California Free Printable Job Safety Law Posters California Safety and Health Protection on the Job Required

The Safety and Health Protection on the Job is a job safety law poster by the California Department Of Industrial Relations. This is a mandatory posting for all employers in California, and businesses who fail to comply may be subject to fines or sanctions.

This poster must be posted in a conspicuous place where all employees will see it. This poster talks about rights that employees have such as complying with all workplace safety and health standards, rights of employees when workplace hazards exist and a right to employees to not be discriminated against or retaliated against should they choose to report unsafe and/or unhealthful conditions.


CA All-In-One Labor Poster: Instead of printing out dozens of posters, employers can also purchase an all-in-one poster that covers both California and Federal poster requirements by clicking here .
