It is important for employers to put on Safety posters in their premises of work. The role of these safety posters should be to educate the workers of dangers they need to avoid and precautions they need to take to achieve that safety in the workplace. However, employers are not necessarily required to put these posters on display in the workplace, therefore there might be accidents. One excellent type of safety posters that must be there are the labor law posters. Both federal and State labor law posters are required for business organizations.
If a business or organization has more than one employee, it is required by law to display federal and state labor law posters. An employer may choose to purchase these posters individually, or he may include them when buying other safety posters. The law also dictates that state labor law posters should be posted somewhere conspicuous where all employees of the company will have a daily access to them. Examples of these places include the main lobby or the break room. If an organization has been multiple workstations, then each location should have its own posters displayed. There are businesses that do not need to display labor law poser, which include:
1. Sole propriety or a business without employees
2. Businesses that use contract employees
3. Businesses with a workforce that has volunteered.
4. A family business in which all employees are related.
