Right to Know Workshop

The Right to Know workshop is about your exposure to hazardous substances in your workplace and community. The New Jersey Worker and Community Right to Know Act, which became law in 1983, requires public and private employers to provide information about hazardous substances and :
  • give public employees information about what is located at their workplace and how to work with these hazardous substances safety;
  • help firefighters, police, and other emergency personnel to adequately plan for and respond to hazardous substance incidents such as fires, explosions or spills;
  • provide data for monitoring and tracking hazardous substances in the workplace and the environment.
