2831 – 184 Middle St
- Complete interior and exterior renovation of a historic building located in downtown Portland. Exterior façade work includes restoration of the existing masonry, replacement of all windows as well as the removal of the existing roof structure to allow for new installation Interior renovations include full demolition of architectural finishes. Hazardous abatement activities are included in the scope of work. New interior partitions, flooring, ceilings and MEPs are included to finish the project for use an extended stay rental property. A small amount of work is included in 4 Canal to modify existing emergency egress stairs for use by this building. The retail space will be completely demolished of all interior architectural features and brought up to a white box finish for fit up by the tenant.
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 describe how they are managed through a comprehensive Safety and Health Program. This site-specific safety plan will work in conjunction with the Consigli Safety Program as well as all applicable Somerville requirements.
Contractor Orientation: Upon arrival of all site crew members completion of the Consigli Construction site orientation, that will review all elements of the Consigli Safety Program, is required. Once all orientation and initial training is completed Consigli hardhat stickers will be issued.
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.) Weekly Predictive Solutions inspections will be uploaded to SCOPE; 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.
Logistics/Access/Traffic Management: Main construction access will be restricted to routes pre-determined by the owner, City of Portland, and Consigli. All contractors will be responsible for adhering to City restrictions and regulations in regard to driving, parking and delivering materials. Strict adherence to posted speed limits and parking locations is required. Pedestrians will be given the right of way at all times. Parking will be very limited and designated in pre-determined contractor parking locations and reviewed during orientation. Pedestrian access must be kept clear.
Material delivery to floors 2-5 will be done via material hoist set up on north side of project. Only trained individuals will be allowed to operate hoist.
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 and the Project Management team.
Job Safety Analysis (JSA): A Job Safety Analysis (JSA) shall be conducted for each identifiable feature of work to be performed. The JSA shall be submitted to Consigli superintendent/supervisor. At a minimum the JSA shall be reviewed weekly. More frequent review shall be necessary as tasks change. The JSA shall be reviewed with all involved personnel performing that particular task and signed by all workers including their supervisor.
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 Appendix N (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.
Excavations: Excavations will be required for utility work and/or landscaping. All required permitting will be obtained before any excavating is to begin. If necessary, tabulated data/engineering for shoring and shielding systems will be obtained and available on site at all times when in use. All excavations will be inspected by a competent person on a daily basis. Written excavation inspections will be done if the excavation exceeds 5’.
- Dig Safe Notification/utility locator – number/report will be posted in office
- City or Town permit requirements (DPW & Town Hall) if needed.
- Copies of soil engineering and tabulated data sheets for all trench boxes or other shoring/shielding systems brought on site will be provided to CCC and be kept in construction office
**Review Chapter 19 for more detail
Demolition: The scope of demolition for this phase is extensive. With the removal of some building façade as well as removal of drywall, framing, windows and doors, section of floor, interior walls and concrete repairs.
Prior to the start of demo operations, the contractor preforming demo will confirm that all utilities leading into the area have been made safe (cut/cap.) The electrician (utility) will disconnect and lock out all electrical, the plumber (DPW) will do the same with any plumbing lines, and the HVAC subcontractor will do the same on the HVAC piping and duct work. Lock out tag out will be reviewed during the pre-construction safety meetings to assure disconnect and responsibility for protection of existing utilities is safe for any construction activities to commence.
In spaces where some electrical or mechanical must remain live, a color coding system will be utilized for easy identification of live utilities that must stay active and utilities that must be removed. Any and all utilities spray painted (or otherwise marked) Red are not to be touched and are need to be protected during all operations. Utilities spray painted Green are to be removed as part of the selective demolition process only after lock-out/tag-out has been confirmed and utilities tested. If any utilities are unmarked, they shall be considered live until they are marked. Any existing walls shall be removed using hand tools until investigation shows what mechanical systems are present behind the wall. The demo contractor will be responsible for completing CCC demo checklist prior to the start of any work in their target areas.
Fall Protection: All workers exposed to a fall of 6′ or greater shall be protected by guardrails safety nets or personnel fall arrest systems. Fall protection required activities shall include, but are not limited to, steel erection (roof steel dunnage), leading edge work, roof framing, roofing installation, and exterior finishes. Holes greater than 2” will be covered with acceptable material (3/4 plywood ½ steel) which will be secured and marked hole and capable of supporting 2x the intended load (cover must be able to withstand 2x times 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. Building perimeters and mezzanine leading edges shall be protected with cable guard rail system with turnbuckles to be installed for all straight runs and any straight run.
