               FEDERAL ON-THE-JOB TRAINING SPECIAL PROVISIONS


This On-the-Job Training (OJT) special provision supersedes subparagraph 7e of the
"On-Site Workforce Affirmative Action Requirements for Women and Minorities on
Federal-Aid Contracts" and is in implementation of 23 U.S.C. 140(a). All other provisions
apply.

Section 1: On-the-Job Training Policy Statement

The Contractor shall take all necessary and reasonable steps to ensure that minorities and
women have the opportunity to compete for and participate as trainees or apprentices and
to develop as journey-level workers in the type of trade or job classification employed.
Contractors may use either a Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) apprenticeship or
training program, or develop their own on-the-job training program approved by Oregon
Department of Transportation (ODOT) and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to
satisfy this OJT requirement.

Section 2: Affirmative Action Requirement

Training and upgrading minorities and women in highway construction trades is the primary
goal of these special provisions. This shall be accomplished by making systematic and
direct recruitment efforts through public and private sources that are likely to yield minorities
and women available for training on the work under this contract.

When filling these training positions, Contractors and subcontractors are encouraged to hire
women and minorities who have previously been approved to participate in the On-the-Job
Training Program and have not yet completed their training, or who are currently registered
in a BOLI-approved apprenticeship or training program.

Whenever minorities or women are not placed in training positions specified in these
special provisions, the Contractor shall provide documented evidence of its affirmative
action recruitment efforts. ODOT will review the Contractor’s recruitment efforts to
determine whether the Contractor has satisfied the Good Faith criteria specified in the
"On Site Workforce Affirmative Action Requirements for Women and Minorities on
Federal-Aid Contracts".

Neither the provisions of any collective bargaining agreement, nor the failure by a union
with whom the Contractor has a collective bargaining agreement, nor any agreement the
Contractor has with a joint apprenticeship and training committee, shall excuse the
Contractor’s obligations under these special provisions.

This training commitment is not intended, and shall not be used, to discriminate against any
applicant for training, whether members of a minority group or not.

Whenever trainees or apprentices are terminated, the Contractor shall provide documented
evidence to the Project Manager that shows cause for the termination or voluntary
separation.




OJT                                                                                            1
US101: Columbia River (Astoria - Megler) Bridge #07949A Section
Bridge Painting

Section 3: Assigned On-the-Job Training Positions

The number of on-the-job training positions required under these special provisions is one.
The ratio of apprentices to journey level workers shall be in accordance with the accepted
standards for the particular craft or occupation. For OJT programs developed by the
Contractor, the ratio of trainees to journey level workers shall be spelled out in the training
program and are subject to approval by ODOT and FHWA.

Whenever a portion of the contract work is subcontracted, the Contractor shall determine
how many, if any, of the trainees or apprentices are to be trained by the subcontractor. The
Contractor, however, shall retain the responsibility for meeting the training requirements of
these special provisions and shall also ensure that these provisions apply to each
subcontract to which training positions are assigned.

A Contractor’s request to substitute an on-the-job training position from one craft to another
craft must be approved by ODOT’s Office of Civil Rights.

Section 4: Training Requirements

The intent of these provisions is to provide real and meaningful training in the construction
crafts rather than clerical or secretarial positions. Training in classifications such as flagger,
bookkeeper, clerk/typist or secretary is not permissible. Training is permissible in lower
level management positions such as office engineers, estimators, etc., where the training is
oriented toward construction applications and is approved by the Federal Highway
Administration. Off-site training is permissible only when it is an integral part of an
approved training program, meets the criteria under Section 8, paragraph 4 of these special
provisions, and does not comprise a significant part of the overall training.

The Contractor must have and maintain at all times sufficient equipment and fully trained
journey level workers to train apprentices or trainees in the work processes and comply with
these special provisions. A valid certification by an appropriate apprenticeship committee
that the Contractor is an approved training agent shall be prima facie proof of compliance
with this requirement.

