Community Right to Know Team
The Oregon Community Right to Know and Protection Act (ORS 453.307-414) requires Oregon employers to report their hazardous substances to OSFM, including where they are stored, and the hazards associated with them. OSFM's Community Right to Know (CR2K) Program tracks and maintains these records. Information is then provided to emergency planners, first responders, health professionals, and the public so that measures can be taken to protect the citizens of Oregon, their property, and the environment from the risks associated with these substances.
For more information, call the Hazardous Substance Information Hotline at (503) 378-6835 or toll-free at (800) 454-6125.