The existing roof is flat. Before any work is to begin on the roof, it must be determined what method of fall protection will be implemented. All workers working on a roof with a slope greater than 4 to 1 and exposed to a fall greater than 6 feet will have fall protection 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. All material will need to be kept a minimum of 6’ from the roof edge, any materials that may be blown off of the roof shall be secured/weighted down.
The use of Safety Monitors is not permitted!!!
**Review Chapter 13 for more detail
Work on Ladders: All work on step ladders/straight ladders will be done correctly per manufacturer’s recommendations. Any worker who is on a step/straight ladder and could be exposed to a fall greater than the height of their work on the ladder (i.e. working by an open window or at a balcony edge.) will be required to utilize personal fall arrest system (PFAS) secure to structure overhead. 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. Only ladders with a rating Type 1A or 1AA will be allowed on Consigli projects. Ladders use shall be reviewed in the JSA with alternative methods (scaffold, lift, etc.) considered to reduce hazards associated with ladder use.
Scaffold and elevated work platforms: All scaffolds, supported frame, pipe staging and aerial lift platforms will be inspected daily before each shift by a competent person designated by each individual contractor who will be using it, which will be documented on posted inspection tags, or, in the case of lifts, on the inspection checklist. A scaffold checklist will be provided by CCC to each subcontractors designated persons to aid them with their daily inspection. All contractors who will be erect scaffold will provide CCC with certification/Qualification of scaffold erection training as well as an erection/dismantling plan. Fall protection is required 100% during erection/dismantling. Overhead protection will be provided for all access points at any buildings which are located under any form of scaffolding. At a minimum, fall protection is required at 6’ on all scaffolds on Consigli projects. It is anticipated that a rolling “baker” style scaffold may be used on this project. For mobile scaffolds on Consigli projects, the rules are stricter: guardrails are required at 4’. Mobile scaffolds with a work platform set at a height to base ratio greater than two to one will require outriggers. Mobile scaffolds must have the wheels locked when in use.
** Please review chapter 14 for additional details.
Aerial/Scissor Lifts: When lifts are to be used onsite, the area, slab, and/or ground conditions, in the intended work area, will be inspected for overhead power lines, sink holes, covers, or any other unsafe conditions which cause an unsafe incident. Scissor lift use is fully expected on the 3rd floor. Aerial/scissor lifts will be inspected daily before each shift by a competent person designated. All who will be performing work from an aerial/scissor lift will show documented proof of training prior to using the lift. This training will be documented with the workers orientation paperwork. Fall protection is required in the form of a PFAS is required in all aerial and scissor lifts and will be attached to the manufacturers prescribed anchor point. If applicable, steel plates or equipment mats will be placed on the ground above any utility/ steam tunnel if there will be Aerial lifts operating on them. Workers will be tied off at all times when using an aerial lift.
Chemical and Materials/GHS: All Materials and chemicals used on-site will have Safety Data Sheets (SDS) provided before being brought onsite. Safety Data Sheets shall be available to all workers onsite for review.
- All SDS shall be readily accessible.
- SDS will be kept on file in Consigli Field Office
- Labeling of materials will match the identifier on the SDS.
- All workers will receive training as a part of their orientation as to the location of the SDS.
** Please review chapter 20 for additional details.
Fire Protection: A NFPA 241 Plan has been created for both projects. No hot work will be allowed when sprinklers are shut off. See NFPA 241 plan by code red for details. When hot-work is required the Consigli hot work permit program will be implemented. During the Hot Work issuing process, alternative methods shall be reviewed to reduce the need for hot work activities. The hot work program will be be coordinated through Consigli Construction and Portland Fire (if needed.) The Consigli “Hot Work Permit” will be completed prior to the start of any hot work. All hot work will stop 60 minutes before the regular end of the day work stoppage. A fire watch, equipped with a 10lb dry chemical extinguisher, will be used as necessary during hot work activities.
Flammables will not be stored inside the building or left overnight on the scaffold or in the building. All combustible or flammable materials will be stored in an appropriately rated lockable cabinet located no closer than 50 feet from the nearest structure. Fire extinguishers will be provided for every 3000 square feet. They will be installed on job made stands and conspicuously located throughout. They will be part of the daily inspection with extinguisher log completed monthly. All penetrations leading outside of the construction area will be fire stopped using approved fire rated material prior to the end of each shift.
