Health & Safety Protocol Meeting
Before any SCA construction project begins in an occupied school, the project support manager schedules a health and safety protocol meeting with the building representatives. School participants include the principal, network leader, United Federation of Teachers (UFT) chapter representative, parent representative and custodian. Also present are the SCA project officer, industrial environmental hygiene representative, architect, safety officer and contractor.
At the meeting, the scope of work is discussed and the attached check list is reviewed and completed. Participants have an opportunity to ask questions and express any concerns they have about the project.
Throughout the course of construction, regular job meetings are held every two weeks, the school representatives are welcome to discuss schools issues at the beginning of each job meeting.
Project Committee Bi-Weekly Meeting
Committee Meetings are held throughout the duration of the construction on projects in occupied school buildings. These meetings are attended by the school principal, custodian, UFT chapter leader, parent representative, the general contractor, architect, subcontractors and are chaired by the SCA project officer. The meetings provide opportunities for school related issues and concerns to be discussed and construction progress reports are provided to the participants.
