Hazardous Chemical Information Act

The Delaware General Assembly passed the Hazardous Chemical Information Act, more commonly known as the Right-to-Know Law, in June 1984. The law is intended to provide employees with access to information regarding hazardous chemicals to which they may be exposed in the workplace. The law also required access to the same information for emergency service organizations whose members may become exposed to chemical hazards during emergency situations.

All students enrolled in courses that require handling of chemicals and hazardous materials are required by law to sign their names certifying that they have received training relative to these materials. The law states that this training is required a minimum of once a year. Additional information may be provided by your instructor.
