The Occupational Safety and Health Administration says the exposure occurred during the summertime renovation of the Chute Middle School cafeteria in Evanston. OSHA is proposing a combined $132,000 in penalties.

Asbestos exposure has been linked to lung cancer. Inspectors say some workers also were exposed to lead-based paint and electrical hazards.
