For the first time since 2007, OSHA has revised the “It’s the Law” poster that all employers must display. Take down your tattered old copy and replace it with the new one.
The free poster—download a copy—informs workers of their and health rights, and employers of their responsibilities.
The poster has been updated to include new OSHA obligations for employers, who must now report every fatality and every hospitalization, amputation and loss of an eye.
It also describes employer responsibilities for training workers in a language and vocabulary they can understand, complying with OSHA standards and posting citations at or near the place of an alleged violation.
Display the poster in a conspicuous place where workers can see it. OSHA requires reproductions of the poster to be at least 8½” x 14”.
