Hawaii Occupational Safety & Health Laws Required
The Occupational Safety & Health Laws is a job safety law poster by the Hawaii Department Of Labor and Industrial Relations. This is a mandatory posting for all employers in Hawaii, 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 describes many of the rights employees have that have to do with safety in the workplace such as the right to a safe and healthful workplace, to be able to notify their employers about workplace hazards, the right to request an inspection of the workplace and see citations given to the employer saying what is hazardous about the workplace, the right to record your exposure to toxic and harmful substances or conditions onto your medical records, and the right to file a safety and health complaint. Violations of this law will result in penalties to the employer.
