               .4      Specific Instructions - OSHA requires that employees performing specific

                       tasks or operating specific equipment be trained in its usage.

3.0.2         Routine and regular training is one of the most beneficial and effective methods of
              improving safety on a site. The need for routine safety training is emphasized by two
              very important factors. First, the construction industry has an overall injury rate of
              11.8 per 100 employees versus the national average of 7.5 per 100' employees.
              Second, the construction industry has a transient work force. Training will help
              reduce the accident rate, but it must be continuous to reach all personnel.
3.0.3         Training of Trade Contractor personnel is the responsibility of the Trade Contractor.
              However, where a unique hazard potential exists or where the Trade Contractor is
              not capable of providing adequate training, Gilbane Building Company and/or its
              agent may elect to assist the Trade Contractor in training without assuming any of the
              Trade Contractor's contractual obligations, responsibilities or liabilities. As with
              orientation, Trade Contractor's training programs may be monitored by Gilbane
              Building Company, Rhode Island Airport Corporation and/or its agent(s).
              When evaluating or creating a safety training program, the following points should
              be reviewed:

               .1      The training shall be directed at all levels of a Trade Contractor's
                       organization, including management, supervision, and employees.

               .2      Accident records and reports shall be reviewed to determine where problem
                       areas exist. The training should be directed to those areas.

               .3      The training will be more effective if presented by Trade Contractor personnel
                       experienced in the subject matter. Also, the trainer's commitment to safety
                       will be enhanced by having a direct involvement in teaching fellow workers.

               .4      The training program shall consider specific instruction to employees changing
                       craft assignments and/or new work environments.

               .5      As with orientation, audiovisual aids can benefit the training effort. For
                       sources of audiovisual training aids, refer to OSHA 2019 publication, contract

                        .2      "UNSAFE - DO NOT USE": This tag does not require an attachment
                               to a padlock, but may be used if needed. This tag shall be used to
                               identify tools, equipment, vehicles, etc.


              .l        If device, valve, switch, or piece of equipment is locked out, a "Danger Tag"
                        shall be attached.

              .2        No device, valve, switch or piece of equipment shall be operated with a
                        "Danger Tag" and/or lockout attached regardless of circumstances.

              .3        Systems consisting of electrical components will be checked, locked and
                        tagged first by electrical craft employee working on the circuit. The electrical
                        craft will be the first lock on, and the last lock off.

              .4        Where placing of lock is not feasible, the circuit conductor will be
                        disconnected from the breaker and tagged out.

                        and shall be equipped with a hasp in order to secure a lock to prevent the
                        panel door from being opened.

              .6        If panel cover is of a type that cannot be locked closed, a cover shall be
                        secured over the panel cover and be locked closed and tagged while any work
                        is being performed on any of those circuits.

               .7       If the above .l through .6 cannot be accomplished, each circuit will be tagged
                        out as prescribed and a electrical department employee will stand by the panel
                        board to prevent breakers from being tampered with. This physical presence
                        will continue daily until the work is complete.

               .8       All "Danger Tags" must be dated, signed and employee's identification
                        number shown. Also on tag, must be the intended work and equipment for
                        which tag has been placed.

                        .I      If employees of more than one craft or crew are to work on a system,
                                circuit, machinery, or component, the supervisor from that craft shall
                                place his individual lock and tag; and verify that the system, circuit,
                                machinery or component being tagged, is indeed the system that is to
                                be worked on.
