Emergency Response Plan
ALL EMERGENCIES SHOULD BE REPORTED BY CALLING Security- 617-674-7001
The following situations are considered emergency response actions and should be handled in accordance with the procedures outlined in this plan.
- Serious Injury/Fatalities
- Structural Damage/Collapse
- Weather or Geological Event
- Environmental Incident
- Utility Damage
- Illegal Activity
- Labor Problems
- Bomb Threats/Military Ordinance Unearthing/Acts of Terrorism
Life safety systems in the building will remain active. Smoke detectors in the working areas will be removed to avoid accidental alarms, and all sprinkler heads will be turned upward once ceiling grid has been removed. All CFD/ Pfizer impairment requirements will be followed for shutdowns, and sprinkler permits will be pulled prior to impacting any fire suppression systems.
In the event of an emergency the following policy will be adhered to for the safe evacuation of the Project.
An evacuation will be ordered for life threatening emergencies (collapse, explosion, fire). Person/persons discovering emergency shall take the following actions:
A Consigli representative will be dispatched to the front entrance to the project at the entrance of the building 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. SDS’s will be readily available if needed by the Cambridge Fire Dept.
In the event of a serious injury requiring the assistance of Pfizer Emergency Response Teams or Cambridge EMS the injured worker will be kept as comfortable as possible. Emergency first aid, if necessary, may be administered. Under no circumstances will the injured person be moved unless the worker’s life is in danger because of fire or calamity.
In the event an evacuation is required all personnel at this job site will assemble outside of the work area at the designated Muster Point at the grass park directly adjacent to the loading dock. The foreman for each company will meet at that location and take a count of their staff. If for some reason a worker is unaccounted for, the fire department will be notified of the last location where the worker was observed.
Incident reporting protocol– an incident report will be generated by Consigli super within 24 hours of the incident occurring, or once the scene has been stabilized. This will be completed and tracked using Quickbase, and will automatically distribute to CCC personnel upon completion. Once distributed, the original author will share with the following Pfizer personnel- Keisy Marquez, Alexandra Puglielli, Bob Clark, Patrick Lynch, Demetra Barlas, Greg Rexford
In line with Pfizer commitments and the philosophy of “Goal Zero,” 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 for Riggs Employees (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.
Roles and Responsibilities: It is understood that Consigli Construction will serve as the controlling entity for the 4th and 5th floor spaces that it is contracted to work in. This requires that the occupied space is made safe each and every day through extensive planning between Consigli, Pfizer, and all subcontractors on site. Consigli has very defined set of roles and responsibilities for each project team member in order to maintain a safe site from mobilization to demobilization. All project team members have the obligation, and authority to stop any unsafe acts taking place in the site.
For more information regarding roles and responsibilities please see Chapter 1 of the Consigli Corporate Safety Program.
Superintendent TIM BACKLIN: The superintendent is responsible for the jobsite 24/7. The superintendent supervises all work in the field and is responsible for ensuring that all tasks being performed have been adequately planned. This will include the implementation of the following SOPs:

- Construction safety inspections- Predictive Solutions
- Monthly Management Audits- Predictive Solutions
General Superintendent/ Project Executive, Dean Archambault and Erick Lacy: The GS, and PX serve as resources to the Consigli project team. They will attend safety meetings as needed, communicate with Pfizer personnel, and serve to hold the team accountable to the high standard of safety that Consigli Requires.
Site Orientation: All individuals working on this project including Pfizer personnel will receive a comprehensive Safety Orientation delivered by the Consigli Superintendent (TIM BACKLIN) which will cover Pfizer safety rules and procedures as well as communicating Consigli specific and Pfizer KSQ2 safety requirements. Site badging and Pfizer Online Contractor Orientation Course shall be completed by all workers, who will be working on site for greater than one week, and all subcontractor foremen, prior-to or as a part of the initial site orientation.
The Consigli Orientation is conducted daily, by the superintendent, and is required by all workers entering the project. It consists of two part: a general set of Consigli rules and policies to be followed (shown in the form of a video: link Below), and a site specific portion which is reviewed in person by the Consigli superintendent.
