New Version of OSHA’s Required Job Safety Poster Now Available
OSHA released its latest version of their “Job Safety and Health—It's The Law!” poster April 29 which employers must
display if covered by the OSH Act or be subjected to citations or penalties if they fail to do so. Employers do not need to replace previous versions of the poster. The poster is free and can be downloaded on OSHA’s website.
This is the first time the poster has been updated since 2007 and includes new employer obligations for reporting to OSHA within 24 hours of a worker suffering an amputation, the loss of an eye or any incident that results in at least one worker being hospitalized.
