 Western Avenue will be six-stories and will host approximately 259,000 square feet of research laboratory and office use. The building at 280 Western Avenue will five to six-story building will host 35 residential units, and retail, restaurant, fitness etc. space on the ground floor. The project site is bound by Western Avenue to the north, Riverdale Street to the east, residential houses and Westford Street to the south and a parking lot for the Century Bank building to the west.
Phase I will include the use of excavators, dump trucks and other supporting equipment to prepare the site for construction and to demolish the existing site features. To provide a safe working environment.
Phase II involves excavation and the installation of the support of excavation on the site. To complete this phase, excavators, dump trucks and other supporting equipment will be required. The construction fencing, construction gates, signage and staging area will remain from Phase I.
Phase III consists of the installation of roadway utility connections within Western Avenue. To complete this phase, material delivery trucks and other supporting equipment will be used.
Phase IV involves forming and pouring of the concrete foundation. To complete this phase, concrete pumps, concrete trucks and other supporting equipment will be required. The construction fencing, construction gates, signage and staging area will remain from Phase II.
Phase V involves the erection of the building’s structure. To complete this phase, mobile cranes, material delivery trucks and other supporting equipment will be used. The construction fencing, construction gate, signage and staging area will remain from Phase VI
Phase VI involves the installation of the building’s exterior façade and the interior fit-out features. Delivery trucks, boom lifts, and other supporting equipment will be used to complete this phase of construction. The construction fence, gate, signage and staging area will be the same as phase V
Phase VII involves the hardscaping of landscaping of the site. Delivery trucks and other supporting equipment will be used to complete this phase of construction. The construction fence, gate, signage and staging area will be the same as phase VI and cones will be setup around the northeastern and northwestern corners of the site for the installation of the curb and proposed wheelchair ramps.
CCIP: This project is structured as a Contractor controlled insurance policy for all subcontractors other than demolition, abatement, and site work scopes. Other scopes may be excluded at the discretion of the policy manager. This policy will entail the following:
Drug testing for all on site employees- Pre employment and post accident
Full time safety coverage from CCC
Additional items will be added to this plan as they are communicated to Consigli Construction.
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-up stretch program); 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): Main construction access will be restricted to routes pre-determined by Consigli. All contractors will be responsible for adhering to Boston and Consigli restrictions and regulations regarding driving, parking and delivering materials. Pedestrians will be given the right of way at all times. There is no parking allowed on the project.
Construction Air Quality: Construction activities will potentially generate fugitive dust, which could result in localized increase in airborne particulate levels. Fugitive emissions from construction activities will depend upon a multitude of factors such as ambient humidity, recent weather patterns, and phase of construction.
To mitigate dust emissions, the CM and all site related contractors will be utilizing the following measures:
• Wetting agents will be used regularly to control and suppress dust that may come from exposed
excavations, chipping, sawing, etc.
• All trucks for transportation of construction debris will be tarped and their wheels will be cleaned
(if trucks ever leave an asphalt surface). No storage of construction debris will be allowed on site, other than in Dumpsters, which will be
tarped over during non-working hours.
• Construction practices will be monitored to ensure that unnecessary transfers and mechanical
disturbances of loose materials are minimized and that any emissions of dust are negligible.
• Street cleaning shall be provided on an as needed basis.
• During heavy demolition phase, removal of windows will be held off as late as possible to help contain dust inside the building.
• OSHA Silica Guidelines will be followed for all dust creating activities.
• Compliance with the above-mentioned dust control measures will be monitored during daily safety walks performed by the site superintendent, as well as the safety manager. Conditions will be reported daily. Any required adjustments will be communicated to field personnel during daily foreman meetings.
Designated work hours (any work outside these hours must have prior CCC approval): Project hours are to be 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM, Monday through Friday. Off-hours work must be scheduled with the CCC Superintendent in advance.
