Right to Know

  • The New Jersey Worker and Community Right to Know Act requires public and private employers to provide information about hazardous substances at their workplaces. The Act:

     

    • Informs public employees about chemical hazards at their workplace so they can work safely with these hazardous substances;
    • Helps firefighters, police, and other emergency responders adequately plan for and respond to incidents such as fires, explosions or spills;
    • Provides data for monitoring and tracking hazardous substances in the workplace and the environment.
