Missouri workers have the right to know when they are exposed to toxic chemicals at their places of work.

OSHA proposed additional penalties for repeat offenses after it was found that workers remained exposed to Methylene Chloride that can cause occupational diseases with long-term effects.

Business owners in Missouri have many responsibilities related to the safety of their workers. In addition to following the safety regulations that are prescribed by the Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration, employers should inform their employees of potential threats that may cause an occupational disease.
