Why Training about "Hazard Communication Training - Right to Know" Matters An estimated 30 million workers are exposed or potentially exposed to more than 650,000 hazardous materials each year. Hazard Communication is a requirement of state and federal law. There is a government regulation called the Hazard Communication Standard that describes what employers must do to inform employees about process hazards. OSHA regulations for the Hazard Communication Standard may be found at 29 CFR 1910.1200. There are typically 20,000 incidents of exposure to hazardous materials annually that result in one or more lost workdays because of illnesses or injuries from these materials.
