The New Jersey Worker and Community Right to Know Act requires public and private employers to provide information about hazardous substances at their workplaces. The Act:

  • Informs public employees about chemical hazards at their workplace so they can work safely with these hazardous substances
  • Helps firefighters, police, and other emergency responders adequately plan for and respond to incidents such as fires, explosions, or spills
  • Provides data for monitoring and tracking hazardous substances in the workplace and the environment

The Mercer County Division of Public Health County Environmental Health Act Agency maintains surveys and records in a central file as the County Lead Agency for New Jersey Department of Health’s Right to Know Program. The Agency works with the Department of Health to enforce codes, rules, and regulations relating to compliance among facilities required to file Right To Know surveys and provides trainings, outreach visits, and telephone interactions and distributes educational Right To Know materials.
