Public employers covered by the New Jersey Worker and Community Right to Know Act must complete an annual workplace survey listing the names and quantities of hazardous chemicals stored and used at their facilities.
Please note that Community Right to Know Surveys from private employers are to be submitted to the NJDEP.

We recommend that employers review their current chemical inventory and complete the following steps:
Keep track of new chemicals that arrive at each facility each calendar year and obtain a manufacturer’s Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).
Properly dispose of any chemicals that are not in use.
Organize the remaining containers of chemicals and products so that quantities are easy to count.
Ensure that you have an up-to-date manufacturer’s Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for each product in your inventory.
Check the manufacturer’s MSDS and the product label to ensure the products ingredients are listed. If not, contact the product manufacturer or your supplier to obtain the information.
Identify the chemicals and ingredients that are on the RTK Hazardous Substance List that need to be reported. You can search the List using the RTK substance #, chemical name, CAS #, or DOT #.
