Workplace poster required by OSHA for every employer

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to put a poster in their work environment to serve as a reminder of the employees’ rights and how could they can keep themselves safe in their workplace daily.

According to the law, the poster entitled “Job Safety and Health: It’s the Law” should be placed by employers in visible areas within the workplace. The poster, created by OSHA, briefly discusses the rights of every employee and what is expected from employers. The information in the poster is in bullet points and comes in different sizes and languages to make sure everyone can understand the information. Employers can easily get a free copy of the poster in printable form by visiting the official OSHA website or by calling their toll-free number. Employers may face citations or stiff penalties if OSHA discovers they failed to stick a poster in the work environment.
