Health and Safety Law Poster

Employers have a legal duty to display the new updated version of the HSE Health and Safety Law poster by no later than 5th April 2014

In 2009, the HSE replaced the old version of the Health and Safety Law poster which was first published in April 1999. Research showed the old version was visually unappealing and rarely read, so the new poster was designed to be much more engaging and is available in a variety of formats to make health and safety information more accessible.

Posters should be displayed in a prominent position in each workplace or employers are asked to provide each worker with a copy of the approved leaflet that outlines British health and safety law. The 2009 poster also reflects changes in the law to reduce the administrative cost to employers of having to provide additional written information on the poster or with the leaflet, and having to keep this information up to date.

To help avoid an unnecessary burden on businesses, the HSE Board set a five-year transition period for replacing the 1999 poster and leaflet. The 1999 poster or leaflet must be replaced with the 2009 poster or leaflet no later than 5th April 2014.

Note that employers will still be complying with the law if they continue to display the 1999 poster after 6th April 2009. However, where employers do keep the old poster, there will be a continuing duty, in the period up to April 2014, to keep the additional written information up to date.