Once both parts are completed, the worker will scan a QR code which directs them to a Quickbase link where they will upload their name, contractor, hardhat sticker number, and any certifications required of them per Consigli, according to their trade.
A hardhat sticker will be given to each worker once orientation is complete, and the number on the sticker will correspond with the worker’s location in the Quickbase Orientation log
PLEAS REVIEW THE SITE SPEIFIC ORIENTATION ACCOMPANIING THIS PLAN.
All personnel working on site shall have a minimum of OSHA 10 Hour Construction Safety Outreach Training. Foremen are required to have an OSHA 30 Hour Construction Safety Outreach Training. Proof of training will be required during site orientation.
Policy Enforcement: All project personnel will be required to adhere to the OSHA 1926 Standard for Construction throughout their occupation on site. Because this is a minimum set of guidelines, the Consgili Safety and Health Program has added additional measures to ensure that workers are not exposed to hazards on the jobsite. Consigli goes above and beyond in the following Categories:
- Fall protection- 6 foot fall rule for all workers on site
- Hot work safety
- Electrical Safety
- Daily JSAs and Weekly Tool Box Talks
Please refer to the Consigli Safety and Health program for more Information
Because of the nature of the facility, Pfizer also has a Contractor Safety Handbook which will outline additional measures that will be required of all workers including but not limited to the following:
- Cut level 4 gloves required for all workers
- JHAs and Safe Work Permits for all tasks
- Hot work Safety
- Scissor Lift Safety
- Ladders Last Policy
- Lockout Tag out
- Noise cannot exceed 82 decibels over an 8 hour TWA
Please refer to the Pfizer Contractor Safety Manual for more information
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 Safety Analyses. The project team shall be an integrated mix of Pfizer, architect, engineer and Consigli Construction personnel. After reviewing the programs and meeting with the individual subcontractor, if the team is satisfied with the risk control direction, they will be permitted to begin work.
All required PPE will be worn at all times by all workers in the working space. This will be outlined in the specific JHA for each task.
See below PPE section within this plan
Site communication will be continuously provided with the use of Safety Boards posted onsite. These boards will contain necessary information for those entering the site to work as well as visitors to the site. Emergency information and contacts will be available on the jobsite Safety Boards as well.
Site Safety Inspections: A site Safety Inspection will be completed by a Safety Professional of the Consigli Safety Department on the site (minimum) weekly. Pfizer EH&S and Project Management will be notified prior to these inspections to allow them to be available to join the walkthrough. These inspections will be copied to the Pfizer EH&S staff (Alexandra Puglielli) Cambridge_EHS@pfizer.com in the form of an emailed report. In addition to the weekly safety walks, each job site will receive a management compliance review on a monthly basis. During the management review, safety managers will evaluate administrative safety paperwork for compliance.
SEE APPENDIX I OF THE CONSIGI SAFETY AND HEALTH PROGRAM FOR THESE INSPECTIONS
These inspections will be conducted using the Predictive Solutions auditing software. Inspections are conducted using hand-held devices (iPad or iPhone) and are synced up to a data base, as well as shared with the distribution added online. All reports will be distributed via email within one hour of the inspection completing. Monthly reports shall be generated by the Consigli safety department and shared with all individuals on the distribution to encompass any leading indicator trends. The following recipients will receive these reports: Superintendent TIM BACKLIN, Brandon Oxner, James Flynn, Dean Archambault, Pfizer EH&S, Erick Lacy,
During the job site safety walks, Safety managers will note all observations during the walk. Any unsafe conditions or actions will be assigned a severity level. Inspection software tool, Predictive Solutions, will calculate a score based on the observations weighing the severity of any unsafe observations. Each unsafe observation will generate a corrective action, to be assigned a contractor responsible, severity, an antecedent, a party responsible for corrective action, an action taken, a completed time and date if completed, and location of observation with a detailed description.
The superintendent is responsible for conducting daily safety observations. These observations will be documented within the Daily Log on Procore. Observations made onsite will be discussed and reviewed at the daily stand-up meeting. Alexandra Puglielli and Keisy Marquez will be added to the distribution of all daily logs, allowing them access to safety observations as well.
