IMPORTANT: The following alternate emergency phone numbers replace the use of “911” when calling from a
cell phone. These numbers should be used for emergencies only. Prior to beginning operations in an applicable
area, it is recommended that you program the number in your cell phone for easy dialing. If you are working in an
area not listed below, contact the local police department and ask for the “seven-digit emergency line.”
For general inquiries and routine reports, contact the police department’s main number (call information).

                                       Crisis Management – Field Response


In the event of a major crisis or incident, the following guidelines are established to assist field personnel who
are the first individuals on the scene. The first, and most important, action to be taken is to remain calm, and
then take the following steps necessary to provide for the protection of life and property:

Checklist:

       Call 911 and request the applicable emergency services needed.
       If anyone is injured, and you are trained and certified, administer First Aid.
       Secure the site. Your Leadman should assist with securing the job site and directing all field personnel to
       the designated area (away from the media).
       Contact the following individuals (order of contact):
            Brian Ongaro, Senior VP of Operations                 (707) 953-9624
            1
              Julie Thornton, Claims & Safety Director            (707) 480-4812
            2
              Area Superintendents
                      Jess Todd         (707) 953-2843
                      Nick Basich       (707) 953-4236
                      Ralph Ardito      (707) 953.9602
       Instruct all field personnel to refrain from talking to the Media. If questioned by legitimate authorities
       (Police, Fire, OSHA, etc.), they should cooperate, but keep their answers confined to the facts known.
       If approached by the media, you may stress the following (example wording):
                  “We are working to get the situation under control and can not respond to
                  any questions at this time.”
                  “The company designated spokesperson will be able to respond to any
                  questions, after the situation is secured and the facts are gathered.”
       NEVER release the name(s) of injured individuals to the Media.
       As with all incidents, take pictures and obtain names and contact information on witnesses and involved
       parties. Document all relevant details to include responding authorities.

                                  Drug Testing Facilities


GCC REQUIRES POST-ACCIDENT DRUG TESTING ON ALL EMPLOYEES. If the employee is at-
fault, or liability is questionable, drug testing is mandatory. Please contact Julie at (707) 480-4812 to
advise location of testing facility.

IMPORTANT NOTE: When directing the employee to a facility for testing, if there is 1 reasonable suspicion
that the employee may be intoxicated and or under the influence of a substance, the employee should not be
permitted to drive (provide transportation, as appropriate).

Preferred locations for post-accident drug testing (please call ahead for directions):
     Concentra Medical Centers (8am to 5pm)
        Rohnert Park – 6174 State Farm Drive                         (707) 586-4320

          Petaluma – 3900 Lakeville Hwy                              (707) 765-3940

ON-SITE (Drug) Testing/Post-Accident (707) 588-1234 (OPTIONAL)
     Foremen: Contact Julie Thornton or the Job Superintendent before scheduling ON-SITE to perform the drug test. Not all
     locations can be accommodated due to distance and or time of day.
     1. Contact ON-SITE Medical Testing @ (800) 564-9152
     2. Upon arrival, the examiner will “dry room” the facility (blue room)
     3. The Foreman/Superintendent will notify the employee to conduct testing
     4. The examiner administers the collection. Using a Rapid Drug Screen device, results will be acquired within 10
          minutes. If the test is NEGATIVE, the results are recorded on a test form and the employee is released. The employee
          should report to the Foreman/Superintendent with the negative test result.
     5. If a negative result is not provided to the employee, the examiner will leave with the specimen for continued processing
          and confirmation to be provided to GCC designated personnel.
     6. Employees that do not receive a confirmed-negative result when the test is performed will not be permitted to continue
          working.
          • Employees should be advised by the Foreman/Superintendent:
               “Until a negative test result is provided, they will not be permitted to work.”
          • Employees should arrange to be picked-up from the job site, or taken home if necessary.
          • Employees will be paid based on union requirements, for the day work was performed.
          • If a negative test result is confirmed by the Medical Review Officer and the employee had not been permitted to
               work, the employee will be entitled to full pay for the days missed.
          • If the test is determined to be positive, the employee is not entitled to be paid for the missed time (except for the
               day the accident occurred), and the appropriate process for addressing positive test results will be initiated.




1
   Reasonable suspicion means suspicion based on specific personal observations that the employer representative
can describe concerning the appearance, behavior, speech, or the breath odor of the employee (where the odor is
detected in addition to appearance, behavior, or speech). Suspicion is not reasonable, and thus not a basis for
testing, if it is based solely on the observations and reports of third parties.

                               Time Sheet Procedures



GENERAL INFORMATION
Documentation of the daily occurrence on your job is a vital part of project reporting. This information starts
with the field and can only be accurately documented by the Project Foreman.

Foremen are required to provide a detailed daily time sheet with an accurate listing of employees and their
hours, equipment and the equipment hours, quantities, materials, subcontractors, and rentals. It is also
necessary to record your time sheet with a diary of the work performed and all occurrences taking place on
your jobsite on a daily basis, to include the condition of the jobsite at the end of the day (i.e. condition of the
job site to include matters of safety).

Your time sheet is not just a source for payroll purposes; it is utilized as back-up support justifying contract and
change order work billings to owners as well as back charges to other companies. In addition to billing support,
the time sheets are legal documents supporting our company should any claims arise.

Important Reminders:

•   Sign the Time Sheet on the line provided.
•   Make sure your Time Sheet correctly reflects the employee’s working for you.
•   All Supervisors are required to turn in time sheets to the main office on a DAILY basis. Friday, Saturday
    and “Lingering” time sheets are due by the end of the day on Monday. Processing will take place on
    Tuesday (no exceptions). To allow for internal processing requirements (bank deadlines), input is not
    possible on Tuesday mornings.

If you have any questions, or would like additional training, feel free to contact the VP/Operations Manager,
Brian Ongaro.

Following are the procedures necessary for creating an accurate time sheet. Some of the information
will be pre-printed, but it is your responsibility to ensure that the information is accurate.



JOB & DATE INFORMATION
1. JOB NUMBER: The “Job Number” must be documented. It is not necessary to document the name of
   the job. If you are unaware of the “Job Number,” contact the Area Manager Assistant or the Area
   Manager.
2. WEATHER: Report the weather conditions for the day.
3. DATE: There have been many instances where an incorrect date has been documented. Verify the date
   recorded is correct.
4. DAY: The day of the week should be indicated. Make sure it is correct.
5. START TIME: Record the start time of your entire crew on this line. Should any of your employees
   report to the jobsite at a different time, notate this information on your time sheet. A brief explanation
   should be reference in your diary.
6. DAY/NIGHT: An appropriate check under “Day” or “Night” is required.

PHASE NUMBER INFORMATION

1. ITEM NUMBER: List the “CORRECT” phase number ONLY as it applies to the work performed as
   shown in the diagram below. Receipt of a time sheet referencing a description of the item number instead
   of the actual number is incorrect. If you have not received the project budget, contact either the Area
   Manager’s Assistant or the Area Manager immediately.
2. CHANGE ORDER NUMBER (C.O.): List the “CORRECT” c.o. number as it applies to the work
   performed in the specific section. A list of the project c.o. numbers together with the description may be
   obtained from the Area Manager’s Assistant. All NEW change order numbers must be acquired
   immediately and no later than the end of the work day from the Area Manager’s Assistant. The Area
   Manager’s Assistant will issue an updated list of the project c.o. numbers with descriptions to the Project
   Foreman at the end of the week or at the request of the Foreman. This list will only be issued if there has
   been activity or changes.

3. EQUIP NO: Every piece of equipment, owned or rented, is assigned an equipment number. Rental
   equipment is assigned a number beginning with “X”. If you are unaware of the assigned equipment
   number for equipment located on your jobsite, contact Dispatch or the Equipment Department and we will
   provide you with the correct number.

