Abstract
A safety information profile for the building construction industry, including the use of insulation materials, (SIC-1799) is presented. Major areas of construction within each SIC code are described. Potential safety, chemical, and physical hazards are reviewed, and existing controls are discussed. Available accident and illness statistics are presented. Industry growth trends are described. Current federal, industrial, and national consensus standards are described. Names and addresses of industries, associations, unions, and other interested parties are provided. It is concluded that this industry has a historically high rate of injury and illness, and further study is needed to determine causes and prevention. Engineering controls are considered to be the most effective prevention methods. Also recommended is the use of personal protective clothing and equipment.
