OSHA - HazCom/Right to Know

This OSHA - HazCom/Right to Know course, which is designed to fulfill the hazard-communication training requirements imposed by OSHA regulations (and New York State 'Right To Know' laws), provides information and training on workplace safety procedures regarding chemical products in the workplace.

Geography Covered: Americas | Duration: 30 minutes


More than 30 million American workers are exposed to hazardous chemicals in their workplaces. To ensure that workers are informed about these chemicals and any health and safety hazards they present, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) developed a "Hazard Communication Standard" (HCS) — also known as "HazCom" — covering some 650,000 chemical products found in more than three million workplaces.

HazCom/Right To Know affects all employees, regardless of their position, job function or responsibility. Besides providing important workplace safety procedures, HazCom/Right To Know is the law. The failure to comply with the applicable laws and regulations can lead to substantial fines and penalties. This course is intended to provide the information and training on HazCom required by OSHA regulations and many states' laws.

The topics covered in the course include:

  • Purpose of HazCom/Right To Know
  • Chemical basics
  • Recognizing chemical hazards
  • Hazardous chemicals in your workplace
