Safety and Health Policy
The safety and well being of all persons associated with Skanska projects are paramount. Skanska is committed to
implementing and fostering an Injury Free Environment (IFE) throughout our entire organization. IFE is a mindset
where no injury is acceptable and working safely is not optional. At Skanska, safety is personal to each of us and is a
way of life and we value and respect every worker. We maintain organizational structures, safety and health
management systems, procedures, and training plans that support an injury free environment and ensure
compliance with all relevant laws, regulations and standards.

All injuries are preventable when safety becomes an everyday personal value. Committing to an Injury Free
Environment is not just the right choice; its the only choice. We believe that with this approach we can positively
influence everyone associated with Skanska projects.

Skanska is committed to the following:

We will conduct all of our activities in a manner that accounts for the impact to the safety and health of our
workforce and communities

We are committed to the prevention of injuries and illnesses and to the continual improvement of our safety and
health management and performance

We will evaluate and comply will all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations as well as other
pertinent requirements at each location where we conduct business.

We will communicate this policy to all employees, make it available to the public and establish procedures to
receive and respond to inquiries from external interested parties.

We will alert potentially affected individuals and authorities of any safety and health incidents in a timely and
effective manner. Thorough investigations will be conducted and corrective and preventative actions shall be
implemented and monitored.

Senior Management shall maintain and periodically review the implementation of the safety and health policy.

Skanska believes that how we care for people today affects both current and future generations. We accept our
responsibility for maintaining awareness and minimizing adverse safety and health impacts from our operations.

Safety Health and Management Program
The purpose of Skanskas Safety and Health Management Program (SHMP) is to assist project management,
supervision, subcontractors and workers in understanding Skanskas Injury Free Environment philosophy and
the health and safety expectations and requirements for its projects.
The Skanska Project Team is responsible for the implementation and execution of this Safety and Health
Management Program.
Injury Free Environment
Skanska is committed to an Injury Free Environment. IFE is the shared corporate and individual belief that
safety is a value, not compromised by cost or schedule. Everyone has the right to go home safely at the end of
the day.
Injury Free Environment holds three basic premises:
All incidents and injuries are preventable; no level of incident or injury is acceptable or tolerated.
Injury Free operations are possible in construction; a prevailing mindset and conviction exists to do the
right thing and what is necessary to achieve that state.
Elevate safety awareness daily; a journey of continuous improvement to advance safety and achieve a
heightened state of awareness where workers choose to be responsible and accountable for their own
safety and the safety of their co-workers.
Responsibility and Accountability
Everyone associated with this project must understand their responsibilities with regards to health and safety on
this project. With the responsibilities defined, project management, supervision, subcontractors and workers will
be held accountable for their health and safety performance.
Project Management includes Project Executive, Project Director, Project Manager, Project Engineer,
and EHS Director. ** First-line Supervision includes General Superintendents, Superintendents, Field
Engineers, General Foremen and Foremen.

Project Safety Leadership Team
Skanska shall establish a Project Safety Leadership Team (PSLT) at the onset of each project.
The PSLT shall be made up of project management, field supervision, craft labor and safety representatives
from Skanska and all major subcontractors. The PSLT will meet regularly to discuss project safety concerns,
incident trends, compliance issues, and upcoming project work or activities that may require additional safety
planning and/or coordination. At a minimum, these meetings will be held monthly. Skanska project
management will prepare meeting minutes.
***PSLT/Contractor/Safety Meetings are held weekly, Foreman, Safety reps, Skanska USA Safety and Merck
Safety is involved.
Safety Regulations
Skanska and subcontractors shall comply with all applicable government regulations, specific client rules and
regulations, and this Safety and Health Management Program. If any of these standards, requirements, rules or
procedures conflict, the most stringent one will prevail.
Notification of Unsafe or Hazardous Conditions
Each worker on this project has the right and responsibility to notify project management or supervision of any
unsafe or hazardous condition that may be present without fear of retribution.
Project management or supervision will take immediate action to correct or remove any hazard brought to their
attention.
Skanska incorporates a Deviation Ticket System (Appendix Y), which institutes monetary penalties to
subcontractors for those at-risk behaviors that are deemed unsafe. The decision to impose a monetary penalty
fine rests solely on the Skanska person who believes that the particular at-risk behavior observed deserves a fine
attached to it. The amount of the deviation ticket depends on the severity or potential severity of the at-risk
behavior not only to the subcontractors own workers but to all individuals that may be put at risk by the at-risk
behavior due to the offending subcontractors non-compliance. All monetary deviations that are not
satisfactorily rectified as described in the remediation section of the deviation ticket will result in a back charge
to the offending subcontractor and will come out of their next months requisition.
Disciplinary Program
At-risk behavior on this project that could contribute to an incident or injury will not be tolerated. Each worker
has an individual responsibility to work safely, and each first-line supervisor is responsible to correct at-risk
behavior of workers under their direction.
At-risk behaviors considered Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health that may result in immediate termination
from the project, include, but are not limited to:
Failure to follow the Fall Protection Policy Failure to follow lockout/tagout procedures
Failure to follow the Substance Abuse Policy Fighting, horseplay, or practical joking
Possession of firearms, explosives or dangerous Entering or allowing to enter, a confined space
weapons without following procedures
Theft and other criminal activity Unsafe and/or reckless operation of motorized
Entering or allowing to enter an unprotected vehicles or equipment
trench or excavation
For those acts or practices not considered Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health the following may apply:
A Verbal, written warning, and/or re-training, suspension, or termination from the project.

8
Incident and Near Miss Reporting and Investigation
Every incident and near miss will be reported immediately to Skanska and Merck and documented using the
Incident Notification & Investigation Form (Appendix C). The Skanska Project Team will contact their EHS
representative immediately and use the online reporting system to initiate the formal notification process before
the end of the day. The Skanska Project Team will notify the Skanska Environmental Health and Safety
Department of any incident or near miss and will thoroughly investigate to determine the probable root cause(s).
Preventive action will be required to eliminate future occurrences.
An incident is defined as any unplanned or undesired event that results in or has the potential to result in a work-
related injury/illness, property damage, or disruption of business where the cause was from human errors of
omission or commission.
A near miss is any situation that has the potential to result in a work-related injury/illness, property damage,
serious environmental impact, or disruption of business under slightly different circumstances.
Skanska and/or subcontractor first-line supervision will be involved in the investigation of incidents and near
misses. The Incident Notification and Investigation form must be completed and submitted to the Skanska
Environmental Health and Safety Department and a full report must be submitted to Merck within 24 hours of
the occurrence. Injured workers shall be accompanied to the medical facility by a supervisor.
Post Incident Review Meeting
Upon completion of the incident investigation or observation of a major nonconformance Skanska may require a
post incident review meeting. At this meeting, the Skanska project team and Skanska senior project management,
supervision, and involved subcontractor(s) will discuss the nonconformance, root causes, and corrective action
plans.
Daily Work Site Safety Inspection
Skanska and subcontractors will perform daily work site safety inspections of their work and the work of
subcontractors under their direction. Inspections can be documented on the Work Site Safety Inspection Form
(Appendix M) or an acceptable equivalent.
Substance Abuse Policy
Skanska is committed to providing a safe, drug-free work place for all employees. This policy applies to all
Skanska, subcontractor at any tier, vendor and other third party employees, including management working on or
visiting this project.
Drug and alcohol abuse on and off the job can contribute both to incidents and to greater risk for all individuals
employed on this project, as well as the general public. All work tasks on Skanska projects will be considered
safety-sensitive.
The following are prohibited on Skanska projects:
Being under the influence of any amount of alcohol or illegal drugs
The use, sale, offer to sell, purchase, transfer, distribution or possession of illegal drugs, drug
paraphernalia or alcohol products
Each subcontractor will promote a Drug Free Workplace with their employees and will communicate what
constitutes prohibited activities during the safety orientation.