The following is a view of the time sheet section the above procedures apply to. Reference each by their
corresponding number:

REPORTING HOURS
1. LABOR HOURS: Allocate all labor hours for each employee by placing the number of hours under
   the item or change order number box which work was performed. It is also the Foreman’s responsibility
   to indicate where overtime hours should be applied. This may be done by reporting the “number of
   overtime hours” in the upper left corner of the box, a “slash” in the center of the box, and the “number
   of straight time hours” in the bottom right corner of the box, and a “0” in the bottom right corner of the
   box (as referenced in our diagram under “Item Number 30-10-600” on the following page). Each of the
   employee’s total hours reported must calculate correctly with the number of hours allocated in the
   item/c.o. number(s) box. For those employees performing work at more than one jobsite, it is required
   by all Foremen to document this on his timesheet by reporting the employee as “See Job 5001”.
    If you are utilizing one of GCC’s Teamsters, be sure to collect his time sheet (copy of the GCC Teamster
    Time Sheet) at the end of the day. It will be the responsibility of the Project foreman to assign the time/c.o.
    number(s) for work performed by the Teamster. The Foreman shall list the Teamster and the equipment
    operated on his time sheet (as he does with all workers on his crew). The time card completed by the
    Teamster will be submitted as a back-up tag together with all other tags and turned in to the Area Manager
    with your time sheet. It is the responsibility of the Teamster to track load counts, tag numbers of material
    loads and/or dumps and tonnage amounts per load from origination to destination on his time card report.
    The Foreman is required to document this information on his time sheet under “Daily Quantities, Materials &
    Rentals” (please refer to Section 5 for further instruction). If the Teamster is not being utilized at your jobsite
    for the entire day, please confirm with the Teamster the number of hours being charged to your project and
    record his next destination or his origination (i.e. See Job 5001) on your time sheet. The Teamster will sign
    out and submit his time card to you and will begin a new time card for his next task and/or new jobsite. It
    will not be the responsibility of the Foreman to track GCC Teamsters transporting equipment to the various
    jobsites. The Teamster will be responsible to track the total number of hours together with the jobsite he has
    delivered equipment to. The Teamster will then turn his time card into Dispatch for approval and processing.
    Any Foreman utilizing an Operating Engineer Apprentice is required to document “when” and “why” (i.e.
    weather, personal, doctor appointment, car problems, ill, etc) his apprentice is absent for any part of the
    workday.

REPORTING HOURS - CONTINUED
2. EQUIPMENT HOURS: It is REQUIRED to list all equipment by its assigned equipment number,
   UTILIZED OR NOT, on your time sheet. Refer to the following guidelines for “Available” and “Stand-
   by” Equipment:

    “Available” Equipment:

    •    “Available” means a specific piece of equipment is no longer needed on the job.
    •    If you have equipment that becomes “Available” at your jobsite, contact Dispatch immediately.
    •    With equipment that is Available, hours do not need to be charged to the machine, but expect it to be
         moved out at anytime.
    •    If it is “Available” document it on your time sheet and Work Schedule.

    “Stand-by” Equipment:

    •    “Stand-by” means a specific piece of equipment is not needed until a later date (i.e. whether it is 1 day
         or 1 month).
    •    If you have equipment that is on “Stand-by” notify Dispatch immediately on the duration of its idle
         time.
    •    For equipment that is on Standby, a minimum of 4-hours must be charged.
    •    For Rental Equipment that is on Stand-by, a minimum of 8-hours must be charged (unless Damon
         Calegari has arranged an hourly agreement with the rental agency).
    •    If it is “Standby” document it on your time sheet and Work Schedule.

    When ordering GCC vehicles, you must let Dispatch know who is driving the vehicle. Not only will the
    employee be matched up with the vehicle on the time sheet, but this will also help us know who is
    responsible for which vehicle.

REPORTING QUANTITIES, MATERIALS & RENTALS

1. QUANTITIES: IMPORTANT! When reporting quantities for each item of work, refer to the project
   budget. The “Unit of Measure” reported MUST match the “Unit of Measure” specified in the budget.
   Foremen are REQUIRED to report quantities on their time sheet DAILY. Document this information
   on the row entitled “Daily Quantities” under the box available for each item number shown in the
   diagram below. It is not necessary to report quantities for change order work, although, if you are
   aware that the work performed completes the scope of that change order, indicate this by documenting
   “100%” under the quantity box for that change order number. When reporting quantities for rental
   trucking and GCC Teamster trucking, be sure to separate the total amount reported by the GCC
   Teamster from the total amount reported for the rental.
2. MATERIALS: All materials either received or ordered is REQUIRED to be reported on your time
   sheet DAILY. Materials received are to be listed by the vendor name, a brief description of the
   material, the total quantity amount and the tag number. (It will not be necessary to list tag numbers for
   numerous material receipts by the same vendor). It is necessary to indicate which item/change order
   number(s) are to be charged for the material by placing an “X” in the appropriate item/change order
   number box. If the cost for materials is to be split by 2 or more item/c.o. numbers, document the exact
   quantity amount in the appropriate item/c.o. box under the header listing the vendor and material
   information. FOREMEN ARE REQUIRED TO SUBMIT ALL BACK-UP TAGS TOGETHER
   WITH TIME SHEETS ON A DAILY BASIS. Back-up tags are also to be documented with the
   item/c.o. numbers (consistent with the information provided on your time sheet) for application of costs.
3. RENTALS: Document all rentals consistent with material documentation by listing the rental
   company, a brief description of the rental and the tag number. Indicate the appropriate item/c.o.
   number(s) to be charged for this rental. It the cost of the rental is to be split by 2 or more item/c.o.
   numbers, document the length of rental time (i.e. hours, days, amounts, etc.) under each item/c.o.
   numbers on your time sheet. This information is also required to be documented on the back-up tag
   supplied by the rental company. Document your time sheet with the broker name as well as “How
   Many” and “What Type” of trucks. When reporting the trucking quantities, be sure to match the units.
   It the trucker is to be paid per ton, document the quantity of tons (excluding the GCC tonnage). If it is
   per hour, document the hours (excluding the GCC hours). The same applies if the trucker is paid per
   load (also address in Section 4 under labor Hours of this procedure manual). It is also extremely
   important to document the sign-out time on each trucker tag (the actual time the truck was signed-out).

       is completed before work begins, documentation is not mandatory).
   • Note any accidents and/or injuries that occurred at the job site, no matter how insignificant. A
       detailed report must be completed on the applicable company required form.
   • Document job or task specific training (i.e. flagging operations, new-hire orientation).

                                     Accident Investigation Guidelines


The purpose of an investigation is to find the cause of an accident, assist with proper handling, and prevention
of further occurrences. Following are the basic rules for conducting an accident investigation:

Observe and Analyze the Situation:
•    First look for danger signs and determine any action needed to protect lives and property. If dealing with a
     severe injury, assist only to the extent necessary, unless you have been properly trained to administer
     emergency medical care.
•    Request proper authorities be notified (i.e., ambulance, fire, policy). Management will make the
     determination as to whether or not OSHA should be notified.
•    Cooperate with the proper authorities and keep responses to known specifics.

Take Charge of the Investigation:
•    Gather and document facts as soon as possible.
•    Identify involved parties and the cause of the accident while the facts are fresh.
•    Keep documentation specific in nature. Do not document speculations, unless you are quoting a statement
     provided by another individual.

Identify Contributing Factors:
•    Was a subcontractor involved? If yes, request that they provide an accident report.
•    Did the incident occur due to a product owned and/or operated by a 3rd party?
•    Did a defective product contribute to the incident occurring? Determine and document name of owner
     and/or manufacturer.

Locate Witnesses:
•    Obtain names of all witnesses and request written statements be provided. Identify the relationship.
     Obtain contact information, including the name and phone number of their nearest relative, in the event
     that they re-locate.
•    Document names of individuals that may have knowledge of the incident, but may have not been present
     at the time.

