Abstract
The construction sector is a massive industry that contributes significantly to the national economy and can be considered the base of all other sectors. However, the detrimental effects of construction site activity and pollution are a major problem for nations, including India. Construction pollution raises the death rate and the number of patients with various serious illnesses in these countries. It reduces the life span of human beings various forms of pollution, including those from landfills, the air, water, and noise, arise during construction. Everyday exposure to air, water, and noise pollution has an influence on humans as well as the environment and ecosystem. PM10, PM2.5, SOx, NOx, and volatile organic compounds are among the air pollutants whose intensity has reached a high level. Dust pollution may be caused by a variety of sources, including the usage of various construction equipment on the job site, transportation, and various construction operations. Correctly identifying these variables can aid in the implementation of control measures that can lessen the amount of dust pollution at the location. The author of this paper examines the various researchers' works that illustrate the influence of construction pollution. There is inadequate monitoring and verification of site activities in nations where the effect level is high. Countries minimize the majority of patients with these types of diseases if all precautions are taken on site and appropriate maintenance is carried out there.