9
Any worker who suffers or contributes to a work-related injury or illness which requires treatment by a physician
or other medical facility or is involved in an incident where damage to property occurs will be tested for drugs
and alcohol within three (3) hours of the incident.
Subcontractors will ensure all workers involved in an incident have a post incident drug/alcohol test and will
report the results to Skanska. At a minimum, the drug test will follow current National Institute on Drug Abuse
(NIDA) five panel guidelines and the alcohol test will follow Department of Transportation (DOT) guidelines.
Workers that refuse to test, stall to be tested, are uncooperative with collectors, or attempt to alter a urine
specimen will be considered positive and immediately removed from the project.

Merck Program Requirements for Contractors Control of Drug & Alcohol Use for
Construction and Maintenance Projects
Contractor Drug & Alcohol Policy
April 10, 2008

POLICY OVERVIEW
Merck & Co., Inc. is committed to providing a safe, healthy, and productive workplace. Merck recognizes that
drug/alcohol use has an adverse effect upon the individual's ability to perform work and as a consequence, will
expose the individual, fellow workers, the public, and Merck to risk.
In order to eliminate this risk, Merck requires those Contractors with which it does business to adopt policies
and/or practices similar to the Sample Employee Drug & Alcohol Use Policy attached hereto or to adopt such
policies and/or practices that comply with and conform to the intent of Merck's own policies and practices on
alcohol and drug abuse.
Contractors must secure their subcontractors compliance with the provisions of said policies and practices.

DRUG & ALCOHOL USE POLICY RECOMMENDED TO CONTRACTORS

APPLICABILITY
This policy applies to all contracted construction and/or Maintenance Company performing work at any Merck
& Co., Inc. site. Such companies include, but are not limited to, engineering, construction management, general
and sub-contractor firms performing work for any Merck construction and maintenance project, as well as long
term suppliers performing operational and maintenance work in support of ongoing site activities.
Contractors shall have in place and enforce a policy that assures a drug and alcohol-free workforce while
performing work for Merck. This policy must either be identical to the Sample Policy attached hereto, or must
meet the minimum standards set forth in these Program Requirements. The Contractor will not assign to a
Merck project any individual who does have failed a drug/alcohol test. If an individual who has tested positive
for drugs/alcohol enters the site, Merck Site Management and the Merck Project Engineer reserve the right to
take whatever action they deem necessary, including without limitation requiring removal of the individual or
the Contractor (pursuant to which the individual entered the site) from the site. For repeat offenses, the
Construction Manager/General Contractor, Merck Procurement, Site Management and the Merck Project
Engineer reserve the right to determine the appropriate corrective action.

10
The phrase "performing work" shall include all times in which theContractor's Personnel (as hereinafter
defined) are employed on Merck projects.

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS OF THE DRUG/ALCOHOL USE POLICY FOR


CONTRACTORS
It is not Merck's intent to establish the drug & alcohol use policies for Contractors. Nonetheless, all Contractors
performing work on Merck projects shall include as part of their drug/alcohol use policy the following elements:
Contractors' employees, agents, and subcontractors (collectively, Personnel) shall not be allowed to
work on Merck projects while under the influence of alcohol or any controlled substance; and
Contractors' Personnel shall not be allowed to use, possess, distribute, or sell alcohol while at any Merck
site; and
Contractors' Personnel shall not be allowed to use, possess, distribute, or sell any controlled substance or
drug paraphernalia while at any Merck site; and
Contractors' Personnel shall not be allowed to misuse legitimate prescription or over-the-counter drugs on
or off any Merck site.
If, while on any Merck site, any of Contractor's Personnel is exhibiting abnormal behavior, or is suspected
of being under the influence, of, or of being in possession of, any controlled substance or alcohol, Merck
reserves the right temporarily to bar said Personnel from any Merck site and to require that the Contractor
conduct "for cause testing" of the subject Personnel. If Merck suspects that any of Contractor's Personnel
have sold or distributed a controlled substance while employed on a Merck project, Merck reserves the right
permanently to bar said Personnel from any Merck site.
Contractors policy shall comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations.
Contractors policy shall recognize that Merck Security has the right to conduct inspections of all personal
property of Contractor and Contractors Personnel brought onto any Merck site.

CONTRACTOR SUBSTANCE USE TESTING

The following substance & alcohol use testing requirements will apply:

PRE-EMPLOYMENT/PRE-ACCESS TESTING: Before any Personnel will be permitted to work on a


Merck project, the Contractor shall certify that such an employee has passed a pre-employment/pre-access
alcohol and drug test within the 14-month period immediately prior to commencing work on the subject
Merck project, and that each employee will be retested at least once every 10-14 months. Contractor shall
maintain test data on file with the Contractor's administrator. (see exceptions)
SUSPICION OF ALCOHOL OR DRUG USE/FOR CAUSE-TESTING: If Merck has required for
cause testing of any Personnel because such Personnel has exhibited abnormal behavior, or was suspected
of being under the influence of, or of being in possession of, any controlled substance or alcohol, the
Contractor must certify that the Personnel were tested immediately following removal from a Merck project.
Before said Personnel will be allowed to continue on the Merck project, the Contractor must certify that the
Personnel is in compliance with Contractors drug/alcohol-free policy, and be certified drug/alcohol free.
UNANNOUNCED TESTING: All Personnel are subject to unannounced drug and alcohol testing. All
Personnel subject to testing may be selected at random. Those Personnel who refuse to submit to the testing

11
shall be removed from Merck property and will be barred from any Merck site. Contractor shall protect,
defend, indemnify and save Merck, its Affiliates and their respective officers, directors, employees, and
agents, and their respective successors and permitted assigns harmless from any and all claims, actions,
causes of action, liabilities, losses, damages, costs or expenses, including reasonable attorney fees, which
directly or indirectly arising out of the screening of personnel and any matter related to such screening, the
results thereof, and actions taken or not taken in connection therewith.
CONFIRMED POSITIVE TEST RESULT: Merck reserves the right permanently to bar from any Merck
site those Contractor Personnel receiving a confirmed positive drug/alcohol test result without a legitimate
medical reason.

TEST ADMINISTRATION

Alcohol and drug testing shall be accomplished in accordance with applicable laws and shall be the sole
responsibility of the Contractor. Contractors' testing procedures shall, at a minimum, except for alcohol, meet
the United States Department of Health and Human Services regulations 49 CFR Part 40, for substances to be
tested, testing frequency and threshold levels. All Personnel shall be chemically screened via a 10- panel
certified analysis, as part of any drug/alcohol test in connection with a Merck project. The 10-panel analysis
shall comprise the 5-panel DOT SAMHSA mandated panel (amphetamines/meth, cocaine, marijuana (THC),
opiates (heroin, morphine, codeine), and PCP (phencyclidine)), and, as noted below, an additional 5 chemicals,
as well as alcohol. The additional 5 chemicals included in the 10-panel analysis are: barbiturates,
benzodiazepines, methadone, propoxyphene, oxycontin, and oxycodone; provided, however, that Merck
reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to revise the list of such additional 5 chemicals by notice thereof to
Contractor. Merck will not administer any drug or alcohol tests for Contractors Personnel. The Contractor will
be responsible to select a lab certified by the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the Department of Health and
Human Services.

