HELENA-The Montana Department of Labor & Industry has released a new “5 in 1” employee rights poster with updated information provided by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) highlighting workplace safety.
Employers must display the poster in a conspicuous place where their employees can see it, however previous versions of the OSHA poster do not need to be replaced.
These new on-the-job safety updates provide information about OSHA inspection of workplaces, how to receive information and training on job hazards, the steps necessary for reporting a work-related injury or illness, and the best practices to raise safety and health concerns with their employer or OSHA.
“For employers, the poster informs them of their legal obligation to provide a safe workplace,” said Labor Commissioner Pam Bucy. “The Montana Department of Labor & Industry takes seriously our commitment to informing employers of their responsibilities to train all workers in a language and vocabulary they can understand, and comply with OSHA standards.”
The updated poster may be obtained at no charge by calling Miles City Job Service at 406-232-8340.
The Montana Department of Labor & Industry exists to promote and protect the well-being of Montana’s workers, employers and citizens, and to uphold their rights and responsibilities.
