Project Specific Loss Exposures and Controls I. Scope of Proposed Operations: This project is multi-phased and will take place on the the Newman Elementary School campus. Working hours for the project will be 7:00am until 3:30pm, Monday through Friday. This phase of the project will start on April 18th and conclude by August 26, 2011. Phase III will begin September 6, 2011 and will continue until June 21, 2012. The final phase will begin June 21, 2012 and be complete August 24, 2012. Listed below is a brief description of the work to be performed during Phase II, which will be followed by exposures and controls for each operation. Phase II April vacation week will be from April 19, 2011 to April 22, 2011. Work performed during this time will consist of the installation of the 8” water line that will service the modular units, installation of the temporary parking for the historical society and installing both the construction trailers. Also starting at this time will be the installation of temporary site fencing and erosion control to the largest extent possible. All these scopes of work are depicted in the site logistics plans in the attached. On or about May 16th, work will begin in the auditorium with work being performed on 2nd shift only. Temporary barriers will be erected in order to isolate the construction area from the rest of the school. The barriers will be rigid (drywall or similar material) and be acoustically caulked to lessen the impact of any noise to the school. This will also not allow dust to migrate outside of the construction space. Sticky mats will be placed at all exits of the work area to aid in this effort. If further measures are needed, CCC will wet down mats which workers will walk over when leaving the construction space. In addition to segregation of the work areas, negative air pressure will be achieved with the use of negative air machines. The negative air machines filter the air through HEPA filters and exhausts clean air. Their effectiveness will be monitored with an OMNI 4 pressure differential monitor. This will be reviewed at the beginning of the shift as well as throughout the work shift. Work will be halted in the event that negative air can’t be maintained for any reason. The protocols involving dust control are essentially identical to how CCC would set up to perform work in live hospitals. They have proven extremely effective in the past, and should again in this case. The work in the auditorium will start with the installation of a scaffold dance floor to be erected just above the height of the existing chairs. This dance floor is to be engineered so as to be able to support the weight of scissor lifts in addition to the weight of new building materials and personnel. The existing wood ceiling will be removed. New cat walks will then be installed followed by the installation of shoring. The ACT will then be removed. New roof reinforcing will be installed, and then the temporary shoring will be removed. MEPs will be roughed in. Finishes will then begin and are scheduled to be completed in mid-August in order to be open for the beginning of the school year. Work will begin in the kitchen on or about June 6, 2011 on the 2nd shift. Temporary barriers will be erected in order to isolate the construction area from the rest of the school. The barriers will be rigid (drywall or similar material) and be acoustically caulked to lessen the Consigli Site Specific Safety and Health Plan 2011 5 Newman Elementary School Phase II

Consigli Construction Company, Inc. impact of any noise to the school. This will also not allow dust to migrate outside of the construction space. Sticky mats will be placed at all exits of the work area to aid in this effort. If further measures are needed, CCC will wet down mats which workers will walk over when leaving the construction space. Make-safe of all existing MEPs will then take place once the work areas have been isolated as described above. Selective demolition will then begin in this area. Ceiling tiles and grid as well as the existing kitchen equipment will be removed to make way for the installation of new kitchen equipment along with all associated piping, flooring, and finishes. Work in the cafeteria is scheduled to begin on or around June 20th beginning with floor protection and MEP make-safe. This will be followed with the installation of temporary partitions as above. Once school has concluded for the year, selective demolition of the ACT and casework will begin next continuing into the installation of the fire protection system. Finishes will be restored in order to be open for the beginning of the school year. School will be concluded on or around June 17st, which will lead to the full turnover of the café, gym, science wing, and boiler room for construction. The classrooms will be accessible, but there will be no work in these areas until the school year begins and the students are housed in the modular classrooms, but for any work necessary to support the construction in the aforementioned areas. Prior to beginning work in the classrooms a full fire separation wall will be install for the duration of construction operations in the classroom areas. In addition to the work outlined above, also included in this phase is the disconnection and demolition of the existing electrical transformer, the installation of a temp generator, the removal of underground oil tanks, installation of a new transformer and associated duct banks, installation of a new generator, installation of a new entry drive and bus turnaround, installation of a new gas line, installation of a new parking lot, installation of new MEP systems and finishes in the gym, and new roofing on the cafeteria, auditorium, gym, and kitchen. Excavations: All required permitting will be obtained before any excavating is to begin 1. Dig Safe Notification. 2. Town of Needham permits requirements (DPW & Town Hall) if needed. 3. Jackie’s law. Mass General Laws at M.G.L.c. 82A § 1. Permit All excavations will adhere to OSHA sub part P Fall Protection: All work over 6 feet unless otherwise performed on a ladder or scaffold will require 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 10 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. 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 6

Consigli Site Specific Safety and Health Plan 2011 Newman Elementary School Phase II