AUDIT

Merck management, at its discretion, may require an unannounced audit of Contractors' and subcontractors'
drug and alcohol program to verify that: Tests are being conducted as required; and
The laboratory being used is certified by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and is
conducting tests using a scientifically sound method.

DISCLAIMER

Merck's requirement that Contractors institute drug and alcohol policies for their Personnel working on a Merck
project does not establish, nor is it intended to establish, any "joint employer" relationship between the
Contractor and Merck. This requirement does not establish, nor is it intended to establish, any direct or indirect
employer/employee relationship with Contractors' Personnel. Contractors shall implement and monitor their
own policies while they and their Personnel are performing work on a Merck project. Merck does not release,
waive, or give up any of its rights under its contract with any Contractor. Merck reserves all of its rights and
remedies against any Contractor in the event of a breach of the requirements hereof.

12
EXCEPTIONS

Contractors and Contractors' Personnel who are hired on short notice may, at the discretion of Merck's local
management, be permitted to begin work pending the required substance abuse testing certification.
In that event, such certification must be received by Merck within seven (7) consecutive work days from the
first date the Contractor and/or its Personnel commenced performing work for Merck. Contractors' clerical staff,
consultants, management and/or supervisory employees who attend meetings, conferences, or inspections in
connection with work in progress are not exempt from the testing provisions. Contractors and Contractors'
employees who perform work for Merck for less than a seven (7) consecutive work-day duration in any one
calendar year may be exempted from the pre-access/employment testing provision of these policies at the
discretion of Merck's local management. Exempt from the pre-access/pre-employment testing provisions of this
policy are intermittently used on-call services such as movers, or pickup or delivery services. Any exemption or
exception granted from this policy by Merck may be revoked at any time. All exemptions or exceptions must be
in writing.

Safety Planning
Skanska Project Execution Plan
The projects Account Manager, Project Manager, Superintendent and Area EHS Director shall meet following
project award to discuss the development of the Skanska Project Execution Plan (PEP) and shall ensure the
following is included:
1. IFE Plan (including IFE Orientation and Supervisors Skills training)
2. Development of Site Specific SHMP
3. Employee and Foreman EHS Orientation Plans
4. Safety Staffing
5. Administration of Safety Deviation Ticket program (Appendix Y)
6. Management of online man hour and incident reporting system
7. Environmental Management System (EMS) Aspect Identification
8. Identification and management of Hazardous Materials
9. Crisis Management (communication plan coordinated with client)
10. Emergency Action Plan (medical treatment provider, confined space rescue needs, etc)
11. EHS Training needs (OSHA 10/30, HAZWOPER, 1st Aid/CPR/AED, task specific or specialty training,
etc)
12. Recognition program
13. Security/site control
14. Sanitation provisions
15. Unique logistics that will impact safety
16. Subcontractor and tiered subcontractor prequalification
17. Employee screening drug and alcohol testing
18. OCIP/CCIP management and injury management
Subcontractor Project Specific Safety Plan
Prior to mobilization, each subcontractors project management and first-line supervision will develop and
submit a written detailed project specific safety plan that will describe how they and their sub-tier subcontractors
intend to implement and conform to the project SHMP. The safety plan will:
Identify each component of the work that the subcontractor is responsible for completing.
Identify hazards associated with the work and the proper equipment and tools to perform the work.
Plan adequate and sufficient controls to protect their work crews.
The Skanska project team will review the subcontractor project specific safety plans.
If the project specific safety plan needs revision due to scope of work changes, unanticipated or new hazards,
other condition changes, etc., then all work pertaining to that work component will stop until a new project
specific safety plan is completed.

14
Crew Daily Pre-Task Planning
A Daily Pre-Task Safety Plan will be completed daily by each crew performing work on this project. (Appendix F)
Each first-line supervisor will analyze task(s) to be performed by their crew and identify the work sequences,
hazards, training, controls and emergency action plans necessary to protect workers from the identified hazards.
The work will be broken down into individual steps (i.e. all the steps the work crew will have to take in
order to complete that task); the known hazards associated with the work; and the hazard controls (tools,
safety equipment, safety rules, safe work practices, etc.). This is a time for workers to provide input into
the pre-task plan.
First-line supervisors will review the plan with their respective work crew so that each worker is aware
of what work activities will occur during the shift, what hazards to be aware of and how to properly
control or eliminate those hazards. Each worker will sign the plan stating that they understand the work
activities, hazards and controls. This is also an acknowledgement that each worker agrees to work
according to the plan.
The completed pre-task plan shall be posted in a conspicuous location near the work activity.
Those tasks with similar work can use prior pre-task plans, but the plan must still be dated and reviewed with
crewmembers at the beginning of the shift. If the scope of work changes or a new hazard appears during the
work, the first-line supervisor will stop their crewmembers and revise the pre-task plan.
Orientation, Training and Meetings
To promote and ensure an Injury Free Environment, health and safety training is a requirement for all Skanska
and subcontractor workers assigned to this project.
Foreman Orientation
All foremen are recommended to mobilize to the site prior to their crew so they can receive specific training and
review the permits, forms, and procedures required by the SHMP as well as project specific information
necessary to adequately coordinate their work and prepare their crews.
Employee New Hire Orientation
Every worker shall attend an environmental, health, and safety orientation conducted by Skanska, which will
provide general health and safety information and project specific work rules and procedures.
Daily and Weekly Safety Meetings
All workers assigned to this project will participate in safety meetings conducted by Skanska or their employer.
Skanska reserves the right to remove subcontractor management/supervision personnel who do not regularly
attend and/or conduct weekly safety meetings on the project.
Safety meetings should communicate any incidents that occur on the project, safety concerns, new work
activities, and new and continuing potential hazards.
Health and Safety Training
In addition to the site specific health and safety orientation, OSHA requires that workers receive specific task
training. To help comply with OSHA minimum worker training requirements and assist in achieving an Injury
Free workplace, a training matrix has been included in this Safety & Health Management Program to assist in
the identification of applicable training requirements. This is for reference only and shall not be considered all
inclusive.