Survey Accident Site & Take Pictures!
•    Take pictures! Pictures should include any apparent medical evidence, personal affects, equipment,
     instrumental readings and control positions, and any evidence, which is removable (i.e. barricades,
     temporary railing, caution tape, etc.).
•    Use diagrams as needed and take measurements when appropriate. Also, attempt to include measurements
     within a picture, if possible.
•    Details are important. If weather or other circumstances possibly contributed to the accident, document it.

Preserve Evidence:
•    Save physical evidence, if possible.

                                  Damaged Utilities – Claim Procedures


Before any investigation begins, the first thing that must be done is to ensure that the site is safe and that the
general public in the area is not in danger. When entering a jobsite to perform an investigation, the
investigator must follow applicable safety rules and policies, and must never enter into a trench, confined
space, or work area unless it is safe to do so.

Incident Procedures:

1. Investigate Immediately
   A thorough investigation of any accident or utility damage must include an examination of the events
   leading up to the incident.
           Was there a locate request?
           Was there a miss-locate?
           Were the marks removed or did they fade away?
           Did the operator maintain the proper tolerance zone?
           Was the depth of the line verified before digging?
           Were crossing lines potholed in advance?
           Did the utility line veer off course due to an underground obstruction?

2. Document Details
   All information should be collected in a timely manner, clearly documented, legible, accurate, and factual.
            Pictures should be taken at the site to document the damage (use a sign board to document the
            location in the picture)
            The location of marks in relation to the trench, and any other conditions should be documented
            Obtain the following information:
                Date & Time                 Type of Facility                 Name of repair technicians
                Location                    Owner of Facility
                One-call Ticket             Locator Name (if known)
                Number                      Investigator for Owner
               Inspect the site to determine the types of markings (paint, flags, stakes, whiskers) used to identify
               the facilities in the area
               Make a judgment about the accuracy of the marks and the quality of the marks
               Make a record (diagram) of all the pictures and the direction in which each picture was taken.
               Use a measuring devise with large numbers to document the actual depth and location
               Determine the size and type of facility that was hit and the extent of the damage, if possible
               Determine if surrounding businesses, homes, etc. were affected by the damaged utility

                                     Injury Reporting Procedures (Work Comp)


ALL EMPLOYEE INJURIES OR ILLNESSES MUST BE REPORTED IMMEDIATELY, NO MATTER
HOW MINOR THE INJURY OR ILLNESS APPEARS.

Supervisors/Foremen Procedures:

     If appropriate, and properly trained, provide on-site First Aid treatment.

     If medical treatment is needed, the employee should be referred to the closest GCC Designated Medical
     facility (refer to the Designated Medical Facilities under Section 1 – Quick Reference Materials). If it is
     an emergency, call 911 or transport the employee to the nearest emergency facility.

     Contact 1 Julie at (707) 480-4812 to report the injury.

     If possible, or if there is any question as to whether or not the employee should drive, accompany the
     employee to the doctor’s office.

     The supervising Foreman or Superintendent must complete the “Supervisor’s Report of Injury - WC” form
     and provide to Julie for processing. Note: The form must be completed within the same workday.

     The injured worker will be required to meet with Julie at the Santa Rosa office (alternate arrangements can
     be made when needed due to location, etc.). Instruct the employee to make contact with Julie @ (707)
     585-1221.


If you have any questions as to how to proceed, or if the employee refuses need for treatment, contact
Julie immediately.


          Please communicate any RED FLAGS when reporting the injury:
              A delayed report
              A new employee
              Injuries not consistent with assigned job duties
              Injuries not consistent with the facts of the accident
              Injuries occurring at the beginning or end of work shift
              An un-witnessed injury
              An injury report following an announcement of impending reduction in force or other employee-
              perceived threat to job security.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you become aware of a non-industrial injury, please advise Julie. If a worker has
been off due to a non-industrial injury (i.e. car accident, skiing injury, etc.) they will still be required to obtain
a release to return to work.

                              Work Comp Guidelines



Following are general guidelines to assist with the management of work-related injuries and illnesses. When
unsure of the proper procedures, contact Julie at the Santa Rosa office.

1. When an accident occurs on the job, which results in injury to an employee, it is mandatory that medical
   treatment be rendered.

2. In situations where the employee indicates that no injury was sustained, but the exposure is significant (i.e.
   equipment roll-over), medical observation is mandatory.

3. No employee will be permitted to return to work without medical clearance.

4. Ghilotti Construction Company maintains the first 30-days medical control, unless the employee had
   designated their own medical provider (in writing) prior to the injury occurring.

5. Injured employees should be directed to the nearest GCC Designated Medical facility, unless emergency
   treatment is necessary, at which time they should be taken to the nearest emergency room.

6. An Incident Report form must be completed by the lead Foreman or Superintendent and turned in to Julie
   at the Santa Rosa office within 1 working day. (Refer to the Cal/OSHA Injury Reporting guidelines for
   special instructions)

7. The injured worker will be required to meet with Julie at the Santa Rosa office (alternate arrangements can
   be made when needed due to location, etc.). The employee should be instructed to contact Julie @
   (707) 585-1221.



Temporary Light/Modified Duty:

1. When an employee is injured on the job and is released to modified or light duty, it is the policy of Ghilotti
   Construction Company to evaluate the ability to return the employee to work, within the restrictions noted
   by the treating physician.

2. Written Return-To-Work authorization, outlining the work restrictions, must be obtained from the
   designated medical provider, before the employee can return to work.

3. When returning an employee to temporary modified duty, contact Julie at the Santa Rosa Office to ensure
   that the appropriate documentation has been processed.

For specific guidelines on returning employees to temporary modified positions, review the Return to Work
Program, edition date 04/02.


Note: For injuries and illnesses not related to employment, a medical release is required before the employee
will be permitted to return to work.

             than observation only)
         • Any employee that suffers a loss of any member of the body
         • Any employee that suffers a serious degree of physical disfigurement
         Serious Exposures
         • One or more employees that have been exposed to a hazardous substance and the exposure is
             to the extent that there is substantial probability that death or serious physical harm could
             result in the present or future
         Catastrophe
         • Inpatient hospitalization of 3 or more employees due to a workplace hazard or condition,
             regardless of duration of hospitalization or if actual treatment is administered

                              Trenching/Excavation Operations


Competent Person Responsibility:
The designated Competent Person must be on site to identify hazards at all times. If the Competent Person
finds evidence of a hazard, workers must be removed from the dangerous area. No employee is to be
permitted to enter a trench or excavation unless the Competent Person is on site. The following minimum
guidelines have been established:
         An inspection must be completed at the beginning of each shift in order to identify any new hazards
         and or changes in the classification of soil. Document any adjustments on the daily time sheet.
         Routine visual inspections must be completed throughout the shift.
         When unsure of the correct soil classification and/or type of protection required, contact Tom
         Woosley, the Area Superintendent, or Brian Ongaro immediately. As appropriate, the services of an
         independent soils engineer will be obtained.

If you are placed in charge of jobsite activities, even if only temporarily, and you do not feel you have received
the appropriate training to meet the definition of a Competent Person, please speak to your supervisor or Brian
Ongaro immediately.

Any employee left in charge of a jobsite must be educated and be able to respond appropriately in the event of
any identified hazardous condition or practice.

Trenching/Excavation Checklist:
For designated projects (to be established by Safety Committee), a GCC Trenching/Excavation Checklist must
be completed on a daily basis and turned in with the daily time sheet for recordkeeping. The checklist will be
attached to the daily time sheet by dispatch for designated projects. At a minimum, the information outlined
on the checklist must be evaluated daily, and as hazards change, for all trenching operations.

