I am part of a martial arts group and we recently moved our practice to a new location. The new location is a medium sized warehouse, a building about 20 years old. The entire ceiling of the building is insulated with pink fiberglass, but is left exposed and hanging. Is this hazardous? Is this a violation of the city building code?

Thank you in advance for any responses.

It isn't dangerous but is unhealthy. It can cause eye and throat irritation and if it gets into your clothes, itching.
