Hazard Communication/Right-To-Know/Universal Precautions

"Right-to-Know" legislation provides employees with information about the known and suspected health hazards that may result from working with toxic substances. Employees have a legal right to this information. This assists them in making knowledgeable and reasoned decisions with respect to any personal risks of their employment and the need for corrective action.

You must complete the training within 60 days of district approval to remain eligible to substitute teach. To fulfill this requirement, you must attend the 45-minute training at our office or through another New York school district.