Project Specific Safety Work Requirements
The project specific safe work requirements are the minimum requirements for this project. The purpose of these
requirements is to ensure an Injury Free Environment and compliance with standards and regulations. Skanska
believes by concentrating on four main areaspersonal protective equipment, housekeeping, fall
prevention/protection and laddersincidents and near misses can be reduced.
Asbestos Containing Material (ACM)
Before beginning any renovation or demolition work, an asbestos survey must be completed for the work area.
The survey must be performed by an accredited building inspector and the report must be shared with all
personnel on site, including subcontractors. A copy of the report must remain on site for reference.
All asbestos must be identified prior to the disturbance of any materials. Materials not sampled shall be assumed
to be asbestos-containing until proven otherwise. If additional suspect materials are identified during the project,
all work must stop immediately and the materials must be sampled for asbestos.
Only a licensed contractor will remove, repair, or clean up asbestos-containing materials.
Precautions must be taken to avoid the disturbance of asbestos-containing materials. However, if known or
suspect ACM is disturbed during the performance of work, the following procedure will be followed:
Work in area shall immediately stop
Warn other workers nearby of the disturbed or damaged material
Contact your immediate supervisor
Barricade the immediate area around the disturbed or damaged material
Do not enter the barricaded area until proper bulk and/or air sampling has been completed and the area
is deemed safe by Skanska or subcontractor
Asbestos awareness training is required depending on the level of potential exposure.
Blasting
The transporting, handling, storing, and use of explosives, blasting agents and blasting equipment shall be
directed and supervised by a licensed contractor. The licensed contractor shall designate a person
knowledgeable and with proven experience and ability in blasting operations as their on-site blaster.
All personnel who participate in blasting operations shall receive initial training in basic explosives safety.
Individuals shall receive additional training in explosives safety commensurate with their assigned
responsibilities.
Prior to the use, storage or handling of explosives, a job-specific blasting plan shall be prepared by a
licensed contractor and submitted to Skanska for approval.
The job-specific Blasting Plan shall be site-specific and shall at minimum address the following:
Designation of a qualified individual as the Blaster who has authority over all actions and operations
related to blasting. List the names, qualifications, and detailed responsibilities for all personnel involved
with the blasting or who will otherwise be responsible for transporting, handling or storing the
explosives. List all incidental personnel and other personnel authorized to be within the danger zone
during blasting operations
Dates and location of blasting

18
Type and quantity of explosives and detonating or initiating devices to be used at the site An inventory
of explosives and blasting agents stored at the site shall be maintained
Means of transporting explosives and provisions for storing and securing explosives on site
Obtaining all applicable permits and licenses
Minimum acceptable weather and static conditions and considerations for stray radio frequency energy
and electrical currents where electrical initiation will be used
Standard procedures for handling, setting, wiring, and firing explosive charges
List of required PPE
Minimum standoff distances/means for clearing/controlling access to blast danger areas
Procedures for handling misfires and other unusual occurrences
Means of annunciation and timing for pre-blast notification and all clear after blast
In addition to the Blasting Plan, the licensed contractor will develop an Emergency Action Plan, which shall
include:
Phone numbers of local emergency response organizations (rescue, ambulance, fire department, police)
Location and phone number of nearest medical services facility
Actions to be taken when a person is injured
A copy of a material safety data sheet (MSDS) for each explosive or other hazardous material expected
to be used
Personnel not listed on the blasting plan shall not be allowed on site without approval of the blast officer. All
personnel shall receive a safety briefing prior to entering the blast area. A roster shall be maintained of all
personnel within the blast area
A copy of the blasting plan shall be maintained at the blasting site(s) and office locations
Caissons
When a worker(s) must enter a caisson, a qualified person will develop a detailed work plan. The plan will
include but not be limited to:
Type of shield to be used
Means of access for the worker(s)
Method of atmosphere monitoring to be used
Training to be provided to worker(s)
When workers are required to enter a caisson four (4) feet in depth or greater, the workspace will be considered
a permit-required confined space. All requirements of the confined space section of this SHMP and OSHA 29
CFR 1910.146 will be strictly followed.
All workers required to enter a caisson will receive confined space entry training and understand the contents of
the written work plan.
Guardrails must be erected around the caisson opening(s) when the sleeve does not extend 42-inches above
ground level.

19
Concrete Construction
All vertical and horizontal rebar, form stakes, metal and/or plastic conduit, and/or small pipe stub-ups will be
protected with approved caps or other industry accepted alternatives to protect against impalement and injury.
Workers that operate vibrators, pump nozzles and concrete buckets will wear appropriate eye and foot
protection. It is highly recommended that long sleeve shirts be worn to protect against exposure of concrete to
the bare skin and the possibility of concrete burn and contact dermatitis.
Workers engaged in vertical rebar assembly shall comply with the project six-foot fall protection rules.
Positioning devices alone are not approved fall protection but can be used in conjunction with personal fall
protection equipment.
Walkways along form walls will be constructed in accordance with OSHA scaffold and fall protection
standards.
Pre-fabricated forms and form making material will be stacked neatly at all times. When stripping concrete
forms, all material will be immediately removed and stacked in an orderly manner. Forming material or debris
will not block walkways and aisles. Subcontractor will remove rebar, tie-wire and other debris from the work
area daily.
No employee is permitted to ride a concrete bucket.
Ensure that reinforcing steel and forms for walls, piers, columns, stairs and similar vertical structures are
adequately supported to prevent overturning and collapse and are designed and installed under the supervision
of a qualified person.
Ensure that coiled wire mesh is adequately secured to prevent uncoiling.
Equip buckets with a discharge device that an employee can operate without being exposed to the load. Equip
buckets with safety devices to prevent premature or accidental dumping, and ensure that the release is self-
closing.
Follow safe rigging practices when handling concrete buckets.
When using bull floats, inspect the area to ensure there is no energized equipment or power lines nearby that the
handles could touch.
Concrete buggy handles must not extend beyond the wheels on either side of the buggy.
Rotating-type, powered concrete trowels shall be equipped with dead-man controls that automatically shut down
the equipment when the operator's hands are removed from the controls.
Finishers shall wear kneepads and impervious gloves when hand-finishing concrete.
Confined Spaces
Before any work can begin in a confined space a detailed Confined Space Entry Permit (Appendix I or
equivalent) and written entry plan must be prepared and submitted to Skanska. This process will help determine
whether the space is a Non Permit Required confined space or a Permit Required confined space. All
confined spaces shall be considered Permit Required unless the contractor can prove otherwise. Refer to
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.146 for further direction.
A confined space is any space large enough and so configured that a person can bodily enter and perform work;
has limited openings for entry and exit; and was not designed for continuous human occupancy. This may also
be referred to as a Non Permit Required Confined Space.

20
A Permit Required space meets the above criteria and has a potentially uncontrollable hazard.
Permit Required confined spaces may include, but are not limited to:
Storage tanks Underground vaults and utility tunnels
Excavations and trenches Pipelines
Ventilation and exhaust ducts Pits and tubs
Sewers Open top spaces more than four feet in
Manholes depth

If possible, all confined spaces should be identified and evaluated at the beginning of the project.
Before working in any confined space, a competent person will determine what hazards exist. Any operating
system or equipment will be locked out and tagged to prevent accidental operation. Contact the operating
facility representative prior to any confined space entry work.
Prior to workers entering a Permit Required confined space, the atmosphere must be tested and a permit
completed and authorized. The atmosphere will be tested for oxygen deficiency, toxic gases or vapors, and
combustible or flammable gases or vapors according to the hazard analysis and/or information provided by the
client.
Prior to any worker entering a confined space, he/she will be trained in the following and records submitted to
Skanska prior to commencement of the work:
Contents of the Confined Space Entry Plan Hot Work Permit, if required
Known hazards in the confined space Atmosphere testing requirements
Emergency procedures in case of an Lockout/ Tagout procedures
emergency Fall protection if required
Correct use of personal protective
equipment when required

