Right-To-Know in the context of the American Workplace and community environmental law is the legal principle that the individual has the right to know the chemicals to which they may be exposed to in their daily living. Our training materials have been specifically designed to assist with the following work environments to comply with federal, state and municipal Right-To-Know regulations: Auto Service Facilities, Cleaning and Maintenance, Industrial Facilities, Food Retailing and Hospitality Industry. These products also address the major education and training requirements in the "chemical hazard" laws for each of these work environments. The topics that are part of all of these materials include chemical hazard concepts, The Material Safety Data Sheet, types of hazardous chemicals, characteristics and effects of various types of chemicals and many more!
Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) - Congress enacted EPCRA in 1986 to establish requirements for federal, state and local governments, tribes, and industry regarding emergency planning and "community right-to-know" reporting on hazardous and toxic chemicals. The "community right-to-know" parts help increase the public's knowledge and access to information on chemicals at individual facilities, their uses, and releases into the environment. States and communities, working with facilities, can use the information to improve chemical safety and protect public health and the environment.