**Review Chapter 17 for more detail.
Electrical: 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 or damaged cords must be taken out service… All cords must be equipped with a ground pin, flat three wire cords are not allowed. SJO and SJT or other similarly rated cords only shall be used. The electrician will be responsible for all temp power and any temp lighting that may be needed. All temporary power for the project will be installed on protected and dedicated circuits with 100% GFCI protection. GFCI will be tested by the electric contractor weekly to assure proper function with a log book filed with CCC monthly. When existing power is used, a GFCI “pigtail” shall be added to the receptacle if not already equipped. No live electrical work will be conducted.
**Review Chapter 26 for more detail
Cranes: Crane use is expected on this project. From “boom truck” delivery cranes, hydraulic cranes for mechanical equipment, roof material, there will be cranes used for the work. Cranes will require independent annual 3rd party inspections and will be utilized for operation only after detailed lift plans are submitted. It is anticipated that these cranes will all be hydraulic. In the event that a lattice boom crane is utilized, or in the case of the tower crane, then the crane must get an on-site 3rd party inspection once the crane is assembled, prior to operation.
There is a requirement to assure that certified riggers, signalmen, and crane assemblymen are utilized. All picks are to be done by a licensed operator. As previously mentioned, a detailed pick plan will be required to assure that no picks are critical in nature. Critical picks are defined as those involving 2 cranes lifting simultaneously, a pick that is over 75% of capacity, a pick that involves the lifting of a man basket, or any other lift that is deemed to involve special conditions. Location and set up will be reviewed with crane operator prior to set up and pick. All lifting operations will require that the operator and any involved contractors follow the steps listed below as well as in CCC Crane Safety policy.
1. All Hoisting equipment will have an up to date 3rd party inspection certificate with the equipment which will be copied and filed in the office trailer.
2. All lattice boom cranes will have an independent 3rd party inspection completed each time one is set up on the project, after assembly and prior to operation.
3. All equipment operators will be required to have in their possession all appropriate licensing and training as required by OSHA and the Commonwealth of MA.
4. All underground vaults and existing utilities will be identified before any crane is set up and their location shown on the crane lift plan.
5. Documented rigging equipment inspections.
6. Documented daily crane inspections filed with CCC weekly.
7. Documented rigger and hand signalman training will be provided.

Asbestos: A Hazardous Materials report has been prepared by the owner (Haley Ward Report Dated 11/22/2022) all hazardous material will be abated prior to work commencing in affected areas (demolition.) Asbestos was found:
• Black damp proofing on interior of brick, 5th floor;
• 9”x9” gray floor tile
• Tan box sheet flooring
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 HAZOUDOS 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 who requests it.
All work and disposal will be done in compliance with state and federal regulations and standards.
Lead: Lead base paint was identified on the interior and exterior surfaces, see report.
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.
** Please review chapter 29 for additional details
IAQ (indoor air quality): During construction adjacent to any occupied areas, 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 Industrial Hygienist. Hard and or 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. If a hard barrier cannot be set up set up due to an unforeseen condition or emergency, a 6-mil poly barrier will then be used. This will only be allowed after approval from CCC Superintendent.
** Please review chapter 29 for additional details
Freon/Glycol: All Freon/Glycol materials will be removed (if needed) 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 or water enters the construction space, the Consigli water infiltration and mold remediation policy will be implemented and followed.
** Please review chapter 22 for additional details
Noise: 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 and neighbors will be notified of locations and dates/times of potential elevated noise levels.
** Please review chapter 29 for additional details
Exposure to the Public, Staff, and Visitors:
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, 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.
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 project teams (Supers, PM, APM, PE, OPM, Architect, Owners, etc..) will be provided with $5 Dunkin Donut gift cards (or similar) 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 three times 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 meetings. 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.
Planning: The project team will meet with the subcontractors prior to the commencement of their work scope and review the safety and logistics requirements of the project. The project team shall be an integrated mix of owner, architect, engineer and Consigli Construction personnel. If, after reviewing programs, Job Safety Analysis, and meeting with the affected individuals, the team is satisfied with the risk control direction, personnel will be permitted to begin work.
