Virtually all construction work involves the use of some sort of toxic substance. For example, bonding and waterproofing chemicals are used for road construction, paints and related chemicals are used in the construction of buildings, and oil and gas are readily accessible on most construction sites. Workers who are exposed to these chemicals on a regular basis can experience serious illnesses and injuries as a result.

Common Toxins on Construction Sites
Construction companies are required to take certain safety precautions to help ensure that workers and those nearby are safe from these dangerous substances. Toxic chemicals must be properly stored, employees must be thoroughly trained, and all safety protocols must be followed.
The most common toxic substances associated with construction work include:
- Petroleum products
- Solid wastes
- Other chemicals, such as acids and solvents
