The concept of right-to-know refers to laws in place that require employers to inform all of their workers of any chemicals or other hazardous substances they may come into contact with throughout the course of their employment. The Occupational Safety and Health Act provides the framework for the rules business owners must follow in protecting their employees from any dangerous materials. These laws not only require employers to state what exact substances employees may encounter, but business owners must also say what the possible consequences are of coming into contact with such materials. The Environmental Protection Agency has a list of all such hazardous substances.