The auditing of these observations are tracked in the “Monthly Management Audit” conducted on predictive solutions
Site Access / Parking: A detailed logistics plan has been created for the project that details delivery routes, employee access, and parking. Employee parking will not be impacted during this work. Worker access shall be from the loading dock located at the back driveway of the KSQ2 building. Restrooms will be designated in the working areas on the 4th and 5th floors per direction of CCC and Pfizer. Access for workers entering the project will be at the loading dock at which point, each worker will either present their badge to security or sign in with the attendant. Elevator 4 will be designated for worker access to the 4th and 5th floors, and will be used for all deliveries/ load out of trash and debris. Consigli will require all load out of trash and debris to be “live loaded”. No dumpster will be left on site for longer than it takes to load.
Public Safety: All workers will maintain 0 fraternization with any Pfizer employees while they are accessing occupied areas. Occasionally our work will require us to be in the common areas of the facility, and workers will need access to occupied locations for general access
Cafeteria, Loading dock, Elevators will require worker access It is to this end that workers need to be cognizant of their surroundings.
Tripping hazards are to be taken care of immediately and materials are not permitted to be stored in public ways.
The right-of-way will always be granted to the public.
Containment of our work areas is crucial to the protection of the public from flying objects, dust, debris, falling objects, etc. All work areas will be 100% contained with either a hard STARC barrier or poly barrier
Further logistics to be coordinated once Consigli mobilizes and throughout construction.

Pfizer Specific Requirements
(For more information please refer to Pfizer Contractor Safety Manual)
Handling asphyxiants: It is not anticipated that any handling of asphyxiant gasses will take place throughout the scope of this project. If this specific task does take place
Prequalification: The only subcontractors that will be awarded packages for work on the KSQ2 project will be ISNET approved contractors. All contractors approved to work on the KSQ2 project will required to maintain a grade from A-C. Any contractor with a grade form B-C will be required to adhere to additional safety requirements per Pfizer Requirements. All subcontractors will be responsible for maintaining their approved status throughout the duration of the project.
Safe Work Permit : All construction activities will be required to take place under a Safe Work Permit. Safe Work Permits will be completed on a weekly basis with each individual subcontractor designated as the “Permit Requestor”. A “Permit Issuer” (CCC Representative) will sign off on each individual permit only after it has been thoroughly reviewed; work will begin only after it has been determined that the work will move forward in a safe manner by CCC. All CCC representatives who are designated as a “Permit Issuer” will undergo the required training provided by Pfizer. If at any point an unforeseen condition shall arise, work must stop immediately until the permit can be adjusted for the new task being performed.
If applicable, additional Hazardous Work Permits may be required. The Safety Permit to Work Issuer will make that determination
Job Hazard Analysis JHA: All contractors are responsible for submitting JHAs prior to beginning any construction activity on site. Each subcontractor must include all tasks pertaining to their specific scope of work in the JHA, or submit multiple to contain the necessary amount of detail. JHAs must be submitted to Pfizer EHS FOURTEEN BUSINESS DAYS prior to mobilization. Work can commence on site only once Pfizer EHS has reviewed, the JHA. Please see below attachment:
Badging and Training: All construction workers who will work on site for greater than one week must undergo the proper screening procedure to be given a badge to enter the site. Workers who are not badged must be signed in and out each day at their assigned point of entry into the building. All badged workers shall undergo contractor safety training conducted Pfizer EHS. Consigli will maintain a strict 0 tolerance policy regarding security and badging requirements for all CCC and Subcontractor personnel.
Lock Out/ Tag Out-
THIS SECTION TO BE UPDATED ONCE ONBOARDING OF ALL RELEVEANT SUBCONTRACTORS IS COMPLETE
All lock out/ Tag out operations designed to control the flow of hazardous energies will be conducted in adherence with the Consigli Safety Program as well as all Pfizer EHS requirements. JLL will be responsible for managing and reviewing all LO/TO procedures. Adequate locks, and tags shall be maintained at all times by the competent person of the contractor who is conducting the work.
