The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, often referred to as the "employee right to know" law, requires that all employers who have potentially harmful chemicals in the workplace, must train their employees on the safe use and handling of those materials.

The Hazardous Communications Program has been developed to inform and train employees concerning the use and dangers associated with hazardous chemicals.
