As to the questions of regulation, the major problem is that there usually needs to be some mechanism in place to be sure that a product bears the ENTIRE cost of its production, from beginning to end. If a production process is INHERENTLY dangerous, then the price of the product should include substantial insurance to cover the life of the people who bear the risks. If the companies making the product can ameliorate the risk, they need to do so in order to spread the risk and place the entire cost of the good on its eventual consumer rather than on its production workers.
This is really a form of capitalism, but in most cases it does require some government intervention to insure that all costs are included in the price of a good. The problem comes in when we are dealing internationally, where some governments may choose NOT to force employers to make those inclusions. There is not a lot we can do about that. Boycotts of their goods does nothing except ruin the markets for our own country's exports and make everyone the poorer by stifling trade.
