OSHA unveiled Monday its new “It’s The Law” poster. The poster, which serves as a notice of employee rights, is required to be displayed in every workplace in the U.S.
The current edition of the poster is still valid and employers do not have to replace existing posters with the newer version.
“The new OSHA poster provides employees with the information they need to protect themselves if there are unsafe or unhealthful conditions in the workplace,” said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke, Jr. “Presenting clear descriptions of employee rights is an important step, but the new poster also reminds employers of their two most basic responsibilities – furnishing a place of employment free from recognized hazards and complying with OSHA’s hazard-specific health and safety standards.”
The poster is free and available in English and Spanish. It can be downloaded here, or employers can go to any OSHA regional or area office, or the OSHA Publications Office.
