asbestos at work site?

I am working in an old factory refinishing wood floors. The contractor recently took out asbestos tiles. I really did not know alot about asbestos untill recently. They had a couple workers chip it out (by hand and automated) It was very dusty and smelly in the whole area. They sweeped it all up and disposed of it. You could hardly see through the dust and everyone had to go through it to get down the hall. No one had warned anybody and no precautions were taken. I now am sanding rooms that (i was just told) had asbestos tile in them. I am sanding the felt and glue that is left. I told my boss about the asbestos and he said my normal respirator is fine and that is all i need. I am very concerned about the amount of asbestos I am taking in. Is the contractor responsible for anything and is my boss. What can I do or what should I do. Any help would be greatly apreciated asap