Section 100 Scope of Applicable Equipment
This standard applies to power-operated equipment used on Skanska USA projects that can hoist, lower, and
horizontally move a suspended load. The list below is intended to offer a framework of the variety of cranes
seen on projects across the United States and to provide guidance of the applied scope of this standard.
Telescopic Crane This crane has a boom that consists of number of different fitted tubes that reside inside
each other. A hydraulic mechanism is what extends or retracts the tubes to increase or decrease the length of the
main boom.
Tower Crane This crane is fixed to the ground and gives a great combination of height and lifting capacity.
Its commonly used in construction to build sky scrapers and other tall buildings. To save space and to provide
stability the vertical part of the crane is typically braced directly onto the completed building which is normally
the concrete lift shaft located in the center.
Truck Mounted Crane A crane that is mounted on a rubber tire truck that drives around for maximum
portability. When in operation Outriggers extend horizontally then vertically to both level and stabilize the crane
for hoisting operations.
Rough Terrain Crane A crane that is mounted on an undercarriage contains four rubber tires and is designed
for pick-up and carry operations. Outriggers extend first horizontally and then vertically to both level and
stabilize the crane for hoisting operations.
Lattice Boom Crane A crane that can be mounted on an undercarriage with tires or tracks. The lattice boom
section consists of the boom butt and boom tip. The length of which is increased by adding boom extensions.
Boom sections are made of lightweight, thin wall, high strength alloy tubular or angle steel and are designed to
take compression loads. Lattice boom manufacturers have set a zero tolerance on rust, bent lacing or cords,
cracked welds, and other problems.
Pile Driver Crane A crane used in combination with a machine for delivering repeated blows to the top of a
pile for driving it into the ground; consists of a frame called leads, which supports and guides a hammer
weight, together with a mechanism for raising and dropping the hammer or for driving the hammer by air for
steam.
Barge Crane/ Floating Crane A specialized crane which can be permanently attached to a ship, or driven up
and secured on a floating barge. Its used to lift heavy loads in marine type environments.
Crawler Crane An undercarriage mounted crane that also has a set of tracks that provide extra stability and
mobility.
Aerial Crane A specially designed and fitted lifting helicopter which can lift large loads.
Loader Crane A loader crane is fitted to a trailer or flat body truck chassis and used to unload/load goods
onto the trailer/truck or onto a jobsite. It contains many different jointed sections that can be folded into a
smaller space when the crane is not being used.

24
Section 300 Pre Erection Requirements
1. Geotechnical Requirements
Soil conditions must be fully assessed prior to any crane arriving at the site. Items to consider include
travel, slope, and soil loading ability. Prior to the erection of any tower crane a geo-technical evaluation
shall be accomplished and incorporated into the foundation design of the engineered system.
2. Foundation Considerations
For mobile cranes, outrigger size and location and soil condition must be considered when planning. Soil
bearing capacity is to be determined by a professional engineer and outrigger sizing established prior to
the crane arriving on site. Refer to Appendix H for guidelines in determining outrigger configuration.
Tower crane foundations must be a designed system, certified by a professional engineer, taking all
loads and soil conditions into consideration.
3. FAA and Other Agency Notifications
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires a permit on construction cranes any time they will
exceed 200 feet in height, OR when they are placed within 20,000 feet (3.79 miles) of an airport
regardless of height. The FAA requires FAA Form 7460-1 to be submitted at least 30 days before the
following:
The date the proposed construction is proposed to begin
The date the application for a construction permit is to be filed
The FAA requires that 4 copies of the FAA Form 7460-1 be sent to the local/regional FAA Director. In
addition to the FAA, other local statutes may require additional notification.
***Merck Crane requirements: As per Merck Procedure No. 61, any crane boom that will operate at a
vertical height to ground greater than 150 requires compliance with FAA Advisory Circular AC/7460-
1K.
4. Overhead and Underground Utility Considerations
Prior to the assembly/erection of any crane it must be determined if any part of the crane, load line, or
load (including rigging and lifting accessories) could get in the direction or area of assembly within
proximity of a power line. Minimum clearance distances are on the table on the next page. In the event
this clearance must be encroached the line will be de-energized prior to the planned encroachment.
Minimum Clearance Distances
Voltage (nominal kV, alternating current) Minimum clearance distance (feet)
Up to 50 10
Over 50 to 200 15
Over 200 to 350 20
Over 350 to 500 25
Over 500 to 750 35
Over 750 to 1000 45
Over 1000 (as established by the power line owner/operator or registered
professional engineer who is a qualified person with respect to
electrical power transmission and distribution)

25
5. Inspection and Oversight Requirements
Prior to any crane arriving on a Skanska project the previous monthly and annual inspection shall be reviewed
by Skanska site management. Verification that all noted defects have been corrected shall be included with the
inspection form if applicable. Inspection forms must be compatible with the applicable forms in Appendices P,
Q, and R of this standard.
In addition, erection of tower cranes shall be directed by a third party inspector. Upon completion of erection a
new annual inspection shall be accomplished by the third party inspector and all defects corrected and
documented prior to any lift. The Tower Crane Protocol Checklist is included in Appendix U of this standard to
serve as a guidance checklist.
6. Required Checklists
Since inspection checklists vary it is required that monthly and annual inspections utilize the forms referenced as
such in Appendices P and Q of this document. It is highly recommended that the daily inspection checklist be
utilized as well; however this can very by region. At a minimum a daily inspection will be accomplished and a
list of defects documented in Appendix R (exception list).

26
Section 400 Post Erection Procedures and Requirements
1. Inspection Requirements (annual, monthly, daily)
On-going comprehensive inspections are a critical component that ensures the on-going safe operation of all
cranes.
Daily Inspections will be accomplished for all cranes on Skanska projects. It is highly recommended
that the checklists in Appendix R of this standard are used to document that this requirement has been
met. However, the only documentation required by this standard are any deficiencies identified during
the daily inspection. Daily inspections may be accomplished by a Qualified Operator as defied in
Section 200 of this standard.
Monthly Inspections will be accomplished for all cranes on Skanska projects that reside on the project
for greater than 30 calendar days, regardless of operating days during that period. The monthly
inspection forms in Appendix Q of this standard are required to be completed and maintained in the cab
of the equipment. Monthly forms will be retained for a minimum of 3 months, as some local agencies
may require them to be retained longer. Monthly inspections may be accomplished by a 1) Qualified
Operator, 2) Skanska Crane Inspector, or 3) Third Party Inspector as defined in Section 200 of this
standard.
Annual Inspections will be accomplished for all cranes on Skanska projects that reside on that project
for greater than 365 calendar days, regardless of operating days during that period. The annual
inspection forms in Appendix P of this standard are required to be completed and maintained in the cab
of the equipment. Annual inspections must be accomplished by either a Skanska Crane Inspector or a
Third Party Inspector as defined in Section 200 or this standard.
2. Operator, Rigger, and Signalman Qualifications
The intent of this standard is to require all crane operators on Skanska projects to be a certified crane operator
(CCO), and posses all of the requisite skills to safely operate the applicable equipment. However, until CCOs
are available at all US locations Skanska will make every effort to use operators who are certified by the
National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) for the cranes they are operating. Prior
to any lifts the operators competency shall be verified by Skanska site management.
This certification however does not ensure that an operator is capable of safely operating a particular piece of
equipment. The following guidelines will be followed to ensure operators are fully qualified to safely operate
the applicable equipment for the project:
NCCCO Certified
1. Review and inspect NCCCO Certification Card for types of cranes the operator is certified to operate.
2. Verify on the Application for Employment or by sub-contractor certification that the applicant has
operated cranes in the classification for which they are being hired.
3. Skanska site staff will verify that the operator is competent to operate the applicable crane.
4. Upon determining that the potential operator is qualified, personal training will be given to the operator
that may include the following:
a. Site specific requirements
b. Review of specific sections of the Company Safety Manual such as safe material handling
practices
c. Equipment maintenance and periodic equipment check requirements

