Plans and Logistics for a NYC DOB Site Safety Plan

Every day counts when builders want to get their buildings occupied. NYC is highly populated, with high-rise buildings, and there is close proximity between other buildings and the public to operations with heavy equipment and materials. This means construction poses more of a safety risk to the public and workers. Having a site safety plan in place can help to mitigate safety risks during construction.

Total Safety Consulting is a New York safety consultant company that works with builders from the minute they win a bid until the last screw is turned. We provide the plans and logistics for a master site safety plan that integrates seamlessly with the construction plan and ensures the job goes more smoothly. Our proven process gets them the permits they need and keeps the workers and the public safer. Here’s how we keep New York building.

Before our clients can break ground, a Site Safety Plan must be approved to get the required permits.  TSC provides clients Site Safety Logistics Plans and Phased Site Safety Plans. We work closely with our clients to assess and gather all the information needed to prepare highly-detailed plans that meet requirements indicated in Chapter 33 of the NYC Building Code, including:

  • Location of construction fences, sidewalk sheds, temporary walkways, guardrails around excavations, etc.
  • Location of surrounding buildings, loading areas, and standpipe system and Siamese hose connections
  • All required safety netting and scaffolding
  • All means of egress
  • Indicators for proper signage, fire extinguishers, first aid kits, and disposal methods
  • Consulting building codes, government regulations and other emergency response agencies to ensure the job site is compliant with health, safety and environmental regulations
