Construction companies face numerous challenges in maintaining safety and compliance on the job site. The handling of hazardous chemicals and materials can pose a significant risk, and proper management of Safety Data Sheets (SDS) is essential for ensuring the safety of workers and the environment.
Construction companies may use and come in contact with a variety of hazardous chemicals and materials that can cause harm, including:
Asbestos: a naturally occurring mineral that was commonly used in construction materials for insulation and fireproofing, but is now known to cause serious health problems such as lung cancer and mesothelioma.
Lead: used in paint and other construction materials, but can cause serious health problems, particularly in children, including damage to the nervous system, decreased IQ, and behavioral problems.
Solvents: used to clean and degrease surfaces, but can cause respiratory and skin irritation, as well as more serious health problems such as liver and kidney damage.
Adhesives and sealants: used to bond materials together, but can cause respiratory irritation and other health problems if inhaled.
Concrete and masonry products: contain cement, which can cause chemical burns and eye irritation.
Paint and coatings: contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can cause respiratory irritation and other health problems if inhaled.
Welding and cutting materials: can emit fumes that contain toxic metals such as lead, cadmium, and manganese, as well as fumes from burning plastics and other materials, which can cause respiratory irritation and other health problems.
