Services

Construction Safety

Support

Lodestar can support clients with development and implementation of corporate safety programs or specific elements of safety programs.  We develop or modify project-specific Health and Safety Plans (HASPs), in conjunction with our clients’ operations and management staff. 

Lodestar provides on-scene safety coordinators to meet client needs on short or long term projects.  Our safety personnel conduct Job Hazard Analyses, prepare written safety plans, perform daily tailboard meetings, conduct job-site inspections, provide specific personnel training programs and provide many other project management support tasks.  We have developed a database program that logs daily job site safety inspections, tracks coaching opportunities and incidents, if any, and can sort project findings by category (PPE use, job briefings, job site set-up, etc.), by contractor or other key parameters.

  • Photo-documentation

  • Daily Logs

  • Laboratory Monitoring Data

  • Inspection Forms

  • Training programs and Sign-in Sheets

  • QA test data (i.e. flowable fill, concrete test results)

Environmental Planning

Lodestar’s strong environmental consulting roots allow us to provide valuable contributions to the project team from the earliest planning stages. We have been leaders in property acquisition due diligence for over 25 years.  We use this expertise to identify potential pre-existing contamination, wetlands and endangered species issues early in the project siting/route selection process.  This optimizes project preparation and minimizes potential surprises. 

Where applicable, our soil and ground water investigation and classification services allow materials management planning (i.e. excavated soil handling, staging and disposal, dewatering liquids management and discharge permitting) that saves unforeseen expenses and prevents scheduling delays.  Lodestar also expedites wetlands permitting and mitigation planning, air permitting, storm water permitting and management planning, spill prevention and response planning.
