In addition to erecting infrastructure, the construction industry is responsible for carrying out many operations ranging from land clearing and demolition to carpentry and floor work. Construction sites and equipment yards are targets for inspection by local, state, and federal governing agencies making your facility or job site’s to be held to a higher levels of scrutiny. CF-S’s highly experienced team is here to help you face these difficulties with certainty and 100% compliance.

Dangerous Construction Elements

In the construction industry, you have to carry out daily operations with hazardous materials and chemicals that could negatively impact public health and the environment—especially if those chemicals were to spill and/or enter surrounding waterways via stormwater runoff. Some of the most common elements used in the construction industry are:

  • Zinc – Used during the manufacture of galvanized metals and brass
  • Mercury – Utilized to coat metals
  • Iron oxide – Compound used for steel manufacture
  • Beryllium – Used alongside base metals as an alloying element
  • Cadmium – Used to coat steel as a rust preventative
  • Lead – Commonly used in painting, electrical and roofing projects

In addition to these dangerous elements, construction sites are also full of plastics, sediment, fabrics and gravel that can accumulate in runoff, which poses an environmental threat and brings along the risk of incurring compliance fines. This being the case, it’s vital to protect your construction site with SPCC solutions that contain spills and potentially dangerous runoff in order to stay legal. That’s where the proficient team at Containment & Filtration Solutions can be of assistance.
