The Health and Safety Executive has produced a range of health and safety law products. Employers are required, by law, to either display the HSE-approved law poster or to provide each of their workers with the equivalent leaflet.
If you choose to purchase the Health and safety law poster it must be displayed on all business premises. There are various versions of the poster, so that you can select the most appropriate for your business, depending on where in the UK your business is based.
The Health and safety law poster products tell workers what they and their employers need to do in simple terms.
With health and safety becoming more of a day to day priority in the workplace, it is essential that employees have visibility of the correct health and safety procedures.
Employers have a legal duty under the Health and Safety Information for Employees Regulations (HSIER) to display the approved HSE poster in a prominent position in each workplace that outlines British health and safety law.
The 2009 poster replaces the version which was published in April 1999. The 1999 poster or leaflet must be replaced with the 2009 poster or leaflet no later than 5 April 2014. Each copy of the 2009 poster incorporates a unique, serially numbered hologram in the bottom right corner for authenticity.