Consigli Construction Company, Inc. 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 or 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. 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 will be required to tie off. Step ladders will not be used as a form of access to a walking /working level, also all straight ladders will be tied of when installed for use. Roof Work: There will be roofing work associated with this phase being installed over the cafeteria, auditorium, gym, and kitchen. Flagging will be installed at 6’ from the edge. Work inside of the flagging will not require fall protection. If work is to e completed outside of the flagging system, then fall protection will be required. An alternative to using conventional fall protection is to use a roof monitor system. Roofers may be outside of the flagging provided that there is a monitor whose sole duty if to warn workers if they are approaching the roof edge. The monitor is to have no other duties or perform any other tasks while monitoring workers. Scaffold and elevated work platforms: All scaffold 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 inspection tags located at the access point to each section. An inspection log book will be located in the job trailer and the designated person from each individual contractor must complete the scaffold checklist indicating each component that was inspected. The scaffold checklist will be provided to each designated persons by Consigli Construction to aid them with their inspection. All contractors who will be performing work from an aerial lift will show documented proof of training for all workers who will be using the lift. Overhead protection will be provided for all access points to any buildings located under any form of scaffolding. Aerial Lifts: Area and ground conditions in the intended work area will be inspected for overhead power lines sink holes, covers or any other unsafe condition which cause an unsafe incident. 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 Inspection tags or Log books for each individual scaffold/elevated platform. All contractors who will be performing work from an aerial lift will show documented proof of training for all workers who will be using the lift. 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: All Materials and chemicals used on-site will have an MSDS provided before being brought onsite. • MSDS sheets on file in Consigli Construction’s Site Safety Plan • All MSDS sheets shall be readily accessible. 7

Fire Protection: The hot work permit program will be implemented for all hot work to be conducted on the project. This will be coordinated through the Newman school as well as the Needham Fire Department (if needed). All hot work will stop a half hour before the regular end of the day work stoppage. Extinguishers of ABC rating will be positioned accordingly through the project. Flammables will not be stored inside the building or left overnight on the scaffold. All combustible or flammable materials will be stored in an appropriately rated lockable cabinet located no closer than 50 feet from the nearest structure. At no time are any flammables to be stored within 50’ of the two above ground tanks. Electrical: The electrician will be responsible for all temp power and any temp lighting that may be needed. They will coordinate all lock out tag out procedures with the school’s facilities department (if needed). There are no overhead power lines in any of the intended work areas. Crane: A crane will be used on site to install rooftop units. The roofers may also have a crane in order to stock the roof with new material to be installed or to offload debris. The electrician may have a crane in order to offload the new generator. 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. 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 marked before any excavation can begin as well as before any crane is set up. Environmental Issues:    Lead Paint: Lead based paint has been identified to exist on the window frame in the kitchen office and on the 18 purple columns located at the main entrance.  The paint may need to be disturbed 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 of 30 µg/m³ of air. Despite this, additional monitoring may be done. This does not mean that lead could not still be found in these 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.  Asbestos: Asbestos has been identified to exist in the gray floor tiles (9”x9”) and associated mastic, pipe fittings, stick pin adhesive, gray vent caulking, and black sink basin mastic. All asbestos containing materials will be fully removed by a licensed and regulated contractor under an asbestos removal plan which must be submitted and approved by the DEP. All disposals will be done in compliance with State and Federal Regulations. 8

Silica: Any activity which can produce silica dust will use engineering controls to keep dust to a minimum. There will be no dry cutting of any masonry material allowed; if water can not be used then a dustless vacuum system consisting of Ruwac WS Series 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 Ruwac system 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 masks such as an N95 if used may be on a voluntary basis. 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. See attached Mold policy. Noise: Noise exposure will also be a concern; noise levels will be monitored as needed during this phase. Consigli’s permissible noise policy and procedures will be followed if noise issues develop or are discovered during this phase. Air Quality: Indoor air quality will be tested at the outset of work in order to document levels of dust, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, and formaldehyde. Follow-up testing may be conducted at the discretion of CCC. In addition, where work has the potential to impact areas outside of the construction space, negative air pressure will be maintained through the use of negative air machines in addition to the segregation of construction areas as described earlier. Negative air pressure will be monitored via an OMNI 4 pressure differential monitor. It will be reviewed throughout the day and adjustments may be made based on the results of the monitoring.

Equipment issues: All operators will be required to have in their possession all appropriate licensing and training as required by OSHA and the State of Mass. All safety devices and warning alarms must be in good working order and all leaks are to be repaired immediately. All equipment will be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations for safe usage and have its operators manual with it at all times. IV. Exposure to the Visitors, Staff and Students: During some phases of construction, the elementary school will be open and occupied by staff, students, and owners. Any means of access leading to or from the building which finds itself under any type of scaffold will be provided with overhead protection. At no time is any worker allowed to enter any of the building unless previously authorized to do so. A 4 week look ahead which is updated weekly will be provided to Newman elementary school on a weekly basis. Non-fraternization with staff, visitors or students will be stressed with all subcontractor personnel during orientations. V: Adjacent Property:

Consigli Site Specific Safety and Health Plan 2011 Newman Elementary School Phase II

Consigli Construction Company, Inc. The site perimeter will be fenced off and all steps will be taken to limit the effects of the project on the surrounding community. Special attention will be paid to the each access point of each building so as not to impede access to it or its use. VI. Exposure to Street Traffic: All deliveries will be made at the designated gates unless otherwise directed by the CCC Superintendent. If there will be any exposure to live street traffic, then police details will be used as needed. All speed limits will be obeyed and deliveries will be made as to not coincide with Newman elementary schedules deliveries. All traffic control signage (if needed) will meet Newman’s requirements before being installed. Coordination with Newman Elementary school as well as Needham Police will be required when any equipment will be set up/used in the street. Fire dept access will be maintained and kept open for emergency responders. VII. Utility Exposures: There will not be exposure to overhead utilities. There is not a plan to work in any tanks/vaults and crawl spaces which will be designated permit confined spaces unless otherwise directed by a member of the CCC Safety Department. VIII. Additional Controls: Prior to start 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 at all times. 2. A Newman Elementary school / CORI identification badge must be obtained The MSDS 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.
