Connecticut Hazard Communication : What you need to know


In Connecticut, private sector employers (businesses and nonprofit organizations) are governed by the requirements of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act). Public sector employers (state and local governments, school systems, commissions, etc.) must follow state occupational safety and health requirements, including hazard communication. Connecticut has adopted the federal rules by reference, and also requires public sector employers to inform employees about carcinogens produced or used in the workplace. The state has also adopted its own information posting and employee notification requirements.
