New Jersey Right-to-Know Services
J.A. Montgomery Consulting offers full Right-to-Know (RTK) compliance services. The New Jersey Department of Health RTK requirements are complex and time consuming. Our professionals assist clients with staying fully compliant, including:
- On-site Inventory: Every chemical product used at each reporting location, including common cleaning products such as Windex and Lysol, must be included on the RTK survey. Our professionals conduct a physical on-site chemical inventory for each reporting location.
- Preparation of the Community Right-to-Know Survey: An electronic RTK survey must be submitted to the New Jersey Department of Health by July 15, every year. The annual electronic survey must be submitted to report any new products, remove old products, and update inventory amounts. J.A. Montgomery will prepare the electronic RTK survey for each location required to submit a survey.
- Right-to-Know Central File: J.A. Montgomery will create an electronic Right-to-Know Central File to include each reporting location. The Right-to-Know Central File will consist of the following components:
- Safety Data Sheets (SDS): SDS are required for every chemical product used at each reporting location. J.A. Montgomery will obtain the SDS for each chemical product inventoried and compile them within the central file in alphabetical order.
- Hazard Substance Facts Sheets (HSFS): HSFS are prepared for substances on the New Jersey Right to Know Substance List. The HSFS are required for hazardous substances at each reporting location. J.A. Montgomery provides a link to the New Jersey Right-to-Know website’s Hazardous Substance Fact Sheet page, which contains more than 1,600 HSFS prepared by the New Jersey Department of Health.
- Right-to-Know Survey: A copy of the last reported full survey and any subsequent surveys are required to be maintained at each reporting location. These surveys will be obtained and filed in chronological order.
- Written Hazard Communication Program: All workplaces that expose employees to hazardous chemicals must have a written program that describes how the standard will be implemented. J.A. Montgomery prepares a written Hazard Communication Program for each reporting location.
- Training Documentation: If Hazard Communication/Globally Harmonized System training is provided by the MEL Safety Institute for your municipality, a training report will be generated and maintained in the central file for each reporting location.