Tags will be required to contain the following information:
- Name of the person who applied the lock
- Date lock was applied
- Phone number of person who applied lock
- Reason for LO/TO
Any inadequate controls will result in a complete stoppage of work until the proper corrections have been made. A Facility Interruption Prevention Plan shall be implemented for each LO/TO operation to be conducted, and shall be submitted to JLL prior to mobilization of said task.
This will include, but may not be limited to:
- Existing, and temporary power systems
- Fire protection Systems
- Existing water valves/ plumbing
Ladders Last : Ladders shall not be used on site, unless all other elevated working platforms have been ruled out due to safety, or general feasibility. All work from ladders must be detailed in the subcontractors JHA, approved by Pfizer EHS, and be reviewed with the worker performing that task. All work from ladders will also be outlined in the subcontractor’s Safe Work Permit. Proof of training will be submitted to Pfizer EHS prior to any worker accessing a ladder. All work from ladders shall take place only after authorization of Consigli Construction has been attained. ALL WORKERS UTILIZING LADDERS MUST COMPLETE THE LADDER SAFETY TRAINING ATTACHED WITH THIS PROGRAM.
This “ladders last” approach will be clearly identified for all trades onsite during pre-construction and orientation. The use of mobile scaffolds and mobile work platforms are expected for this project.
If ladders/podium ladders are used for work at height, it will be done correctly per manufacturer’s recommendations and only after a pre-use inspection is completed. Any worker who is on a ladder/podium ladder and could be exposed to a fall greater than the height of their work on the podium will be required to tie off. Ladders will not be used as a form of access to a walking /working level. Only podium ladders with a rating Type 1A or 1AA will be allowed on Consigli projects. Wooden ladders are not to be permitted.
Consigli Safety Requirements
Pretask Plans: Pre-task Plans, Job Safety analysis or other similar type shall be conducted prior to all and any operation. JSA’s shall be conducted on a daily basis by all subcontractors on site, and be submitted to CCC once reviewed. Said plan is to be reviewed initially with all involved personnel performing that task, signed by all workers including their supervisor and filed on site.-
Please see appendix M of the Consigli Safety Program
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
All personal protective equipment shall meet all federal specifications and standards. All PPE will be provided new (hardhats, gloves, respirators, safety glasses) with emphasis on clean storage and maintenance stressed. Employee owned PPE is required to meet all applicable regulations and standards. Subcontractors shall supply their workers with all required PPE.
Project Superintendents shall be responsible for assuring that all Consigli employees and subcontractors comply with the Personal Protective Equipment Program. The Safety Department will periodically audit for field compliance. Requirements involve:
- Workers to be thoroughly indoctrinated and trained in the instinctive use of required protective equipment. Defective or unacceptable PPE will be removed immediately from service.
- This job shall be a Mandatory Hard Hat Job- Hard hats must show their company logo and must display the workers hard hat sticker from the Pfizer ksq2 project.
- This project requires 100% eye protection. ANSI Z87 Minimum Rating. The use of face shields for overhead work must be evaluated.
- All workers will be required to don ANSI cut resistant level 4 gloves-Minimum- at all times per Pfizer EHS
- Arm protection gauntlets (ANSI Cut Resistance Level 6) shall be worn when potential for arm lacerations exist.
- JSA’s need to document hand and finger hazards, and glove selection and use for protecting against said hazard.
- Employees shall be provided with face protection equipment when power tools, machines or operations present potential eye or face injury from physical, chemical, or radiation agents.
- Hearing protection against the effects of noise exposure shall be worn when sound levels exceed 82 dba- Per Pfizer on site. Hearing protection shall be available at all times in the Consigli project trailer/office upon employee request.
- Respirators/nuisance masks will not be allowed to be used on a voluntary basis in accordance with Pfizer requirements.
- Safety harnesses with lanyards, preventing a free drop of more than six feet, shall be worn by all workers on elevated locations not protected with railings. The same equipment shall also be worn on unprotected platforms. Safety lines shall be sufficiently anchored.
