03:01:10   Hazardous Chemical Right-To-Know

The Northeast State Community College Hazardous Chemical Right-To-Know Program is modeled after the Tennessee Hazardous Chemical Right-To-Know Act passed by the Tennessee General Assembly on May 23, 1985. The Tennessee Right-To-Know Law was enacted because of the expressed concern relative to the proliferation and variety of chemicals present in our society and their effect on the safety, health, and welfare of persons living and working in Tennessee.

The intent and purpose of Northeast State Community College’s Right-To-Know Program is to provide necessary information that will enable the college employees and students to become knowledgeable of the chemicals they work with and to which they may be exposed.