Section 5: Training/Apprenticeship Programs

Training under these provisions shall be conducted in accordance with a training program
submitted by the Contractor and approved by ODOT's Office of Civil Rights and the Federal
Highway Administration (FHWA). OJT programs for which the Contractor has obtained
approval of BOLI’s Oregon State Apprenticeship and Training Council shall be accepted
under these provisions.

Training Programs (ODOT Form 731-0335) shall be submitted at the pre-construction
conference. ODOT will track training activities provided by the Contractor to trainees
working under an approved training program. The Contractor shall provide ODOT with
monthly progress reports for all trainees working under an approved training program.

Trainees shall be paid at least 60% of the appropriate minimum journey level rate specified
in the contract for the first half of the training period, 75% for the third quarter of the training
period, and 90% for the last quarter of the training period. If apprentices are enrolled in
BOLI-registered program, the appropriate rates approved by the Department of Labor or in



OJT                                                                                               2
US101: Columbia River (Astoria - Megler) Bridge #07949A Section
Bridge Painting

connection with the apprenticeship program shall apply to all trainees being trained for the
same classification who are covered by this special provision.

Each individual Training Program must be approved by ODOT’s Office of Civil Rights prior
to commencing work in the craft in which the trainee will be trained. The Contractor or
subcontractor who is training an individual not enrolled in an apprenticeship program must
be able to certify in some manner that the trainee has completed an on-the-job training
program. This certification will be provided to the trainee and a copy to ODOT’s Office of
Civil Rights upon completion of the training program.

Section 6: Reports

The Contractor and each subcontractor training under these provisions shall complete and
submit to the appropriate ODOT Project Manager the following reports:

         Upon attending pre-construction conference, the Training Program (Form 731-0335)
          completed and signed by the Contractor stating the types of training to be provided
          on the contract.

         Prior to beginning work, an Apprentice/Trainee Approval Request (Form 731-0294)
          completed and signed by the Contractor stating who will be trained, the estimated
          date the training is to begin on the project, and the estimated number of hours of
          training for each person to be trained.

         By the 10th of each month, an Apprentice/Trainee Monthly Progress Record (Form
          731-0332) for each person participating in the On-the-Job Training Program,
          completed and signed by the trainee. The Monthly Progress Record that a
          Contractor or subcontractor routinely sends to an apprenticeship program may be
          used in lieu of the ODOT Apprentice/Trainee Monthly Progress Record.

         By the 10th of each month, an Employment Utilization Report (Form 731-0394).
          This report reflects work hours by craft, race and gender. This report is required of
          all Contractors and subcontractors on contracts valued $10,000 and above,
          regardless of their participation in the OJT Program.

         Upon completion of the contract, document to trainee and ODOT the amount and
          type of training completed.

All required forms will be sent to the Contractor and ODOT Project Manager by the Office of
Civil Rights at the time of contract award. Additional forms may be obtained from the Office
of Civil Rights by calling (503) 986-4350.

Section 7: Monitoring and Compliance

ODOT will monitor the Contractor’s actions for compliance with these special provisions.
Actions, which will be monitored, include:

         Employment of trainees as required for this contract.
         Demonstration of Good Faith Efforts when contractually required training provisions
          are not filled with affirmative action candidates.



OJT                                                                                          3
US101: Columbia River (Astoria - Megler) Bridge #07949A Section
Bridge Painting

         Maintenance of the records and submission of the reports required by these
          provisions.

If the Contractor does not comply with these special provisions, ODOT may withhold
progress payments until compliance with the above is achieved, or impose other lawful
remedies, including holding the Contractor in breach. Two breaches of contract exposes
the Contractor to revocation of ODOT’s prequalification status and/or disqualification from
all State of Oregon public contracting opportunities.

If subcontractors participate in the OJT Program, the Contractor will be responsible for the
subcontractor’s compliance with the requirements of these special provisions in accordance
with Section 00180.10 of the Supplemental Specifications.