                               Competent Person (Cal/OSHA Requirements)


Cal/OSHA Construction Safety Orders define “Competent Person” as:
         “One who is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in the surroundings or
         working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous to employees, and who has
         authorization to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate them.” (§1504)

The term “Competent Person” is used in many Cal/OSHA standards. In a broad sense a Competent Person is
an individual who, through training and/or experience, is:
         Knowledgeable of applicable standards,
         Capable of identifying site specific workplace hazards,
         Designated by the employer, and
         Has authority to take appropriate corrective actions

With respect to trench and excavation exposures, Cal/OSHA requires that site evaluations and safety
provisions be carried out by a Competent Person. Under Cal/OSHA Policies and Procedures, a Competent
Person may be interviewed by a Cal/OSHA inspector to determine whether that person has knowledge of:
         The Title 8 requirements for excavations, trenches and earthwork,
         Use of protective systems,
         Soil analysis as required in Title 8 provisions pertaining to trenches, excavations, and earthwork, and
         Ability to recognize and test for hazardous atmospheres

Knowledge and ability will be demonstrated through training or experience, and by performance, as follows:
         Training shall be determined by furnishing a copy of a certificate, a letter or other written evidence,
         indicating completion of competent person training conducted by the employer, an employer
         association, or third party trainer, or
         Experience shall be determined by asking the designated competent person to satisfactorily
         demonstrate that they have acquired the requisite knowledge and ability through previous experience,
         and
         Performance shall be determined by an evaluation of whether the competent person has been given the
         required authority and has fulfilled the responsibilities of the competent person.

To comply with training requirements, all Leadmen, Foremen, and Superintendents must complete the required
ClickSafety training (or classroom training) to meet the definition of a “Competent Person.”

The designated Competent Person must be on site to identify hazards. If the Competent Person finds evidence
of a hazard, workers must be removed from the dangerous area. No employee is to be permitted to enter a
trench or excavation unless the Competent Person is on site.

For designated projects (to be established by Safety Committee), a GCC Trenching Checklist must be
completed on a daily basis and turned in with the daily Time Sheet for recordkeeping. The Checklist will be
attached to the daily Time Sheet by dispatch for designated projects. At a minimum, the information outlined
on the checklist must be evaluated, daily and as hazards change, for all trenching operations.
If you are placed in charge of job site activities, even if only temporarily, and you do not feel you have
received the appropriate training to meet the definition of a Competent Person, please speak to your supervisor
or Brian Ongaro immediately.

Any employee left in charge of a jobsite must be educated and be able to respond appropriately in the
event of any identified hazardous condition or practice.

                              Underground Service Marking Policy


GCC POLICY:

All requests for USA markings will be provided by the Superintendent, in writing, to Dispatch a minimum of
72 hours before work is to begin in the proposed area.

A minimum of two days prior to any excavation performed on a project by GCC, there will be a request faxed
or called in, by dispatch, to USA for proper identification of all known utilities within the proposed area of
work.

The service will be valid for 14 days from the date requested and requires renewal every 14 days from the prior
request. This renewal is required until all excavation is completed within the area marked by USA. The
renewals will take place until such time that the Superintendent notifies Dispatch that the project is complete
and/or that USA markings are no longer required.

                              Utility Delineation & Excavation Guidelines


USA must be contacted 48-hours (2 working days) before excavation begins.
     1. Outline your excavation area with white paint [4216.2 (a)]
     2. Call USA two working days before you dig [4216.2 (a)]
     3. USA will notify its members of your excavation [4216.2 (c)]
     4. The USA members will provide information about, mark, or stake the horizontal path of their
        facilities, or will advise of clearance [4216.3 (a)]
     5. Expose the underground facilities before using power equipment [4216.4]
        4216.4. (a) The excavator shall determine the exact location of subsurface installations in conflict
        with the excavation by excavating with hand tools within the area of the approximate location of
        subsurface installations as determined by the field marking provided in accordance with Section
        4216.3 before using any power-operated or power-driven excavating or boring equipment within the
        approximate location of the subsurface installation, except that power-operated or power-driven
        excavating or boring equipment may be used for the removal of any existing pavement if there are no
        subsurface installations contained in the pavement. If documented notice of the intent to use
        vacuum excavation devices, or power-operated or power-driven excavating or boring
        equipment, has been provided to the subsurface installation operator or operators and it is
        mutually agreeable with the operator or operators and the excavator, the excavator may utilize
        vacuum excavation devices, or power-operated or power-driven excavating or boring equipment
        within the approximate location of a subsurface installation and to any depth.
        (b) If the exact location of the subsurface installation cannot be determined by hand excavating in
        accordance with subdivision (a), the excavator shall request the operator to provide additional
        information to the excavator, to the extent that information is available to the operator, to enable the
        excavator to determine the exact location of the installation.
     6. Keep the USA request number to validate your excavation permit [4216.9 (a)]

General Excavation Information (Provided by USA North/Dig Safely Guidelines):
•    Prior to starting an excavation, examine the excavation site for physical evidence (manholes, valve covers,
     water meters, sewer cleanouts, vaults, utility maintenance boxes, pole risers, etc) that would indicate the
     existence of underground facilities. Always excavate, as cautiously and prudently as possible.
•    USA North accepts calls from excavation work on public or private property, on Military Bases, on
     Indigenous People’s Reservations and even on waterways within their covered territory.
•    Limit your excavation location description to a site that can be completed within a 28 calendar day period
     that the members can reasonably locate within 2 working days.
•    USA North limits excavation work to areas no longer in length than 1 ½ miles in a metropolitan area and 3
     miles in a rural area.
•    Dividing larger excavation areas into smaller manageable sites helps the members respond to the
     excavation site more promptly.
•    When working on private property the excavator should determine what facilities belong to the property
     owner and what easements may exist on the property, if any. In general, ownership of underground
     facilities transfers to the property owner behind the curb, behind the sidewalk, clean out, at the meter or
     point of entry.
•    USA North notifies only its members of the excavation work. Non-members should also be notified.

Five Steps to a Safe Excavation (Provided by USA North/Dig Safely Guidelines):
1. Survey and Mark: Survey the proposed excavation site. Make a list of affected operators of
   underground facilities (operators) at the job site, their needs and requirements. Mark the excavation site
   on paved surfaces with white spray chalk paint; use flags, stakes, whiskers, etc. on unpaved surfaces.
2. Call Before You Dig.
3. Wait the Required Time: The 2 working day notice allows USA North members to examine their
   underground facility records and respond.
4. Respect the Marks: Maintain facility marks for the duration of the job. In any of the operator markings
   are not reasonably visible, you must call USA North and request remarking.
5. Dig with Care: Facilities that are in conflict with the excavation are to be located and protected before
   power equipment is used.

Damage Notification (Provided by USA North/Dig Safely Guidelines):
•    An excavator discovering or causing damage to a subsurface installation shall notify the operator of the
     installation and USA North.
•    USA North will provide the excavator with the emergency telephone number of the member(s) whose
     utilities were damaged.

Emergency Notification (Provided by USA North/Dig Safely Guidelines):
•    If the damage results in the escape of any flammable, toxic, or corrosive gas or liquid or endangers life,
     health or property, the excavator responsible must immediately call 911 and notify the facility owner.
•    The excavator must take reasonable measures to protect themselves and those in immediate danger,
     general public, property, and the environment until the facility owner/operator or emergency responders
     have arrived and completed their assessment.


Guidelines for Excavator’s Delineation (Provided by USA North/Dig Safely Guidelines):

Single Point Excavations Markings

The following are examples of marking illustrations of how excavators may choose to mark their area of
proposed excavation. The use of white marking products (e.g. paint, flags, stakes, whiskers, or a combination
of these) may be used to identify the excavation site.


