Very probably.

But very time consuming for you to expose the problem of an unacceptable work environment and seek remediation.

You can study up on "Osha" (Federal Occupational Safety etc.) and make a report to that agency on line. Your request to the agency should be short and sweet and you may just want to ask OSHA to call or send a letter to your employer asking your employer to explain the problem and what he or she is doing to correct it.