Section 8: Measurement and Payment

The pay quantity for On-the-Job Training will be measured by the actual number of hours of
training provided, measured to the nearest one-half hour.

Except as otherwise noted below, the Contractor will be paid training provided to an
employee approved by ODOT and trained in accordance with an approved training
program. The Contractor must obtain approval from ODOT to overrun OJT bid item hours
beyond the quantity shown in the bid schedule in order to be eligible for reimbursement.
Payment may be made for training persons in excess of the number specified in Section 3,
provided the following has been approved by ODOT prior to the date that excess training
commences.

         The number, names, gender and race of additional trainees.
         The craft(s) in which training is to be provided.
         A training program for each trainee.
         If not minority or female, documentation of good faith efforts to recruit minorities and
          women in proposed positions.

Payment for training under these provisions will be made even though the Contractor
receives additional training program funds from other sources, provided such other sources
do not specifically prohibit the Contractor from receiving other reimbursement.
Reimbursement for off-site training will only be made where the Contractor does one or
more of the following and the trainees/apprentices are concurrently employed in a Federal-
aid project:

         Contributes to the cost of the training.
         Provides the instruction to the trainee/apprentice.
         Pays the trainee’s/apprentice’s wage during the off-site training period.

Payments made to the Contractor may be recalled if either the failure to provide the
required training, or the failure to hire the trainee/apprentice upon completion of the
contractor’s OJT program is caused by the Contractor’s lack of Good Faith Efforts in
meeting the requirements of the special provisions. Such lack of Good Faith Efforts shall
constitute non-compliance and may lead to Breach of Contract.




OJT                                                                                             4

The item "On-the-Job Training" will be paid in full for training provided and properly
documented, in conformance with these provisions.

No payment for training will be made until the Contractor has submitted all required
documentation and approved by ODOT.

The item "On-the-Job Training" is intended to cover the Contractor’s additional costs
associated with administering the On-the-Job Training provisions of this contract. The On-
the-Job Training bid item is not intended to reimburse the Contractor for actual costs nor for
the hourly wage or fringe benefits of the trainee.

Comply with all applicable laws of the State of Washington with respect to that portion of
the work to be done and materials to be furnished in the State of Washington and the laws
of the State of Oregon with respect to that portion of the work to be done and materials to
be furnished within the State of Oregon.

Familiarize yourself with the laws of both States, including those concerning public
contracts, permits and licenses, laborers and materials, workmen’s compensation
insurance and taxes, including both income and sales taxes.

determined to be 0.42 miles from the Washington end of the bridge.

00170.02 Permits, Licenses, and Taxes - Add the following:

A contract for road and bridge construction on Washington state-owned land is defined by
Washington law as a “retail sale”. As such, the Contractor is required to collect retail sales
tax from the State of Oregon on the full contract amount for that portion of the contract
within the State of Washington.

Payment to the Contractor by the State of Oregon of retail sales tax to be collected by the
Contractor under Washington law will be additional to the amount Bid by the Contractor for
that portion of the completed project within the State of Washington.

The State of Oregon will verify the contract amount for the work performed in the State of
Washington as submitted by the Contractor and will reimburse the Contractor for the
amount of actual retail sales tax paid within 30 days upon receipt of evidence of such
payment.

Washington law requires that before paying the retained percentage to any person
performing any public works contract, State officers shall require such persons to secure
from the Washington State Department of Revenue, a certificate that all taxes due with
respect to such contract have been paid in full. The Contractor, therefore, is required to
secure, then present to the State of Oregon such certificate before payment of the retained
percentage will be made.

