Safety tip of the week
If you own a business, several state agencies require you to display free posters covering worker rights and safety in a visible workplace location.
Here’s a list of the posters from the appropriate agency here.
In the lower right hand corner of the poster there is a date stamp that will show how current it is. Please compare this list to the ones you have posted.
12/2012 – Job Safety and Health Law
06/2013 – Your Rights as a Worker
04/2012 – Unemployment Benefits Poster
11/2009 – Equal Opportunity Employment
07/2009 – Fair Labor Standards Act – (FLSA)
01/2012 – Employee Polygraph Protection Act
02/2013 – Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993
12/2014 – Washington State Minimum wage
If you need posters quickly, you can print off the poster from the link. Otherwise you can order them directly from the issuing agency.
If an L&I compliance officer were to stop by your business unannounced, posters would be one of the items that they would check as well as your Safety Meeting Log Book, Accident Prevention Program and Safety Data Sheets (for companies that work with chemicals).
