What types of toxic exposure can happen on a construction site?

Whenever a poisonous substance is used or released on a construction site, there is a danger that construction workers could be exposed to it to such a degree that it causes illness or injury.

Some of the toxic substances that are commonly found on construction sites include:

  • Asbestos
  • Formaldehyde
  • Di-isocyanates
  • Flame retardants
  • Silica
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Lead
  • Paint
  • Mold
  • Other chemicals

Toxic exposure can happen by:

  • Touching the toxic substance
  • Breathing in toxic dust or gases
  • Direct contact of the toxin with the skin or eyes
  • Ingesting the toxic substance
  • Prolonged exposure to small amounts of toxic substances

If I was exposed to toxins on a New York construction site, who is responsible?

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has strict regulations for safe working conditions, expecially concerning hazardous chemicals. OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires employers to classify, label, and train workers to handle hazardous chemicals.

In many cases of toxic exposure, the standards established by OSHA for worker safety were not followed by a contractor, supervisor, property owner or other party responsible for worker safety.
