2019-2020 Employee Handbook

The Federal Right-To-Know Law

The Federal Hazardous Communication (HAZCOM) standard "Right-to-Know" Law requires that employees be informed of all toxic substances within their work area and trained in safety, adverse effects, and disposal of such materials. In keeping with this requirement, a video on “Right-to-Know” is located at the circulation desk in the library or may be obtained from the college’s safety technician 352-854-2322, ext.1729. Supervisors are responsible for safety training and work area details. New hires are required to sign a HAZCOM standard statement during benefits sign-on certifying they have been provided with the appropriate information.