- Impermeable rubber or any impenetrable protection shall be worn to prevent skin contact with any acid, chemical, creosote, coal tar, fuel oil or concrete. This is especially true for Consigli masons utilizing acid washes.
- No machines, tools, etc. will be operated until all manufacturer required guards and auxiliary handles are in place, and the worker has been trained in the safe use of said tool.
- All PPE shall be inspected by the individual user prior to each use. Damaged/ inadequate PPE shall be taken out of service immediately and replaced by the employer.
- At no time shall any worker be allowed to work on site alone. Known as the “lone worker rule”, at least 2 workers must be on site at all times in order for one to be able to respond to an incident, accident, or emergency arising from the other’s task. The CCC superintendent will qualify as a second worker so long as he is in the working space.
Demolition: Selective demolition scope is anticipated. Removal of metal studs, duct work, and some Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing/ Fire Protection demolition will be required for the new layouts.
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 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/ labeled Red are not to be touched and need to be protected during all operations. Utilities spray painted/ labeled 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. All equipment labeled “OS”, as well as all lighting on the Cambridge campus is “backfed” from generators. Cat III voltage testers required for zero energy verification. The demo contractor will be responsible for completing CCC Demo Checklist- Appendix BBB of Consigli Corporate Safety and Health Program, prior to the start of any work in their target areas.
The following procedures are to be followed when performing demolition:
- Planning of the demolition activities taking place on site will begin at the safety preconstruction meeting held between the Consigli project team/ safety department and the demolition subcontractor.
- Prior to any demolition being performed, a hazardous materials survey must be
performed to include any building materials that may contain asbestos, lead,
PCBs, mercury, refrigerant, etc.
- If the demolition is to involve structural components of the building, then a plan
must be prepared by a competent person, then reviewed by a structural engineer.
An engineered stamp may be required.
- A survey must be completed of all utilities in the building in order to assess
whether or not these systems are live or have been disabled/made safe. Green
and red spray paint/ tape/ markings are to be used to identify which systems are live (red) and which are dead, and therefore safe to demo (green).
- All pertinent LO/TO procedures will be followed, and documentation of make safe will per required prior to demolition.
- A pre-demo checklist (APPENDIX BBB) must be completed before beginning
demolition in a new area.
- Debris from demolition must be removed throughout the work day, paying special
attention to combustible materials. Walking/working surfaces are to be kept free
and clear of debris at all times.
- Dust control must be maintained at all times through the use of air filtration,
misting with water, use of sweeping compound, etc.
- When cutting overhead or using a grinder, a face shield must be worn
Fall Protection: The existing space does not present significant fall protection risk (i.e. leading edge, roof work, floor/wall openings.) All work over 6 feet will require a Safe Permit-to-Work and some form of fall protection in accordance with Consigli fall protection policy. All PFAS anchor points shall be determined to be adequate by the competent person. The adequacy of each anchor will be determined by the task at hand, and will be updated in that crew’s JHA/ safe permit to work.
Anticipated work from heights may include, but are not limited to:
Ceiling Demolition/ construction
Mechanical, electrical, plumbing/ fire protection work,
Drywall and metal frame demolition/ construction
Holes greater than 2” will be covered and made fire safe with acceptable material will be secured and marked “HOLE” (cover must be able to withstand four times the intended load). Hole covers will stay in place until the hole/penetration has been filled. Core holes will have curbs built around them in order to prevent spills from migrating through the hole into the space below.
Scaffold and elevated work platforms: It is expected that small, mobile types of scaffold will be used throughout the project. These types of scaffolding will take favor over ladders in order to gain height. If ladders prove to be the only tool available to perform a specific task, then their use must be detailed in the subcontractor’s safe permit to work, and JHA. When used, scaffolds will be inspected daily before each shift by a competent person designated by each contractor using it. The inspections will be documented on the Consigli inspection checklist. After inspecting, scaffold “tags” located at the access point to each scaffold will be initialed by representative subcontractor competent person. A scaffold checklist will be provided by CCC to the subcontractors’ designated persons to aid them with their inspection. This checklist will be filled out prior to the beginning of each shift and filed in the construction office. Overhead protection will be provided for any access points into the building.
