Employers are required to display a poster prepared by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that informs workers of the protections afforded them under the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act.\nThe poster must be displayed in a conspicuous place where employees can view it. Private employers may use the actual poster provided for free by OSHA, or a suitable reproduction or facsimile. Previous versions of the poster are allowed. Employers in states with an OSHA-approved plan may have a state version of the OSHA poster.\n“The OSHA poster clearly lists the workers’ safety rights, as established by the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
