Health and safety law poster

Where to get copies and where to display them

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​As an employer you have a legal duty to display the health and safety law poster. It should be located in a prominent position in each of your workplaces. On the poster you should add the details of health and safety contacts within​ your organisation.​

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) changed the poster in 2009. From 2014 all workplaces need to display the new version.

Here you can find information on where to get the poster and how to access alternative language versions.

Where to get the poster

You can buy the poster in various sizes and formats from the HSE site.

They also have a leaflet called 'Health and Safety Law: What you Need To Know'. You can issue this to employees who do not have a fixed place of work or those who work from home.​

Visit the HSE site for copies of the poster and leaflet

Alternative languages

If you have employees whose first language is not English you need to make sure that t​hey are able to understand the information within the poster or leaflets. 

You can download translated versions from the HSE website​​.​

If the language of your employee is not listed on the website then you will need to translate the information for them in another way. You could ask a colleague to act as a translator.