27
Non NCCCO Certified (Items 2 4 above will apply)
Every effort will be made to afford non NCCCO certified operators this training. Skanska will offer periodic
NCCCO training opportunities and arrangements will be coordinated by Operating Unit.
Riggers and signalman shall be certified and/or qualified as outlined in Section 200 of this standard.
These guidelines do not overrule any local, state or federal requirements. In the event of conflict the more
stringent standard shall prevail.
3. Critical and Major Lift Planning
Critical Lift Determination
The decision to designate a lift as a critical lift is a management decision, incorporating both critical and major
lifts (see definition of critical and major lifts in Section 200). Guidelines provided here are intended to aid in
making that decision. The manager who has the responsibility for the item being lifted has the authority to
require that it be handled as a critical lift. In addition, the manager at the facility where the lift will be performed
also has the authority to require that it be handled as a critical lift. The manager who designated the lift as a
critical lift shall ensure that a person-in-charge (PIC) is assigned. (The PIC need not be in the Skanska
organization).
***Merck Critical Lift Criteria:
Lifts at or greater than 75% of the cranes rated capacity
Crane boom exceeds 150 in height
Lifts over an occupied building
Lifts over major utility or chemical lines
Lifts over tank farms or chemical storage areas
Lifts involving more than one crane
Lifts involving non-routine or difficult rigging
Critical Lift Procedures
The PIC shall ensure that a step-by-step procedure is prepared for critical lifts. Although individual procedures
are prepared for the one-time critical lifts, general procedures may be employed to accomplish routine recurrent
crucial lifts. For example, a general procedure may be used to lift an item or series of similar items that are
frequently lifted or repeatedly handled in the same manner.
Any non-routine or critical equipment lift (as determined by the Project Manager, Superintendent or
Safety Supervisor). Critical equipment may include equipment that meets one of the following criteria:
o The load item, if damaged or upset, would result in a release into the environment of radioactive
or hazardous material exceeding the established permissible environmental limits.
o The load item is unique and, if damaged, would be irreplaceable or not repairable and is vital to
a system, facility or project operation.
o The cost to replace or repair the load item, or the delay in operations of having the load
damaged, would have a negative impact on the facility, organization, or budget to the extent that
it would affect program commitments.

28
o A lift not meeting the above criteria shall also be designated critical if mishandling or dropping
of the load would cause any of the above noted consequences to nearby installations or
facilities.
o Further site-specific criteria may be developed to supplement those cited above and may include
loads which require exceptional care in handling because of size, weight, close-tolerance
installation or high susceptibility to damage as well as lifts using multiple pieces of lifting
equipment.
An example of a critical lift procedure and checklist is included in Appendix T of this standard.

29
Approval of Critical Lifts
The critical lift procedures should be reviewed at a pre-lift meeting by the responsible contractor, the crane
operator(s), the PIC, Skanska Site Management, author of the Lift Plan, Manager of the lift operation, and
Skanska EH&S Department.
Revisions of Critical Lift Procedures
Any revisions to the procedure shall be reviewed and approved though the same cycle as the original procedure.
Pre-Lift Meeting
Before the critical lift is performed, a pre-lift meeting with all participating personnel shall be held. During the
meeting, the critical lift procedures shall be reviewed and questions shall be resolved. The pre-lift meeting shall
be documented.
Note: Practice lifts are recommended. (If used, requirements for the practice lift should be documented in the
procedure.)
4. Jumping Cranes
Jumping of cranes must follow similar protocols as a critical or a major lift and requires a comprehensive
written plan to address the following:
1. Number of sections to be added/removed
2. Work sequence
3. Rigging to be used
4. Inspection of all rigging equipment including shackles, hooks, etc.
5. Review of all equipment such as collars, ties, and bolts, including capacities and a record of visual
inspection by a competent person.
6. Relevant weather warnings and emergency procedures
7. Full compliance with manufacturers recommendations
5. Lift and Pre-Task Planning
Prior to any lifts a lift plan (see Definitions Section 200) should be in place. The final lift plan should fully
incorporate the current site conditions, including utility locations and any possible intersections with public
access areas.
A daily pre-task plan must be accomplished prior to any lift for that particular day to ensure that no deviations
from the lift plan exist.
An example of a lift plan is included in Appendix V for reference.
6. Safety Plan and Job Hazard Analysis
All incidents involving crane operations (i.e., unsafe observation, near miss, etc.) must be reported immediately
to Skanska site staff, including the site health and safety manager. Skanska will collaborate with other
contractors if appropriate and develop a corrective action in response to the cause of the incident prior to
resuming crane operations.
Accessible areas within the swing radius or the rotating superstructure must be barricaded to prevent serious
injury or death to workers. Crane baskets are not permitted without the prior approval of site management and
Skanska EHS personnel.

30
In addition, the following guidelines for mobile cranes should be adhered to:
1. Ensure the crane is level 360o and maintained during operation.
2. Extend outriggers fully or set per the manufacturers recommendation for a particular lift configuration.
Weight must be off the tires.
3. Cribbing or mats under outrigger pads should be of sufficient size and properly placed to ensure
adequate soil bearing as required by the manufacturer.
4. Before a lift, determine the load weight, radius, and load capacity. Crane capacity charts are the ideal
gross capacity of the crane at certain boom lengths, boom angles, and load radius from the crane center
pin.
a. Deductions to the net capacity should be made per manufacturers load chart or operating
manual for attachments such as jibs (stowed or attached), headache balls, wind, less than ideal
setups, etc. to determine the load that can be safely lifted.
b. Additional deductions to the net capacity are the weight of the cranes load block, rigging and
amount of load line required to make the lift. Some manufacturers include the load line in their
load charts but others, like Manitowoc, do not.
5. A designated, qualified person will determine the load weight. Note: OEM drawings listing the
equipment or machinery assemblies are not always accurate. Refer to the shipping weight or have the
equipment or machinery assembly weighed. Calculate all structural loads and determine the center of
gravity.
6. Determine the radius from the center pin of the crane to the load using a steel ruler.
7. Determine the boom length, counterweight, and crane configuration to determine the correct load chart
required.
8. Position the hook over the Center of Gravity of the load before starting the lift.
The following guidelines for tower cranes should be adhered to:
1. No employee will work or travel on any part of the crane boom without proper fall arrest equipment. No
worker will be allowed to climb the tower or get on the boom when the crane is in operation
2. Hoisting ropes must be shortened by the removal of ten feet at the dead end after every three months of
use unless otherwise specified by the manufacturer.
3. No load will be swung over any public street that is occupied by the general public unless authorized by
local authorities.
4. Prior to a load being swung over other workers, the first-line supervisor using the crane will provide a
lookout that shall sound an alarm as the load is moved across the work area. The lookout shall wear a
fluorescent orange vest or other similar high-visibility garment.
5. A written crane dismantling plan is required for dismantling of any crane.
In addition to the above safety requirements, the requirements of OSHA standards 29 CFR 1926.550 shall be
complied with too.

31
7. Barge Mounted Cranes
When a mobile crane is to be placed on a barge to work, a Crane on Barge Stability Chart must be prepared
which will:
1. Require a survey of the barge for structural capacity for the operating crane.
2. Determine the stability parameters of the particular barge and crane combination.
3. Specify the manufacturers machine list chart to be placed on the crane and used in operation.
4. Specify the location of the crane on the barge and the initial conditions of the list and trim.

