Posted September 19, 2018 07:55:16 A new report by the Government Accountability Office found that the U.S. is now home to more than 500,000 contractors and workers that use hazardous waste and other hazardous materials to build homes, businesses and infrastructure.
The GAO’s report, entitled “War on Wastes: Wastes, Wastewater and the Future of Construction,” found that as of January 2018, there were more than 539,000 workers on federal contractors and contractors that use toxic materials.
This is up from 635,000 in 2017, and represents a jump of 5.7 percent since 2010.
The report found that workers are also using hazardous materials in the homes of contractors and home improvement contractors, and contractors are using hazardous waste in their construction sites.
While the number of workers that are on federal contracts that use the materials has remained flat over the past several years, the GAO found that federal contractors are still required to notify local governments of workers using hazardous chemicals.
The GAO also found that contractors are required to report any workers that have died from exposure to toxic waste.
According to the GAS report, the use of toxic materials by contractors is growing, with the number and rate of workers contracting toxic chemicals increasing significantly.
“In 2017, the average worker contracted toxic chemicals was approximately six times the average of workers in 2016,” according to the report.
In 2017 alone, 6.6 percent of all workers contracted toxic substances.
This means that the use and consumption of toxic waste has grown by more than 50 percent over the last three years.
“This growing trend is alarming, as toxic waste is one of the leading sources of hazardous waste,” the report stated.
“While it may appear that the United States is in the middle of the UAW-HHS-CRA crisis, we’re in the midst of a war against toxic waste.”
The GAS found that more than half of the workers on the federal contractors list were in the private sector.
This includes more than 80 percent of the contractors that are currently in business.
“It is important to note that this report does not address the health and safety risks associated with these hazardous waste workers.
There is a strong public health and environmental imperative for these workers to be exposed to and to have safe workplace practices,” the GAOS report stated in its conclusion.
In the past, the government has sought to limit the amount of hazardous materials that contractors use.
The U.A.E. in the 1970s and 1980s passed legislation requiring contractors to have hazardous waste incineration facilities and required contractors to conduct annual reports on their use of hazardous material.
The report states that since 2010, the federal government has passed several new regulations that have required contractors that contract with hazardous waste to submit annual reports to the UHRS detailing their use.
The U.HRS has also worked to restrict the amount and types of hazardous and toxic waste that is used on the job.
The EPA also issued a regulation requiring contractors that hire contractors to use an approved incinerator that is certified to use a hazardous waste standard.
In 2018, the UHS also issued regulations that require contractors to obtain permits from local and state governments for all hazardous waste projects, and to submit to the EPA annual reports detailing the types of waste they use, the locations of hazardous sites, and the number, types, and quantity of hazardous wastes they are using.
The federal government also passed new regulations to require contractors and subcontractors to notify the local and State governments of any workers who have died in connection with exposure to hazardous waste.