Life Safety: A detailed fire protection plan and NFPA 241 plan has been developed with input from Consigli, Code Red, and the building owner. All impairments to existing life safety systems will be correctly permitted and coordinated with the building manager and the Boston Fire Department.
Any penetration through smoke and fire walls for new plumbing or electrical circuits necessitates:
- Smoke and fire wall penetrations shall not be left unattended.
- All penetrations are sealed by the end of each work shift.
Notification of Automatic Sprinkler System or Fire Alarm system shall be to:
- Consigli Fire Protection Program Manager
- Boston Fire Dept.
- All shut downs shall have a dedicated fire watch.
If it will be necessary to erect hard wall partitions in corridors adjacent to the work space:
- All affected occupants shall be notified of corridor width reduction.
- All occupants shall be aware of primary and secondary routes of egress.
- Additional egress signage shall be posted.
- Corridor storage is prohibited.
Job Safety Analysis (JSA) A JSA shall be conducted for each identifiable feature of work to be performed. The JSA shall be submitted to Consigli superintendent/supervisor. The JSA shall be reviewed Daily, signed by all workers including their supervisor, with all involved personnel performing that particular task.
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
Fall Protection: Project fall exposures include any work on the roof, material hoist and scaffold erection, exterior demolition and new installation, mechanical shafts, and any work on the existing balconies. All work over 6 feet requires some form of fall protection in accordance with CCC fall protection policy. All fall protection for work preformed on Scaffold will be needed at a height of 6 feet or greater. All scaffold erectors will maintain the ability to have fall protection by donning a harness and lanyard at all times during erection. 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 four times the intended load). Covers will stay in place until the hole/penetration has been filled. Building perimeters (to be protected with cable guard rail system with turnbuckles to be installed for all straight runs and any straight run over 100 feet. Before any work is to begin on the roof it must be determined what method of fall protection will be implemented (fall protection plan, 100% tie off, guard rails, flagging etc.) All workers working on a roof with a slope greater than 4 to 1 and exposed to a fall greater than 6 feet will be tied off 100% of the time spent in this location. Workers on a roof with a slope less than 4 to 1 may put flagging (six feet for roofers-15 feet for everyone else) lines up, whenever roofers and any other trade are on the same roof then the flagging must be pulled back to the maximum distance. 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 2x the intended axle load). Covers will stay in place until the hole/penetration has been filled with duct or Pipe riser which extends above the deck.

Environmental Emergency Contact and Management Response
Consigli identified Emergency Response Subcontractor:
Name: Cyn Environmental Services, Inc.(800)242-5818
Asbestos: Asbestos has been identified in the building. Asbestos abatement will be completed by a licensed/certified contractor. Asbestos has been found in the planned work areas. The complete table and “List of Materials tested, Quantities, and Locations” can be found with the hazardous material report. 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.
IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ALL SUBCONTRACTOR FOREMEN TO REVIEW THE HAZARDOUS MATERIAL REPORT & CORRESPONDING ABATEMENT REPORT WITH THEIR WORKERS. A copy of the hazardous Material/abatement report will be on site at all times and available to anyone request it.
Due to the fact that some asbestos may remain in place and not be abated during construction all workers will need to have at a minimum Asbestos awareness training.
All work and disposal will be done in compliance with state and federal regulations and standards
Lead: For renovation projects, all painted surfaces both interior and exterior of the existing must be considered lead containing, unless tested and show as otherwise. Consigli workers who will need to perform work on these painted surfaces 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 by all subcontractors for all tasks prior to when the full scale of this work is to take place. This does not mean that lead 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 workers on this must have completed Lead Awareness training prior to starting on this project. Hand wash stations will be provided to ensure proper hygiene during the project. An exposure assessment will also be done for any task which will disturb any lead containing material.
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; and 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 mask be issued to the workers.
Polychlorinated Biphenyl’s (PCBs): At this time there are no activities which are planned which would disturb any surface with suspect amounts of PCB’s. This does not mean that regulated levels of PCB’s 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.