                                                     Delineate the proposed area of excavation through the use
                                                     of: a continuous line, dots marking the radius or arcs,
                                                     dashes marking the four corners of the project or dashes
                                                     outlining the excavation project. Limit the size of each
                                                     dash to approximately 6” to 12” in length and 1” in width
                                                     with interval spacing approximately 4’ to 50’ apart. The
                                                     mazimum separation of excavation marks is to be reduced
                                                     to a length that can be reasonably seen by the operator’s
                                                     locators when the terrain or excavation side conditions
                                                     warrant it.

                                                         When an excavation site is contained within a 50’
                                                         maximum radius, or less, it can be delineated with a
                                                         single stake that is positioned at the proposed center of
                                                         the excavation. If the excavator chooses this type of
                                                         delineation they must convey that they have delineated
                                                         the excavation site with a single stake at the center of the
                                                         excavation and include the radius of the site in the
                                                         notification to the One-Call Center. The single stake is
                                                         to be white in color with the following information:
excavator’s company identifier (name, abbreviations, or initials) and the radius of the excavation site in black
letters on the stake or with a notice attached to the stake.


                                                          Mark in white paint the proposed centerline of planned
                                                          excavation 6” to 12” x 1” arrows, approximately 4’ to 50’
                                                          apart to show direction of excavation. The maximum
                                                          separation of excavation marks is to be reduced to a
                                                          length that can be reasonably seen by the operator’s
                                                          locators when the terrain at an excavation site warrants it.
                                                          Mark lateral excavations with occasional arrows showing
                                                          excavation direction from centerline with marks at curb
                                                          or property line if crossed. Dots may be used for curves
                                                          and closer interval marking.



                                                        Delineate the proposed area of excavation through the use
                                                        of: stakes, flags or whiskers to mark radius or arcs, the
                                                        four corners of the project or outlining the excavation
                                                        project instead of using spray paint. Limit the interval
                                                        spacing to approximately 4’ to 50’. The maximum
                                                        separation of excavation marks is to be reduced to a
                                                        length that can be reasonably seen by the operator’s
                                                        locators when the terrain at an excavation site warrants it.
                                                        Stakes, flags, or whiskers provide to illustrate arcs or radii
may be placed at closer intervals in order to define the arc or radius. Stakes, flags or whiskers are white in color
with the excavator’s company identifier (name, abbreviations, or initials) provided on the stake, flag or whisker.

                              Contaminated Projects



This policy is intended to provide general guidelines for adhering to environmental safety and health
requirements when working in or around contaminated job sites.

    When specifications of a project indicate potential exposures to contaminated soil and ground water,
    the following procedures will apply:
    1. In coordination with the Project Manager and Owner/Developer, the designated Environmental Safety
       & Health Team (Pacific Northwest EnviroNet Group) will be retained to develop the Health and
       Safety Plan specific to the potential contaminates identified at the project.
    2. The GCC designated safety coordinator will be responsible for developing the job site binder, in
       accordance with the Health & Safety plan.
    3. Upon notification of the assigned crew, the GCC designated safety coordinator will be responsible for
       scheduling the required Blood Level Testing and Respirator Medical Clearance testing for designated
       employees that may be exposed to the yellow and red zones.
    4. Required Respirator Fit Testing will be conducted at the job site, prior to performing work in the
       designated zones.
    5. The Project Manager (or designated/trained individual) is responsible for maintaining the job site
       binder and required documentation. The binder will remain accessible at the job site during the course
       of the project.
    6. The Project Manager (or designated/trained individual) will be responsible for conducting the required
       testing in the green and yellow zones. All testing will be documented.
    7. The designated ES&H Team will be retained to conduct, and document, the required testing in all red
       zones.
    8. Upon receiving notification of completion of the project, the GCC designated safety coordinator will
       be responsible for scheduling the required post-job Blood Level Testing.

    Procedures upon discovery of contaminated soil, ground water, and debris during excavation,
    construction, or demolition projects:
    1. During construction, the Responsible Individual (Project Manager/Superintendent) will look for
       evidence of unexpected contamination (Discolored, Malodorous, or Suspected Contamination in Soil).
    2. When contamination is suspected or identified, the Responsible Individual will:
           a. Stop work, and

                                Daily Hazard Inspections Policy



Subchapter 4 of the Cal/OSHA Construction Safety Orders, §1511, requires that:

     No worker shall be required or knowingly permitted to work in an unsafe place, unless for the purpose of
     making it safe and then only after proper precautions have been taken to protect the employee while doing
     such work.

     Prior to the presence of its employees, the employer shall make a thorough survey of the conditions of the
     site to determine, so far as practicable, the predictable hazards to employees and the kind and extent of
     safeguards necessary to prosecute the work in a safe manner.

The Cal/OSHA Safety Orders requires that documentation be maintained on all hazard inspections and
corrections.

To comply with these requirements, the following policy has been established:

1. Foremen will be required to complete a daily walk-through, before assigning job tasks and permitting
   employees to begin work.

2. Hazards that exist, but cannot be corrected immediately, will be communicated to all employees and
   affected individuals at the work site. Identified hazards and applicable training will be documented on the
   Daily Time Sheet.

                                   Non-Harassment Field Policy


GCC is committed to providing a work environment free of unlawful harassment. This includes sexual
harassment, as well as harassment based on such factors as race, color, creed, religion, national origin or
ancestry, age, gender identity, medical condition, marital status, physical or mental disability, sexual
orientation, or any other basis protected by federal, state or local law. All such harassment is unlawful.
This includes harassment based on the perception that a person possesses any of these characteristics, or is
associated with a person who possesses, or is perceived as possessing, any of these characteristics. GCC
will not tolerate harassment of our employees by anyone, including any supervisor, co-worker, vendor,
associate, or customer of ours.

Harassment Defined: Harassment refers to behavior that is unwelcome, is personally offensive, debilitates
morale, and interferes with the work performance and effectiveness of an employee. It includes inappropriate
and disrespectful conduct and communication. Prohibited harassment includes, but is not limited to, the
following behavior:

         Verbal conduct such as epithets, derogatory jokes or comments, slurs or unwanted sexual advances,
         invitations or comments;
         Visual conduct such as derogatory and/or sexually-oriented posters, photography, e-mails, cartoons,
         drawings or gestures;
         Physical conduct such as assault, unwanted touching, blocking normal movement or interfering with
         work because of sex, race or any other protected basis;
         Threats and/or demands to submit to sexual requests in order for an employee to keep their job, or to
         avoid some other loss, and offers of employment benefits in return for sexual favors;
         Retaliation for having reported or threatened to report harassment.

Violations: Violations of this policy will not be tolerated. Anyone engaging in such activity is acting beyond
the scope of any authority they may have from the Company. Any supervisor who is made aware of a
complaint of harassment and fails to take action will be subject to corrective action, which may include
termination.

Complaint Procedure: If you feel that you have experienced or witnessed harassment, you are encouraged to
first confront the individual (if you are comfortable doing so), and ask him or her to stop. The next step is to
notify a Superintendent or Brian Ongaro, verbally or in writing. GCC encourages all employees to report any
incidents of harassment immediately so that complaints can be quickly resolved.

No employee should feel they must tolerate an inappropriate or uncomfortable situation. We will take your
concerns seriously. Every complaint of harassment that is reported will be investigated thoroughly, promptly,
and in as confidential a manner as possible. If a harassment investigation determines that inappropriate and/or
unlawful harassment has occurred, GCC will take specific action that is in line with the severity of the offense.
Any employee determined by GCC to be responsible for harassment will be subject to appropriate corrective
action, up to and including termination of employment. In addition, appropriate action will be taken to prevent
any future harassment.

GCC will not retaliate against any employee for filing a complaint, and will not knowingly permit retaliation
by any representative of the organization. If we become aware of any retaliatory activity, appropriate
corrective action will be taken.

Your Rights: GCC encourages all employees to report any incidents of harassment immediately, using the
complaint procedures described above. You should also be aware that you have the right to contact your
respective Union Hall, the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the California
Department of Fair Employment & Housing (DFEH). The nearest offices are listed in the telephone book.

