Public Employee Hazardous Chemical Protection and Right To Know

The State of Georgia has enacted legislation to protect employees from the dangers of hazardous chemicals which may be encountered in the workplace. Southern Polytechnic State University has developed a plan to assure that employees receive training and information about hazardous chemicals present in their workplace. As an employee of SPSU, you must make sure that you attend one of the basic training classes offered by the university. Those employees whose jobs involve the handling of such materials must receive additional training in the safe use, storage, and disposal of any chemical they use.
