Abstract

Research findings confirm the existence of hazardous and toxic substances in most building materials. There is limited studies and information on building materials and the effects to health and safety. This study develops an evaluation method that is used to identify the presence of hazardous substances from building materials and assess their public health impact. The information allows stakeholders to identify potential risks and could improve knowledge sharing on building materials information on health and safety in the built environment industry.

Keywords: Building materials information; construction health and safety practices; hazardous substances; knowledge sharing.
