Construction laborers do a lot to keep their communities safe.
At hazardous-waste removal sites, construction laborers are specially trained to prepare the site and safely remove asbestos, lead, radioactive waste and other hazardous materials. They operate, read and maintain air monitoring and other sampling devices in confined and/or hazardous environments. They also safely sample, identify, handle, pack and transport hazardous or radioactive materials, and clean and decontaminate equipment, buildings and enclosed structures.

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber that can cause lung and other respiratory/gastronomic diseases when inhaled or ingested. Because of its insulating and fireproofing properties, it was used extensively in the construction industry before the negative health effects were commonly known.
Because so much asbestos was used in common building products, its removal is a major work area in the Environmental Remediation industry, and many laborers have been and still are employed in this industry.
Due to the health hazards, workers must be trained, tested and certified before working in this industry.Learn More

Lead abatement is an activity to reduce levels of lead, generally to permanently eliminate lead-based paint hazards, in order to reduce or eliminate incidents of lead poisoning.
Lead abatement may be undertaken in response to orders by state or local government. It requires specialized techniques that local construction contractors typically do not have. It includes activities such as lead-based paint inspections, risk assessments and lead-based paint removal.Learn More
