    To prevent health hazards at work, all possible health hazards that may be encountered should be identified before commencement of construction work. The health hazards at a construction site may come from the hazardous substances used or those already present on site. The environmental conditions may also create additional health hazards. These factors should also be identified, for example, heat and noise. The information for hazard identification can be obtained from the equipment and material supplier, site owner and principal contractor. If such information is not available, then a contractor should take actions to identify unknown substances or seek assistance from a specialist if necessary
