The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) released a new version of its compliance poster, last updated in 2007.
OSHA’s compliance poster is free and can be downloaded and printed out. Employers must display the poster in a conspicuous place where workers can see it. Previous versions of the poster do not need to be replaced.
The newly designed poster informs workers of their rights to request an OSHA inspection of their workplace, receive information and training on job hazards, report a work-related injury or illness, and raise safety and health concerns with their employer or OSHA without being retaliated against.
The poster informs employers of their legal obligation to provide a safe workplace. In addition, it has been updated to include the new reporting obligations for employers, who must now report every fatality and hospitalization, amputation, and loss of an eye. It also informs employers of their responsibilities to train all workers in a language and vocabulary they can understand, comply with OSHA standards, and post citations at or near the place of an alleged violation.