                              Supervising Field Personnel


It is common for a supervisor to achieve their position based on their knowledge and experience in a particular
craft. All of a sudden a new supervisor can find himself or herself responsible for an entire crew, craft or
department comprised of workers that used to be their peers. The new responsibilities not only include the
multitude of duties associated with production, but also the safety of each and every worker that they
supervise. They are in charge of orienting new employees, training new and existing employees, conducting
safety meetings and safety inspections, performing thorough accident investigations and so on. Success in
carrying out these duties requires a new set of skills.

To help, the following action steps are offered as tools for enhancing supervisory skills:

Communicating Performance Standards
• Meet with your crew to review the duties of their job. Make sure these duties are clearly understood.
• Discuss performance standards for each area of responsibly.
• Get commitment by having the individual describe the steps he or she will take to meet the standards.
• Ask for and respond to any questions or concerns.
• Tell the individual that you have confidence in his or her ability to achieve the performance standards, and
   encourage the him or her to ask you for any help, if needed.
• Follow-up with the individual in order to address any areas of concern that may have arisen since your
   original talk.

Delegating Responsibility:
• Indicate what new responsibly you want the employee to handle and why they are the right person for the
    job.
• Describe the new responsibility in detail, outlining the specific task, performance standards, and any
    training procedures needed.
• Don’t forget - to succeed, they need to be given the authority to be able to fulfill the responsibly.
• Ask for questions and comments.
• After dealing with any concerns, ask for a commitment and make it clear that you are available if help is
    needed.
• Remember, you can only delegate the duties. As a Supervisor, you still hold the responsibility to make
    certain the task is done correctly, and safely.

Dealing with Performance Problems:
• Focus on the performance problem rather than on the individual’s personality or attitude.
• Be prepared to clearly state the nature of the performance problem.
• Express you confidence in the individual’s ability to correct the problem.
• Praise the employee when the job performance has improved.
• If improvement does not occur, disciplinary action will need to be taken.
Note: When dealing with problem employees, speak to the VP of Operations to determine an appropriate
course of action for dealing with the individual.




Supervising_Employees_0906                                                      Foreman Procedure Manual – Section 11.10
                                 Ghilotti Construction Company
                                 Pre-Job Safety Planning


During construction projects, the work activity and site are constantly changing. New hazards are created with each
new phase. This situation creates some unique and difficult challenges in the area of safety management. One of
the best tools to help in meeting these challenges is Pre-Job Safety Planning. The chances of a successful result are
increased if proper planning is used. Safety planning will ensure that safety is taken into account along with costs,
schedules, quality, and other important goals. If it is not included in the planning stage, it is unlikely that safety will
receive much consideration during the actual construction process.

Planning for safety needs to start at the estimating phase. At Ghilotti Construction Company, the total bid budgets a
reasonable amount of money for this function.

Pre-Job Safety Planning Meeting:
A pre-job meeting should be held after the contract is awarded and before the project begins. This meeting should
be used to discuss the entire safety program and define responsibilities and any other special requirements for the
job. The five main items to address in the meeting are:
1.   Safety management strategies,
2.   Specific hazards and controls,
3.   Subcontractor requirements,
4.   Job hazard analysis, and
5.   Extra safety supplies needed for the project

Safety Management Strategies:
• Training: Training is the most important aspect of your program and is required by OSHA. Training begins
    with a thorough employee safety orientation. The orientation should include general information needed for
    every employee at the jobsite.
• Safety Inspections: A safety self-inspection program is necessary to ensure that unsafe conditions and practices
    are identified and corrected.
• Incident and Accident Investigations: Investigations are necessary in order to find out the cause so steps can be
    taken to prevent similar recurrences. Timely reporting of every incident and/or accident is essential for the
    investigation to be effective.

Subcontractors:
The activities of workers employed by one contractor can create hazards for workers employed by others in the
immediate area. In many states, the general or prime contractor assumes safety responsibility for all contractors and
workers on the project. Subcontractors need to be informed of the course of action that will be taken to resolve any
safety issues that arise due to subcontractor activity.

Conclusion: If you include safety in the early stages of the pre-job planning process, positive results will naturally
follow. Reductions in the frequency and severity of accidents will transform into higher productivity, lower
insurance costs, and a competitive advantage when bidding against other contractors for future projects.

                                  Conducting Effective Safety Meetings


The supervisor is the key person in any program to create and maintain interest in safety, and is responsible for
promoting safety among field personnel. How well you meet this responsibility will determine how favorably
field personnel adhere to safe work practices. Setting a good example is one of the most effective ways that
you can promote safety.

WHY ARE SAFETY MEETINGS IMPORTANT?
It is not only mandatory, but it is important to meet regularly with your crew to discuss the various aspects of
jobsite safety. Only through face-to-face contact can effective communication take place. The open, informal
atmosphere of a small group meeting is designed to encourage the kind of questions and discussion that
“personalize” the issues of safety by focusing on its day-to-day applications.

Safety meetings are designed to:
• Encourage safety awareness
• Get employees involved
• Motivate employees to following safety procedures
• Identify potential hazards and prevent accidents and injuries
• Introduce workers to new safety rules, equipment, and preventive practices

To be effective, try to relate the discussion to current working conditions at the jobsite. Following are the
basic steps that should be followed when conducting a meeting on almost any safety topic.
• Choose the topic - You do not have to use the topic provided. If there are issues present at the jobsite that
    need to be addressed, choose the appropriate topic from the tailgate library located in the old dispatch
    office.
• Introduce the topic - summarize the purpose of the subject and why it is relevant to the current working
    conditions.
• Present the facts - be concise as possible in providing the crew with any necessary background on the
    subject. Then present your facts and figures in as interesting a manner as possible.
• Demonstrate - Acting out, or role-playing, a safety procedure is one way of making sure your message
    has been received. Using visual aid is another way to demonstrate the subject and get the crew involved.
    It gives your meeting added impact and makes it more interesting.
• Open the meeting up for discussion - Use the discussion period to answer questions, clarify
    misunderstandings, and obtain feedback. An active discussion is usually a good indication that your
    meeting has been successful.

DO NOT JUST HAND THE FORM TO EMPLOYEE TO SIGN! It is important that relevant topics be
discussed and that field personnel are educated and informed about the potential exposures present at the
jobsite.

                              Subcontractor Safety Compliance



Under Cal/OSHA regulations, the following categories of employers can be cited for a violation, even if their
own employees were not exposed to the alleged (enforceable) unsafe condition.

          Controlling Employer: The employer who was responsible, by contract or through actual
          practice, for safety and health conditions on the worksite; i.e. the employer who had the
          authority for ensuring that the hazardous condition is corrected
          Exposing Employer: The employer whose employees were exposed to the hazard
          Creating Employer: The employer who actually created the hazard
          Correcting Employer: The employer who had the responsibility for actually correcting the
          hazard

When GCC is the responsible entity for overall site coordination on a project, and deemed responsible for
safety and health conditions at the work site, we are exposed to being cited as the “controlling employer”
and/or “correcting employer” for violations created by our subcontractor.

Subcontractors are contractually held responsible for providing a safe work place for its employees and to
comply with all laws, regulations, and orders issued by governing bodies, public officers, and Ghilotti
Construction Company. (Refer to Page 2)

To ensure Subcontractors to GCC are in compliance, and all hazardous exposures are identified and
communicated, the Lead Foreman is responsible for the following activities:
     Complete initial project orientation with the Subcontractor, to include matters of safety (2-way
     conversation should take place to ensure communication of known hazards respective of the work being
     performed by each party). Document that the meeting occurred on the Daily Time Sheet.
     Include matters of safety during progress meetings
     Accidents involving and/or caused by the subcontractor must be investigated (assist in the subcontractor’s
     investigation and obtain copy of their report, as appropriate)
     Require the Subcontractor, and their employees present at the work site, to participate at GCC’s weekly
     Safety Tailgate meetings. (Not applicable to suppliers and subcontractors with sporadic presence at the
     jobsite)
     Communicate and document identified safety violations created by the Subcontractor (provide to the Area
     Manager for response).