Excavations and trenches four feet or greater in depth will be evaluated for atmospheric hazards to
determine whether permit required confined space requirements apply.
A registered professional engineer must design all excavation over 20-feet in depth.

Fall Prevention/Protection
This project is committed to the philosophy of 100% continuous fall protection whenever workers are
exposed to fall hazards of six feet (6') or greater. A monitor system is not an acceptable form of fall
protection on any Skanska project. In the event any deviation from this fall protection procedure is
required, the activity must be approved by the Environmental, Health and Safety Director and Account
Executive.
Skanska, subcontractors, vendors, or other third party individuals will take all practical measures to eliminate,
prevent, and control fall hazards. All work will be planned with the intent to eliminate identified fall hazards.
When a fall hazard has been identified and cannot be eliminated, then effective means of fall protection will be
implemented.
Acceptable fall protection systems include the following:
Guardrail systems Positioning device systems
Safety netting Protection from falling objects
Covers for floor, roof and wall openings Personal fall arrest systems
Workers exposed to fall hazards that cannot be eliminated will be equipped, trained and given periodic refresher
training in fall protection to minimize the adverse effects of accidental falls. Fall protection training records
shall be maintained on the project and available for review by Skanska.
On this project, 100% Fall Protection means Protected from falls at all times when working at or above
six feet. This is mandatory for all trades.
Workers may work from ladders without personal fall protection when the following criteria are met with no
exception:
Working height does not exceed 12 feet
Work can be performed without reaching (worker remains inside the area between the vertical side rails)

36
Work does not involve working within 15 feet or above an open side, leading edge, or shaft, even if the
edge has a proper guardrail.
Personal Fall Arrest Systems will consist of a full-body harness, double lanyard with shock absorbing device or
retractable lifeline, locking snap hook and anchorage points meeting OSHA regulations and ANSI requirements.
Workers will not tie off to a perimeter cable or wire rope handrail unless engineered for such use.
When wire rope is used to construct guardrail systems, at least 1/4 diameter cable shall be used with cable
clamps as required by wire rope manufacturers.
Subcontractors will submit all engineered documentation on horizontal lifelines to Skanska for review and
approval. All horizontal lifelines will be installed under the direct supervision of a qualified person.
The use of personal fall arrest systems requires the submission of a Rescue Plan for each condition.
Lanyards will not be tied back to themselves unless the lanyard is specifically manufactured to tie back to itself.
If any component of a guardrail system must be removed, a Skanska Guardrail Removal Permit must be issued
(Appendix E). Any contractor that must remove a fall protection system in the course of their work will be
responsible for immediately replacing and restoring the protective system.
Floor openings two inches or greater in the least dimension and all wall openings will be guarded or covered
with an appropriate cover or guardrail. Floor covers will be secured to the floor to prevent easy removal. The
floor or wall cover will be properly marked with a Danger sign stating, Cover-Do Not Remove. Elevated
work must have protection from falling objects if work is permitted below.
Fire Protection/Prevention

Lead
When welding, cutting, burning, grinding, chipping, abrasive blasting, rivet busting, or otherwise disturbing
painted or coated surfaces, a pre-assessment will be required to determine if the surfaces contain lead-based
paint. If bulk sampling results for paint are positive for lead, OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1926.62 will be followed.
An initial hazard assessment is required and will be performed to determine worker exposure levels. The
assessment will involve personal air sampling of a representative group of workers performing different tasks
unless historical data is available. During the initial exposure assessment, workers will wear protective clothing
and the proper respiratory protection until the results of the assessment are known.
Copies of sampling results will be made available to Skanska and all affected employees. Each worker is to be
notified in writing of their blood and/or personal monitoring results within five working days after the results are
known.
Area sampling results from a work area will not be used for determining worker exposure levels.
If sampling results indicate the exposure limits are above 30 g/m3 but below 50 g/m3, the following are

Protective clothing Training
Medical surveillance
Barricades, enclosures, wet methods, HEPA vacuums, track mats, ventilation, and good housekeeping protocols
shall be provided to ensure the protection of all workers, members of the public, and building occupants,
regardless of lead levels.

44
Lockout/Tagout
The Project Team will establish a lockout/tagout procedure to ensure that workers are not exposed to the hazards
from moving machinery or equipment and those hazards posed by an energized source (pneumatic, steam,
hydraulic, electrical, chemical, etc.).
Safety locks and tags will be applied to all circuits, switches, valves, isolating devices, and any other energy
sources to ensure equipment, machinery, or processes that have been considered functioning, charged, or could
otherwise be operable have been rendered non-operational or de-energized.
No person will remove another workers safety lock or attempt to energize any piece of equipment, machinery
or process that has been locked out and tagged.
Appendix O or its equivalent shall be completed prior to beginning any work activity involving lockout/tagout
procedures.
De-Energizing Equipment and Processes
A Skanska representative will coordinate with the operating facility representative and/or construction start-up
group when any energized equipment or process must be de-energized.
The Skanska representative and operating facility representative and/or construction start-up group will identify
all circuits and sources of energy that require locking and tagging to make the equipment or process inoperable.
The operating facility representative/construction start-up group will notify their personnel that may be affected
by the de-energizing. The first-line supervisor overseeing the work will sign out sufficient safety locks to
lockout the piece of equipment or process.
The following procedures shall be followed:
1. The operating facility representative and/or construction start-up group and first-line supervisor(s) will
make certain the operating controls to the equipment, machinery or process are in the off or neutral
position.
2. Once the operating controls are in the "off" or "neutral" position, the operating facility representative
will place a safety lock and tag on the energy isolating device(s) first.
3. The first-line supervisor(s) will apply their safety lock to each of the isolating devices that provides
power or other energy to the machinery, equipment or process. The first-line supervisor(s) will also
apply a visible warning tag, which will contain the name of the first-line supervisor(s), company, date
and phone number.
4. Once the first-line supervisor(s) have placed their safety lock(s) and tag(s) on the energy-isolating
device, all affected workers will then apply a safety lock and tag to the energy-isolating device.
Alternatively, the first-line supervisor may place the key(s) to their equipment safety lock(s) in a safety
lock box, place their individual safety lock and tag on the safety lock box, and then have each affected
worker place their safety lock and tag on the lock box.
5. Prior to any work being performed on the piece of equipment, machinery, or process, the operating
facility representative/construction start-up group and first-line supervisor will verify that it is
inoperable. The operating facility representative/construction start-up group will attempt to operate the
piece of equipment machinery, or process. After verifying it is inoperable, the switch will be returned to
the off or neutral position.
Stored or residual energy will be dissipated by whatever means are necessary. Capacitors will be discharged and
high capacitance elements short-circuited and grounded by a qualified electrician.

