Mississippi Right to Know/ Hazard Communication: What you need to know

The hazard communication standard, or “worker right-to-know” law, regulates how information about workplace chemical hazards is communicated to employees. As with most workplace health and safety standards, the worker right-to-know law has developed in large part according to standards adopted under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act).

Because Mississippi does not have its own approved occupational safety and health program, the OSH Act and its worker right-to-know standards are the governing law of the state in all private employment (private businesses and nonprofit organizations). The state has no worker right-to-know law for public sector workplaces. Check with your county or municipal codes. There is additional information and a detailed discussion of the federal regulations.
Workplaces with a high risk of chemical exposure typically require considerable resources for maintaining compliance with state and federal right-to-know laws. BLR, Inc., publishes booklets and other materials that can help employers train workers in the safe handling of hazardous materials. Contact BLR's Customer Service at 800-727-5257 for details.
