Employers are required to make employees aware of all potentially hazardous materials in the workplace. In order to comply with the Rhode Island Hazardous Substance Right-to-Know Act (Chapter 28-21), CCRI offers its employees periodic training sessions which are available on videotape at each campus Library.
All new employees, within 30 days after their first day of employment, must view these Hazardous Materials Right-to-Know videos. Employees should obtain permission from their supervisor to devote approximately 45 minutes of time for viewing the videos at the library. Employees must sign at the audiovisual desk so that the College will have a record of their participation, which is required by law.