45
Re-Energizing Equipment and Processes
When the required work is completed and the machinery, equipment or process can be returned to service, the
first-line supervisor will contact the operating facility representative/construction start-up group to notify of
completed work operations.
The first-line supervisor will make a visual inspection of the equipment, machinery, or process to insure all
workers have completed their work and equipment, tools and other material is removed from the area.
After confirming all workers, materials, tools and other equipment are out of the area, the operating controls are
still in the off or neutral position, and each worker has removed their safety lock and tag, the first-line
supervisor will remove their safety lock and tag from each of the isolating devices.
If a worker fails to remove his or her safety lock at the completion of the job or assigned duties, their immediate
supervisor will immediately notify management and the Skanska Environmental Health and Safety Department.
Every attempt should be made to contact the worker and require them to return to the project to remove
their lock. If the worker is unwilling or cannot return to the project, it must be verified that he/she is not
physically at the project site before the safety lock can be removed. All safety lock removal incidents will be
investigated following the incident investigation process and disciplinary action will occur.
The management representative will notify the operating facility representative/construction start-up group that
the equipment, machinery or process is clear to be energized.
De-Energizing Fluid Processes
Any vessel, pipe, hose or process that contains a hazardous liquid or gas will be purged with nitrogen or flushed
before work begins as described in the pre-task plan for the activity.
A management representative will coordinate with operating facility representative/construction start-up group
when any fluid process requires de-energizing.
The management representative and operating facility representative/construction start-up group will identify all
valves or gates and where blanks are required to be installed to isolate the work area. The operating facility
representative/construction start-up group will notify their personnel that may be affected by the de-energizing.
The first-line supervisor overseeing the work will sign out sufficient safety locks and tags to completely isolate
the system.
The operating facility representative/construction start-up group and first-line supervisor will verify that each
valve or gate is in the off, neutral, or closed position.
Once the valve or gate is in the off, neutral, or closed position, the operating facility representative will
place a safety lock on the valve or gate first. Then the first-line supervisor will apply a safety lock to each valve
or gate. The first-line supervisor will also apply a visible warning tag with the name of the first-line supervisor,
company, date and phone number.
Once the first-line supervisor has placed their safety lock(s) and tag(s) on the energy-isolating device, all
affected workers will then apply a safety lock and tag to the energy-isolating device. Alternatively, the first-line
supervisor may place the key(s) to their equipment safety lock(s) in a safety lock box, place their individual
safety lock and tag on the safety lock box and then have each affected worker place their safety lock and tag on
the lock box. The required blanks will be placed at this time.
Prior to commencing work, the operating facility representative and first-line supervisor will verify the system
and all piping, hoses, valves and processes are de-energized and that any stored energy is dissipated or
restrained.

46
Welded valve connections should have the valve handles removed and the stem tagged Do Not Operate. All
other valves and isolating devices must be physically prohibited from being operated.
Hydraulic and pneumatic equipment or machinery will be blocked to prevent movement.
Re-Energizing Fluid Processes
When the required work is completed and the system can be returned to service, the first-line supervisor will
contact the operating facility representative/construction start-up group to notify them of completed work
operations.
The first-line supervisor will make a visual inspection of the area to ensure all workers; equipment, tools, and
materials are removed from the area.
After confirming all workers, equipment, tools and materials are removed from the area, the valves and gates are
in the off, neutral, or closed position, and each worker has removed their safety lock and tag, the first-line
supervisor will remove their safety lock and tag from each of the isolating devices.
The management representative will notify the operating facility representative/construction start-up group that
the system is ready to be energized.

Project Hazard Communication Program
All workers on this project are entitled to know the properties and potential safety and health hazards of
chemicals or substances that they may come in contact with on this project.
Each project will develop a written project specific Hazard Communication Plan. This plan will be posted in a
location where workers can easily access and review the plan.
Each subcontractor will submit to Skanska a Master Chemical and Substance Inventory List and a copy of the
Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) of all known hazardous chemicals that are in their work area. Prime
subcontractors will be responsible for obtaining all sub-tier subcontractors Master Chemical and Substance
Inventory Lists/MSDS and forwarding to Skanska.
The Master Chemical and Substance Inventory List (Appendix G) or equal will be maintained, even if they do
not have or will not use any hazardous chemicals or substances. This is an OSHA requirement.
Subcontractors will maintain a project specific MSDS on location for each hazardous chemical or substance
listed on the Master Chemical and Substance Inventory List. Prime subcontractors will be responsible to ensure
all sub-tier subcontractors have their project specific MSDS sheets at the project.
It will be the responsibility of each workers supervision or project manager to assure Material Safety Data
Sheets are received prior to, or at the time of delivery of, a hazardous chemical.
Project management and first-line supervision will ensure all hazardous chemicals are properly labeled in
accordance with the MSDS. Containers that hazardous chemicals have been transferred into for use during a
single work shift will be labeled as to contents.
Every worker on this project shall receive instruction from their employer on their Hazard Communication
Program, the location of the Master Hazardous Chemical and Substance Inventory list, the location of the
Material Safety Data Sheets, labeling requirements and specific safety or health instructions about the hazardous
chemical or substance.
Recommended minimum Hazard Communication Training will consist of:
1. The contents of the program
2. Prior to use of or the potential exposure to any hazardous chemical or substance, workers are to be
instructed in:
Physical and health hazards Personal protective equipment
Procedures to protect against the hazards Emergency procedures in case of
exposure or accidental spill
Engineering and administrative controls
3. Labeling requirements
4. Whenever a new chemical or substance is introduced into the workplace, workers will be briefed of its
hazards
The client, vendors, and subcontractors that may have business in or near a work area will be notified that
hazardous chemicals are being used and the hazards they may encounter.
If a worker believes they have encountered a hazardous chemical or substance unfamiliar to them, they will
immediately notify their supervisor. Project management or supervision will attempt to identify the hazardous
chemical or substance and initiate all precautions to handle and dispose of this material, if required, and to
properly protect workers.

Appendix N: Voluntary Use of a Disposable Respirator

I __________________________________________ am requesting to use a disposable paper filter respirator,


also known as a Dust Mask for my personal comfort.

I will be performing the following work task: (Example Sweeping Floor, etc.)

I clearly described the task I am to perform to my supervisor or safety coordinator and upon evaluating the task
they determined I should not be exposed to a hazardous chemical or substance.

I have been supplied the following Dust Mask:


Brand: Model:

I understand that the disposable dust mask is for personal comfort and not intended to protect me from a
hazardous chemical or substance. I further understand the voluntary use is limited to the task described above.
Please read the following:

Appendix D to Sec. 1910.134 (Mandatory) Information for Employees Using Respirators When Not Required Under the Standard
Respirators are an effective method of protection against designated hazards when properly selected and worn. Respirators use is
encouraged, even when exposures are below the exposure limit, to provide an additional level of comfort and protection for workers.
However, if a respirator is used improperly or not kept clean, the respirator itself can become a hazard to the worker. Sometimes, workers
may wear respirators to avoid exposures to hazards, even if the amount of hazardous substances does not exceed the limits set by OSHA
standards. If your employer provides respirators for your voluntary use, or if you provide your own respirator, you need to take certain
precautions to be sure that the respirator itself does not present a hazard.
You should do the following:
1. Read and heed all instructions provided by the manufacturer on use, maintenance, cleaning and care, and warnings regarding the
respirators limitations.
2. Choose respirators certified for use to protect against the contaminant of concern, NIOSH, the National Institute for Occupational
Safety and Health of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services certifies respirators. A label or statement of certification
should appear on the respirator or respirator packaging. It will tell you what the respirator is designed for and how much it will protect
you.
3. Do not wear your respirator into atmospheres containing contaminants for which your respirator is not designed to protect against. For
example, a respirator designed to filter dust particles will not protect you against gases, vapors, or very small solid particles of fumes or
smoke.
4. Keep track of your respirator so that you do not mistakenly use someone elses respirator.

I have read the above section from the OSHA standard for respiratory protection and understand its
content. I further understand that I am responsible for the care, maintenance/upkeep, and proper
storage of this respirator. Instructions on the proper wear were made available to me.
