||This article examines the antifertility effects of chemical substances commonly used in the construction industry. Substances with suspected spermicidal effects include some glycol ethers (banned in France since 1997), phthalates used as PVC plasticizers, styrene and some solvents. It is recommended that the exposure to these substances be limited, in particular through the use of personal protective equipment.
