These potentially unsafe substances include:

There are a variety of laws and regulations in place at both the state and federal levels to protect construction workers from toxic exposure. Employers who fail to adhere to these laws can be liable for injuries caused in a construction accident should an employee choose to file a personal injury lawsuit.