Light ballast unless labeled “No PCB’S” will be designated 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 the building owner. All other inquiries or locations in regards to PCB containing material can be located in the Hazardous Material survey. If identified on any of the materials to be impacted, PCB‘s will be abated. Any and all PCB remediation will be performed by a licensed /qualified contractor
** Please review chapter 29 for additional details
Freon/Glycol: All Freon/Glycol materials will be removed from equipment and stored per manufacturer’s recommendations before it is disturbed, moved or removed. 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.
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
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 and tasks which may cause loud noise will be monitored.
** Please review chapter 29 for additional details
Exposure to the Visitors, Neighbors, and Occupants: Consigli will provide temporary barricades and other forms of protection required to protect the general public from injury due to construction activities. Contractors must provide all temporary barriers necessary to protect adjacent areas from dust, noise, etc.
Fraternization between construction employees and project owners, staff, 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
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. An approved BTD Construction Management Plan is available upon request.
Exposure to Street Traffic: All deliveries will be made at a designated location unless otherwise directed by Superintendent. Their will be exposure to live vehicular traffic and 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 worker will complete mandatory drug screening.
The SDS sheets associated with any hazardous substances to be used will be maintained by the superintendent in a marked three ring binder.
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 and throughout the site.
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 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 up’s. 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.
Management: Program implementation and management will be measured in Predictive Solutions Monthly Management Audit. Loss related exposures will involve, cuts, scrapes, and strains related to window and roof material installations. Controls will involve use of gloves and materials handling equipment. Fall protection related hazards will be limited to working on 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.

(CCCI), and all subcontractors (“Parties”) to the CCCI Contractor Controlled Insurance Program(CCIP) for the major construction project at Archer/ Donahue 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 CCCI project, is inconsistent with a safe, healthy and productive work environment.
This Substance Abuse Program (“the Program”) is established by CCCI in response to the directive as recited above and supersedes any pre-existing ·programs.
CCCI project managers on the project covered by the CCIP will require that this Program be applied to all Contractor-employed personnel working on the project site and to all applicants for such positions.
The intention of this Program is to establish the Allston LabWorks 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 CCCI 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 CCCI 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 CCCI 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 CCCI 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.
I. Allston LabWorks PROJECT WORKERS/JOB APPLICANTS
- Prior to commencing work, all Allston LabWorks 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 Allston LabWorks 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 Allston LabWorks construction 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 Allston LabWorks 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 Allston LabWorks 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
II. ACTIVE EMPLOYEES
1.Disciplinary Rules: This Allston LabWorks 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. Allston LabWorks Project’s disciplinary rules for drug related conduct will be as follows:
- Possession of illegal drugs on the job or in a job status – Permanent bar from the project.
- Use of illegal drugs on the job or in a job status – Permanent bar from the project
- 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
- 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 Allston LabWorks 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 Allston LabWorks 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 Allston LabWorks Project.
- 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 Allston LabWorks Project that recreational use or abuse of prescription drugs will be treated the same as use of illegal drugs.
- 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:
- Pre-Placement / Pre-Employment.
- 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 Allston LabWorks Residences 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.
- 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, 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). 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.
III. DRUGS TO BE TESTED AND TEST PROCEDURES
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 Allston LabWorks Project’s Safety Manager.
- 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.
- Pre-employment analysis will test for the following drugs. The threshold level for a positive test for each drug is as indicated:
Description Screening Level Confirmation Level

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.
- 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 Allston LabWorks Project at its expense. The laboratory shall endeavor to notify the employee/applicant and the Allston LabWorks 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.
- 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 Allston LabWorks Construction Manager to establish, in any case arising from a positive test result, that the appropriate chain of custody has been maintained.
- Employees must execute any documentation necessary to release report of test results to the Allston LabWorks Project Safety Manager.
