1. Display your labor law posters in a conspicuous area.
Did you know labor law posters must be displayed in a conspicuous area? “Conspicuous area” can be any common area where most of your employees are around daily, such as a break room or kitchen.
2. Protect your labor law posters from wear and tear.
Some posters are required to remain intact or unaltered. For example, the Occupational Safety and Health Association states “each employer is required to take steps to ensure that such notices are not altered, defaced, or covered by other material.”
At GovDocs, we laminate our labor law posters to maintain durability for the entirety of their compliance dates. This helps protect the posters in high-traffic areas, like break rooms and kitchens.
3. Display your labor law posters according to size requirements.
Just because you print a labor law poster on your desk printer, doesn’t mean your location is compliant. In fact, many labor law postings must be a specific size.
Size requirements optimize visibility for your employees. However, the size depends on the posting. For example, the Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) Job Safety and Health posting must be 8.5 by 14 inches to be compliant.
4. Make sure your poster font sizes meet the legal requirements.
Most postings have font requirements, as well, for easy readability. Using the same example, the Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) Job Safety and Health posting must feature a minimum 10-point font.
5. Remove outdated labor law posters immediately upon arrival of updated posters.
Not only will this help keep your bulletin board or display area clean, it will create less confusion for your employees to reference.