              and waste, or water contained within a work area isolation, directly into any
              waters of the State or U.S. until it has been satisfactorily treated (for example:
              bioswale, filter, settlement pond, pumping to vegetated upland location, bio-
              bags, dirt-bags). Treatment shall meet the turbidity requirements below.
             Do not cause turbidity in waters of the State or U.S. greater than 10% above
              background reading (up to 100 feet upstream of the Project), as measured
              100 feet downstream of the Project.
             During construction, monitor in-stream turbidity and inspect all erosion controls
              daily during the rainy season and weekly during the dry season, or more often
              as necessary, to ensure the erosion controls are working adequately meeting
              treatment requirements.
             If construction discharge water is released using an outfall or diffuser port, do
              not exceed velocities more than 4 feet per second, and do not exceed an
              aperture size of 1 inch.
             If monitoring or inspection shows that the erosion and sediment controls are
              ineffective, mobilize work crews immediately to make repairs, install
              replacements, or install additional controls as necessary.
             Underwater blasting is not allowed.
             Implement containment measures adequate to prevent pollutants or construction
              and demolition materials, such as waste spoils, fuel or petroleum products,
              concrete cured less than 24 hours, concrete cure water, silt, welding slag and
              grindings, concrete saw cutting by-products and sandblasting abrasives, from
              entering waters of the state or U.S.

         and in locations so as not to contribute untreated wastewater to any flowing stream.

        Maintain hazardous material containment kits and spill containment kits on-site to
         facilitate the cleanup of hazardous materials spills for both dry-land spills and spills
         that could reach nearby waterways. Install hazardous material containment kits in
         instances where there is a potential for release of petroleum or other toxicants.

        Secure absorbent material around all stationary power equipment (for example:
         generators, cranes, drilling equipment) operated within 150 feet of wetlands, waters
         of the State and U. S., drainage ditches, or water quality facilities to prevent leaks,
         unless suitable containment is provided to prevent spills from entering waters of the
         state and U.S.

        The volume of material filled or discharged into waters of the state or U.S. plus the
         volume excavated shall not exceed 50 cubic yards.

(2) Water Intake Screening - Install, operate, and maintain fish screens on each water
intake used for project construction, including pumps used to isolate an in-water work area.

               SECTION 00294 - REMOVAL AND DISPOSAL OF PAINT WASTE


Section 00294, which is not in the Standard Specification, is included in this project by
special provision as follows:

00294.00 Scope - Wherever paint removal is required for other construction purposes, that
paint shall be treated as lead-based paint (LBP) and/or zinc chromate paint (ZCP) as set
forth below.

00294.01 Responsibilities - Contain all paint grindings or debris and store and dispose of
paint grindings or waste in compliance with all applicable rules and procedures set forth by
ODEQ, OHD, Or-OSHA and the EPA.

Prior to lead paint removal, perform an employee-exposure assessment and provide
documentation, exposure monitoring, employee training, medical surveillance, signage,
respiratory protection and personal protective equipment, in accordance with 29 CFR 1910,
1926 and 1926.62; OAR 437 Division 3 Subdivision D; and all other applicable State and
Federal regulations.

Set up containment that prevents the release of paint grindings or debris to the environment
as described in Section 00290.42 Work Containment Plan and System.

Test the final paint waste for lead, chromium, cadmium, copper, zinc and any contaminants of
concern contained in the blasting grit, using the toxicity Characteristic leaching procedure



SPS14835 US101: Columbia River (Astoria - Megler) Bridge #07949A Section Final 2-23-09   20

(TCLP) at a laboratory accredited under the Oregon Environmental Laboratory Accreditation
Program (ORELAP) or National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (NELAP).
Use the analytical results and knowledge of process to prepare a hazardous waste
determination according to 40 CFR 261 and OAR 340-101-033. Provide the results to the
Engineer prior to removal of paint waste from the Project.

