Construction Safety

The Safety Group Ltd. (TSG) offers a Safety Division that serves the areas of construction safety, fire safety, oil drilling safety, and emergency preparedness across the United States. Each area of services comes with rigorous training to ensure construction safety on all jobsites.

The Safety Group Ltd. specializes in providing construction jobsite safety services to major construction projects by staffing licensed site safety managers, and construction fire safety managers on construction sites, conducting safety audits and inspections, and developing and filing site safety plans, health and safety plans, and other construction-related plans.

TSG contracts with developers, contractors, facility owners, and subcontractors to ensure that their workforce is knowledgeable about common hazards and certified to work at the site.

TSG is the premier safety company in New York City. Our Site Safety Division is staffed with NYC-licensed Site safety managers and coordinators, which we assign to major construction sites to promote safety procedures and to comply with NYC Department of Buildings requirements. With site safety managers and coordinators onsite, contractors and developers:

  • Reduce injuries and fatalities on the job
  • Reduce the likelihood of incurring OSHA, DOB and other fines
  • Reduce workers' compensation premiums
  • Improve safety and increase profitability

OUR NEW YORK AND PHILADELPHIA CONSTRUCTION SAFETY SERVICES INCLUDE:

LICENSED SITE SAFETY MANAGERS Required on NYC construction projects:

  • 15 stories or greater;
  • Have a building footprint greater than 100,000 square feet;
  • When required by the Department of Buildings

LICENSED SITE SAFETY COORDINATORS Required on NYC construction projects:

  • When required by the Department of Buildings

CONSTRUCTION SITE FIRE SAFETY MANAGER

On June 1, 2011, the New York City Fire Department began enforcing Section 1408 of the fire code. This requires all major building construction sites (those requiring either a Site Safety Manager or Site Safety Coordinator) to comply with the following:

  • A construction site fire safety manager onsite whenever a site safety manager or coordinator is onsite;
  • A gang box, meeting FDNY requirements as to contents, size and markings, be onsite;
  • A pre-fire safety plan be written and available;
  • Floor plans for each floor delineating evacuation routes must be available;
  • Standpipe riser diagram onsite;
  • Several log books available onsite.

The Safety Group addresses the evolving requirements of building and safety codes. To address the new requirements of New York City building construction sites, our team has implemented site safety managers and coordinators that have been trained and certified as construction site fire safety managers, with the ability to prepare the Construction pre-fire safety plan.

CONCRETE SAFETY MANAGERS

A Concrete Safety Manager must be on site when the concrete portion of the project involves the pouring of a minimum of 2,000 cubic yards of concrete or such lesser amount as the commissioner may determine by rule. http://www.nyc.gov/html/dob/downloads

TSG can provide concrete safety managers for your projects.

 

SAFETY INSPECTIONS AND AUDITS

Safety and health compliance audits and inspections are cost-effective tools for a construction manager.  In such an audit, an experienced Site-Safety coordinator trained to ascertain compliance issues inspects your construction site and recommends corrective action as necessary.  Varying by your needs and the size of your job, the typical safety audit includes a site inspection followed by a bound, written report.  The audit report includes digital photographs itemizing the would-be citations and their respective safety code references.  The referenced codes include city, state and federal OSHA regulations.  The report also includes items that can be used as benchmarking data for your company.

SAFETY PLANS AND PROGRAMS

TSG prepares and files required plans with the NYC Department of Buildings’ best squad. Plans must be filed and approved by the Department of Buildings prior to permits being issued. Key plans are:

  • Site Safety Plans
  • Health and Safety Plans
  • Noise Mitigation Plans
  • Excavation Plans
  • Logistics Plans
  • Tenant Protection Plans

New York and Philadelphia Construction Safety training programs can be developed as part of the overall plan. These include classroom training and toolbox talks, health and safety programs, and accident & loss prevention programs.