NOTE: Contact the Area Manager or Brian Ongaro with immediate concerns regarding Subcontractor safety
compliance.

GCC Subcontractors are contractually required to comply with the following safety guidelines:
1. Have readily available at the job site a copy of the Code of Safe Practices, specific to the scope of
   operations performed by the Subcontractor. If requested, the Subcontractor shall provide a written plan
   that identifies how Subcontractor will address specific safety concerns for his work performed on the
   project.

                     All employees will be trained on how to properly use fire suppression equipment
                     All employees will be instructed on the following:
                Assess the situation:
                     Any employee discovering a fire should quickly and carefully remove any person who is injured
                     or in immediate danger, unless doing so will create the possibility of personal injury
                     Employees in the immediate vicinity of the fire, as well as those in surrounding areas, who may
                     be threatened by the fire, must be notified of the existence of the fire
                     Only properly trained and authorized employees may attempt to extinguish a small fire, which
                     does not involve electrical components or hazardous substance.
                     If the fire appears to be to large, involves toxic substances, or is electrical based, all employees
                     are to leave the area immediately and notify management
                When the fire can not be extinguished using a portable fire extinguisher:
                     The lead employee will initiate the evacuation procedures
                     The fire will be reported to the appropriate agency(s)
                     The emergency evacuation alarm will be sounded
                     Without creating exposure to personal injury, attempts should be made to contain the fire, by
                     properly trained and designated employees only (i.e. closing doors and windows in the
                     immediate vicinity and removing any flammable materials)

                Including, but not limited to, Floods, Tornadoes, and Severe Thunderstorms
                Most natural disasters are usually forecast sufficiently in advance for emergency action to be
                initiated before the exposure becomes serious.
                In most cases, advising employees of the approaching danger and seeing to it that they are in a
                safe location will be sufficient, should the incident occur during normal working hours.

      10.d      Chemical Leak, Spill or Threatened Release
                The following procedures will be carried out in the event of a hazardous substance spill:

                     Notify the lead employee immediately
                     All employees, not trained to deal with the exposure, will be instructed to leave the immediate
                     area
                The lead and/or designated employee(s) will:
                     Determine the nature and source of the spill/release. MSDS will be used to determine the
                     characteristics of the material and identify necessary precautions for dealing with the material
                     Depending on the classification and amount of the spill, if warranted, the local fire department
                     and appropriate local environmental agency will be notified
                     Clean-up procedures will be performed by qualified personnel

                     Access to the building/job site will not be permitted until clearance is given by the appropriate
                     personnel (i.e. police, fire department)

      10.f      Civil Disturbance
                Civil disorders, usually in the form of large unruly crowds, can interfere with business operations
                and could cause damage to property and employees.

                               Substance Abuse Policy Summary


DRUG AND ALCOHOL POLICY STATEMENT
Ghilotti Construction Company (“GCC”) is committed to providing a safe work environment and promoting
the well-being and health of its employees. That commitment is jeopardized when any GCC employee
illegally uses drugs on the job, comes to work under the influence, or possesses, distributes, or sells drugs in
the workplace. These activities may adversely affect an employee's work performance, efficiency, safety, and
health, and therefore seriously impairs his/her value as an employee. In addition, these activities constitute a
potential danger to the welfare and safety of other employees and the public, and exposes GCC to risks of
property loss or damage.

The company Substance Abuse Policy is designed to be consistent with all current collective bargaining
agreements and includes provisions for mandatory pre-placement, post-accident, random, and reasonable
suspicion/for cause testing where applicable in the agreements. GCC has established the following guidelines:

    1. The company will not tolerate or condone substance abuse. It is the policy of GCC to maintain a
       workplace free from alcohol and other forms of drug abuse and its effects.
    2. It is a violation of company policy for any employee to possess, use, buy, trade, or offer for sale illegal
       drugs or otherwise engage in the illegal use of drugs on the job.
    3. It is a violation of company policy for anyone to report to work under the influence of illegal drugs.
    4. It is a violation of company policy for anyone to use prescription drugs illegally. However, nothing in
       this policy precludes the appropriate use of legally prescribed medications, unless doing so hinders the
       performance of essential job functions and/or creates identified safety hazards. Employees who
       believe, or have been informed, that their use of any prescription drug may present a safety risk are to
       report such drug use to their supervisor or management to insure the safety of themselves, other
       employees, the public, and employer property. It is a violation of this policy to utilize prescribed
       medication, during the course of employment, which impairs performance.
    5. The use of alcohol during work hours; or the abuse of prescribed drugs will be subject to disciplinary
       action up to and including termination.
    6. Violations of this policy are subject to disciplinary action up to and including immediate termination.
       Employees found to be engaged in the sale or purchase of illegal drugs during working hours shall be
       subject to immediate termination and shall not be eligible for rehire.

Ghilotti Construction Company expects the full support of this policy by all employees and all persons doing
business with the company.


EMPLOYEE VOLUNTARY REFERRALS
An employee who abuses drugs and/or alcohol is encouraged to participate in an Employee Voluntary Self-Help
Program. Employees who seek voluntary assistance for alcohol and/or substance abuse may not be disciplined
for seeking such assistance. GCC reserves the right to approve a reasonable time for a leave of absence under
this policy. The leave of absence will be handled confidentially. Voluntary assistance obtained independently, or
under the condition of an Informal Referral, will be considered confidential. No information can be released to
GCC without the employee’s written consent.

EMPLOYER/COMPANY RESPONSIBILITY
To provide a drug and alcohol-free working environment, GCC will:
    1. Establish definitive rules and regulations consistent with respective collective bargaining agreements.
    2. Provide increased awareness through training, education, and communication on the subject of alcohol
       and other drug abuse.
    3. Recognize that there may be employees who have an alcohol or other drug problem and stand willing
       to assist in the solution of that problem by encouraging employees to seek help through employee
       assistance programs provided by their respective unions.
    4. Administer a program that takes into consideration an employee’s rights and is within legal
       boundaries.
    5. Take any other actions deemed necessary and appropriate within guidelines established by the
       respective collective bargaining agreements, to include issuing Informal Referrals.
    6. Maintain consistent enforcement of the company Substance Abuse Policy. Any supervisor who
       knowingly permits a violation of this policy by employees under his/her direct supervision shall be
       subject to disciplinary action.
    7. Cooperate with outside law enforcement agencies.
    8. Conduct post-accident, and post-injury, drug and alcohol testing immediately following any accident
       that results in bodily injury or property damage, whether a citation is issued or not. Post-accident
       testing includes any accident that occurs during the course of work. This includes accidents in
       personal vehicles while performing job tasks.

EMPLOYEE RESPONSIBILITY
GCC believes that each employee has the responsibility to:
    1. Report to work at all times free of alcohol or other drugs and their effects.
    2. Not possess or use, or have the odor of alcohol or drugs on his/her breath.
    3. Seek and accept assistance for alcohol and drug abuse.
    4. Not operate GCC equipment, or engage in any work related activity when taking medications or drugs
       (prescription or non-prescription), and/or alcohol that may create an unsafe or dangerous situation for the
       employee, the public, or the employee’s co-workers, including but not limited to valium, muscle relaxants,
       and painkillers.
    5. Immediately report any incident involving property damage or bodily injury that would require post-
       accident/post-injury drug testing to the supervisor or management.
    6. Testing must be performed by a designated facility immediately after occurrence of an incident where the
       employee appears to be the cause of, or contributed to, an accident involving bodily injury or property
       damage. For on-site testing, the employee must remain at the job site location. If circumstances require
       off-site testing, the employee must be accompanied from the job site to a designated testing facility by a
       company-representative immediately, but not to exceed 4-hours, after occurrence.

