Hazardous substances in Forest Service buildings can be a health risk to employees and customers. Building materials may contain hazards such as asbestos and lead-based paint. Building configuration and local geology may combine to create a buildup of radon gas in a building. Common building components such as fluorescent light bulbs, mercury thermostats, lighting ballasts, and exit signs may contain chemicals dangerous to human health and the environment. This section of the Toolbox will help you deal with hazardous materials in your buildings.
