OSHA has new version of mandatory poster (2/12)

The poster, also known as the OSHA Notice of Employee Rights, is required to be displayed in every workplace in America. The current edition of the OSHA poster is still valid; employers are not required to replace their existing poster with the new version. The poster informs employers and employees of their rights and responsibilities for a safe and healthful workplace.

The poster depicts a variety of employees in various settings – from the medical field to the construction industry – and succinctly explains how employees may confidentially file a complaint, report an emergency or seek OSHA advice.

"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 OSHA director 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 both English and Spanish, and may be downloaded by this afternoon from www.osha.gov/pls/publications/pubindex.list#posters1. The poster may also be obtained from any OSHA regional or area office, or by writing to the OSHA Publications Office.
