OSHA releases new "It's The Law" poster
April 2015: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has released a new version of the
“Job Safety and Health - It's The Law!” poster, expanding the lists of employee rights and employer
responsibilities, as well as providing additional information about training and injury reporting
The newly designed poster has been updated to include new reporting obligations for employers, who
must now report every fatality and every 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.
The OSHA poster is part of the Complete Compliance Federal poster which combines all SIX mandatory
posters from all SIX Federal Agencies in one convenient format, ensuring you are in compliance. All
Federal 6-in-1 posters are printed on recycled paper and laminated for extra durability. While previous
versions of this notice are still acceptable we strongly recommend that you replace your poster with the
most updated version today. All covered employers are required to display the poster in a
conspicuous place where workers can see it.
