The Federal OSHA Job Safety and Health Poster informs workers of their rights under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, including the right to a safe workplace and freedom from retaliation. It also reminds employers of their vital responsibilities under the law, such as compliance with all applicable OSHA standards and reporting requirements, and of the availability of free assistance for small and medium-sized employers to identify and correct hazards without citation or penalty.
OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1903.2 requires all covered employers to post this notice in a conspicuous place or places where notices to employees are customarily posted.
States with an OSHA-approved state plan may have their own version of the OSHA Job Safety and Health Poster, so make sure you check your state requirements to see if you are covered by a state plan that requires posting of an additional notice. Currently, 21 states and Puerto Rico have state plans that cover all employers. 5 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands have state plans that cover only state and local government employer.
