Introduction and overview
The Employee Right-To-Know Act was passed by the Minnesota Legislature in 1983 and is intended to ensure that employees are aware of the dangers associated with hazardous substances, harmful physical agents, or infectious agents they may be exposed to in their workplaces. The Employee Right-To-Know Act applies to all employers in Minnesota with the exception of federal agencies. To comply with the Employee Right-To-Know (ERTK) standard, an employer must identify the hazardous substances, harmful physical agents, and infectious agents that are present in the workplace and provide information and training to employees who are “routinely exposed” to those substances or agents. A written ERTK program is required. More information: https://www.dli.mn.gov/business/safety-and-health-work