DRUG AND ALCOHOL TESTING PROCEDURES
All testing will be coordinated through the Santa Rosa Office. Company individuals responsible for the
coordination include Senior Management, the Equipment Manager, Lead Dispatcher, and Executive
Administrator.

Substances that can be tested for include:
•   Alcohol                     •   Opiates                   •   Amphetamines
•   Marijuana                   •   Cocaine                   •   Methaqualone, by products
•   Barbiturates                •   PCP

Types of testing that can be performed include:
•   Urine, blood, breath (except for Carpenters 46 Counties: Urine Only)

Refusal by an employee to submit to testing will be considered cause for immediate discharge. Testing will be
performed under the following conditions, in compliance with collective bargaining agreements:

A. PRE-PLACEMENT TESTING
    Pre-placement testing is mandatory for all new hires (not employed by GCC within the last 30-
    days/Exception: 60-days for Pile Drivers). Employees will not be permitted to work while pending
    receipt of test results. An employee who refuses to submit to a drug/alcohol test when dispatched will not
    be employed by GCC, or receive show-up pay. For DOT regulated assignments, refer to the respective
    collective bargaining agreements for appropriate guidelines.

B. POST-ACCIDENT/POST-INJURY TESTING
    Post-Accident/Post-Injury testing is mandatory for all accidents resulting in bodily injury or property
    damage, unless employee is deemed an “innocent victim.” With respect to Pile Drivers, direct
    involvement is required to be subject to testing. With respect to all other collective bargaining
    agreements, testing can be performed whether the exposure is direct or indirect.

C. RANDOM DRUG TESTING
    GCC shall conduct random drug tests of only those employees for whom random testing is required by
    current D.O.T. regulations. Such testing shall be consistent with the requirements of applicable D.O.T.
    regulations and the respective collective bargaining agreements.

D. FOR CAUSE/REASONABLE SUSPICION TESTING
    When an authorized representative of Ghilotti Construction Company has "reasonable suspicion" to
    believe that the employee is under the influence of controlled substances, and/or alcohol, GCC may
    require the employee to submit to drug testing. In this situation, the Ghilotti Construction Company
    representative will inform the employee that he/she may have a union representative present.

    Reasonable suspicion means suspicion based on specific personal observations that the employer
    representative can describe concerning the appearance, behavior, speech, or the breath odor of the
    employee (where the odor is detected in addition to appearance, behavior, or speech). Suspicion is not
    reasonable, and thus not a basis for testing, if it is based solely on the observations and reports of third
    parties. The grounds for reasonable suspicion must be documented by two supervisors.

    The employee shall be informed that refusal to submit to testing will constitute a presumption of
    intoxication and subject the employee to immediate discharge. This will be raised in the event that
    Ghilotti Construction Company had reasonable suspicion for testing in the first place. The employee's
    refusal shall be in writing.




Substance-Abuse-Summary_0905                         3 of 5                      Foreman Procedure Manual – Section 15
    If the employee consents to the testing, he/she shall sign a consent form authorizing the collection of a
    specimen of urine and/or the conduct of an EBT test and a release of the results of the laboratory testing
    and/or EBT test to Ghilotti Construction.

    Before the actual drug testing, the employee will be examined by a medical doctor at the designated
    facility. This examination will be made to determine whether the conduct or behavior observed may have
    been caused by a reason other than the possible influence of drugs and/or alcohol. If the medical doctor
    decides that the conduct or behavior observed by the supervisor is for a reason other than possible
    influence of drugs and/or alcohol, no test will be given and the employee will be returned to work without
    loss of pay, provided the medical doctor releases (in writing) the employee to return to work.

CHAIN OF CUSTODY PROCEDURES
GCC utilizes the services of qualified facilities for conducting all drug and alcohol testing. At the time a
specimen is collected, the employee shall be given a copy of the specimen collection procedures. The collection
and laboratory process will be consistent with guidelines established under the respective collective bargaining
agreements and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) standards.

POSITIVE RESULTS – PROCESSING GUIDELINES
All testing results are established in accordance with the guidelines determined by SAMHSA. The cut-off
levels (impairment levels) for both the screening and confirmatory tests shall be per Federal standards as
determined by the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services. Only tests that are positive, based on
SAMHSA standards, will be reported to the Medical Review Officer (MRO).

If the test result is positive for pre-placement/new hires:

1. A MRO will verify all positive test results.
2. A MRO shall interview the employee concerning the test results within five (5) days. The employee will
   be given an opportunity to explain and substantiate his/her use of legal drugs (prescription or over-the-
   counter) or other substances that may have resulted in a positive test result.
3. The MRO shall inform the employee of his/her right to have a second confirmatory test at a second
   D.H.H.S. approved laboratory. The employee shall have 72 hours within which to request the
   confirmatory test. If the second test is negative, the employee will be considered to have tested negative.
4. The MRO is responsible for reporting the final/positive results to the employer.
5. Employees who test positive will be referred for evaluation and treatment (through their respective
   Unions/Substance Abuse Programs).
6. GCC is not obligated to employ any such worker, even after being cleared through a qualified Substance
   Abuse Program.

If the test result is positive for existing employees:

1. A MRO will verify all positive test results.
2. A MRO shall interview the employee concerning the test results within five (5) days. The employee will
   be given an opportunity to explain and substantiate his/her use of legal drugs (prescription or over-the-
   counter) or other substances that may have resulted in a positive test result.
3. The MRO shall inform the employee of his/her right to have a second confirmatory test at a second
   D.H.H.S. approved laboratory. The employee shall have 72 hours within which to request the
   confirmatory test. If the second test is negative, the employee will be considered to have tested negative.
4. The MRO is responsible for reporting the final/positive results to the employer.
5. After the results have been confirmed as positive, the employee shall be referred to a counselor for
   evaluation and recommendation for treatment. Exception: GCC is not required to refer an employee for
   treatment that violates any provision that prohibits the sale of, attempted sale of, or manufacture of
   prohibited substances.
6. The manager or supervisor shall take appropriate actions based upon the evaluation and treatment
   recommendations.

    First Offense:

    1. Upon receipt of a confirmed positive test result, the employee will be provided a written formal
       referral and Information Release Authorization form for signature.
    2. To be reinstated to work, the employee must have a signed release from a qualified counselor or
       physician stating that they are fit for work and do not pose a safety hazard.
    3. Employees will be required to adhere to any conditions set forth in a Reinstatement /Return-to-Work
       Agreement and be subject to random drug testing, in accordance with collective bargaining
       agreements.
    4. The employee must have a current test performed with a negative result before being permitted on the
       job site.
    5. An employee may not be discharged from employment if he/she agrees in writing to undergo the
       counseling/treatment prescribed. GCC reserves the right to re-employ the worker upon release, if
       current work is available. GCC is not required to lay-off any current employee in order to create an
       open position.

    Second Offense:

    1. An employee who has previously tested positive and allowed to return to work can be discharged
       immediately for any subsequent positive drug screen, at the discretion of Ghilotti Construction
       Company management.


CONFIDENTIALITY

Every effort will be made to ensure that all employees substance abuse problems will be discussed in private
and actions taken will not be made known to anyone other than those directly involved in coordinating the
testing and obtaining the results, or who are required to be involved in the disciplinary procedures.

Only designated company individuals will receive testing results.         He/she will notify other Ghilotti
Construction Company managers strictly on a need-to-know basis.

No laboratory or medical reports or test results shall appear in an employee's personnel folder. All necessary
measures shall be taken to keep the results of the test confidential.

Because collective bargaining agreements can vary with respect to administration of a drug testing policy,
employees are encouraged to review their collective bargaining agreements to obtain information specific to
their Union.
