Hazard Communication Worker Right-to-Know Program

The Hazard Communication Worker Right-to-Know Program protects the health and safety of public employees by ensuring that public employers provide information, training and appropriate personal protective equipment to their employees who may be exposed to hazardous chemicals in their workplaces.

Public employers include, but are not limited to, cities, counties, state agencies, public schools, public colleges and universities, and volunteer service organizations. Employees of private facilities in Texas are covered by a similar federal regulation (Hazard Communication Standard), which is administrated and enforced by the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Notice to Employees

Public employers looking for the Notice to Employees posters can find printable copies in English and Spanish on the Publications Page of this website. The Notice to Employees poster is required by the Texas Hazard Communication Act and should be posted in clear view where notices are usually posted.
