The construction site is an industrial operation guided by OSHA safety and health recommendations; whereas the interior office environment is a non-industrial environment guided by levels of acceptability that are at least 1/10 of the acceptable OSHA levels. When the two areas co-exist during renovation, risk to office occupants, who are not self-selected to tolerate regular exposure to these construction stressors and contaminants, increases. Many materials that are commonly used by the construction industry are established, probable or suspected carcinogens.
