If you employ anyone, you must display the health and safety law poster, or provide each worker with a copy of the equivalent pocket card. You must display the poster where your workers can easily read it.
The poster outlines British health and safety laws and includes a straightforward list that tells workers what they and their employers need to do. You can also add details of any employee safety representatives or health and safety contacts if you wish to do so.
A revised version of the health and safety law poster was published in 2009 and, as of 5 April 2014, you are obliged to display it or give workers the equivalent leaflet. It makes it easier for employers and saves time by removing the requirement to enter details of the local enforcing authority and the Employment Medical Advisory Service
