Health & Safety

Construction activities associated with the abatement/demolition of the structures selected as part of the second phase of the demolition activities  shall be performed by qualified contractors who are appropriately trained and supervised, and carried out in accordance with applicable regulations. Contractors are required to have employee training and medical monitoring programs in accordance with established health and safety plans. 

Measures implemented during construction activities to protect the health and safety of the community includes: 

  • Community Air Monitoring Program (CAMP): The CAMP is intended to prevent any adverse health effects in the communities surrounding the site and monitors air quality at work sites during demolition activities. As part of CAMP, air monitoring stations will be established upwind and downwind of the construction areas for the purpose of monitoring air quality resulting from abatement and demolition activities.  If any measurements indicate an air quality action level has been or could be exceeded, then remedial activities will be undertaken to mitigate any potential exceedance.
  • Contractor Health and Safety Plan (HASP): The HASP is intended to safeguard the health and safety of the contractor’s workers during performance of the abatement and demolition activities.
  • Traffic Control Plan (TCP): The TCP is intended to establish routes and times of transport for the contractor’s vehicles to limit disturbance to the neighboring community and ensure routes of transportation do not pass through sensitive areas such as school zones. Based on the Remedial Contractor’s approved plan, construction traffic from the project site will be directed as follows: south on Kings Park Boulevard towards Route 25A; west on Route 25A to Indian Head Road; south on Indian Head Road to Route 25; subsequently construction traffic will proceed to their intended destination.