Store all paint grindings, paint chip debris, and any other potentially hazardous waste as
hazardous waste until analytical results demonstrate it is non-hazardous. Ensure
hazardous waste containers are clearly and visibly labeled with the contents and
accumulation start date, compatible with the contents and in good condition. Store them in
a designated weather-protected area that is secured from public access, has secondary
containment adequate to contain a release, and has sufficient aisle space to safely
maneuver containers and respond to spills (minimum 30 inches). Even if the amount of
hazardous waste generated meets the Conditionally Exempt Generator (CEG) classification
per 40 CFR 261.5, comply with the small quantity generator (SQG) requirements for storage
and contingency planning. Such compliance includes limiting storage to 180 days or less
and to 2,200 pounds or less, as well as posting a written modified contingency plan with
emergency response procedures and contact information

If hazardous waste will be treated on-site, obtain approval from DEQ and the Engineer for
each specific treatment or recycling process, treat wastes within accumulation tanks or
closed containers that meet RCRA requirements, conduct treatment within the storage time
for the applicable generator category, maintain current copies of all required notifications
and waste analysis plans readily available on site and request DEQ technical assistance
prior to starting any on site recycling or treatment. Note that treating paint grindings with a
binding agent after removal from the structure constitutes on-site treatment. However,
using grit that contains a binding agent during the removal process or applying a binding
agent to the paint prior to removal does not constitute on-site treatment of a hazardous
waste.

Immediately notify the Engineer if the amount of hazardous waste generated (paint waste
plus all other forms of hazardous waste generated on site) exceeds the CEG classification
per 40 CFR 261.5. If the quantity of hazardous waste generated in a month changes the
generator category, immediately implement the requirements for the new category and
comply with them for the rest of the year. Complete the new documentation and training
requirements within 30 days.

If the amount of hazardous waste generated or stored on the project exceeds the CEG
requirements, or otherwise requires one, obtain a hazardous waste identification number
from DEQ listing the Contractor as the generator using the following information on the
application form:

        List Contractor as Site Contact, Site Operator, Hazardous Waste Form Contact and
         Hazardous Waste Fee Contact;
        List ODOT as Site Location, Land Owner and Legal Owner;
        Put the following statement in the comments section: [Contractor Name] is
         responsible for: all hazardous waste management on site for the duration of this
         construction project, for delivery of the waste to a permitted recycling or disposal
         facility, for all forms and fees associated with the hazardous waste management
         including cancellation of the ID# at the end of the project. ODOT is the owner of the
         waste and maintains long-term responsibility for the waste as required by RCRA,

         excluding any wastes generated solely from materials brought to the site by the
         Contractor, which remain the property of the Contractor.

Complete and sign all required manifests and bill-of-lading forms for proper transportation
and disposal of lead based paint materials. Contractor may sign hazardous waste manifests
for the off-site shipment of hazardous wastes as the "offeror" rather than as the "generator".
Ensure that all regulatory requirements for transporting are complied with.

Maintain all required waste management records, including monthly hazardous waste
generation records, manifests, recycling and disposal receipts, test results, and annual
DEQ reports. Submit monthly records to the Engineer by the 15th day of the following
month and submit DEQ reports to the Engineer concurrently with DEQ. Keep copies for at
least 3 years following completion of the project and resolution of any regulatory violations
or citations

Wastewater - In addition to the requirements of 00290.20, pump, test, treat, and dispose of
contaminated wastewater as follows:

        Wastewater will be discharged into a sewerage treatment facility with industrial
         pretreatment capabilities, obtain permission from DEQ and the system owner.
         Provide the Agency with written documentation from DEQ and the owner indicating
         that the owner has been provided with analytical test results for the wastewater,
         understands the wastewater is contaminated, and approves the discharge to its
         sewerage treatment facility.

        Wastewater will be pretreated before discharging into a sewerage treatment facility.
         Pretreated water must meet the wastewater discharge requirements of the facility
         owner.

        Perform daily monitoring of wastewater discharge using an electrical conductance
         meter or an equivalent method to demonstrate that the pretreatment is meeting the
         wastewater discharge requirements of the sewerage treatment facility. Report the
         results of monitoring to the Agency as soon as available.

        Unless otherwise allowed, do not store contaminated wastewater on site. If allowed,
         temporarily store contaminated wastewater in water tight containers, such as
         polyethylene or steel tanks. Clearly label each container with the contents and
         dates of accumulation. Dispose of stored contaminated wastewater within 30 days
