You Have a Right to Know

In 1983, the Federal Government established the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard. This standard is designed to protect employees who use hazardous materials on the job.

The Hazard Communication Standard states that companies which produce and use hazardous materials must provide their employees with information and training on the proper handling and use of these materials.

You, as an employee, have a Right to Know about the hazardous materials used in your work area and the potential effects of these materials upon your health and safety.
