At the top of everyone’s health and safety poster menu should be the ‘Health and Safety Law Poster’, which if you click on the link below will take you to the HSE website to show you what the current poster looks like and what the old one looks like. We thought this would be handy for you to know to prevent you from displaying an out of date poster, afterall it is a legal requirement to display this in your office. Unfortunately we can’t currently find a resource offering free health and safety law posters.. but keep checking back here as that may change and if it does’s we’ll keep you posted!
Free Health and Safety Posters
The HSE are providing businesses with free posters to download from the health and safety executive’s website. The posters cover workplace hazards, for example slips and trips. The reason that these posters are free is that this still accounts for a vast majority of workplace injuries. You can personalise these posters for your business by entering your company details on them. Free safety posters downloadable via the HSE’s website include:
- Slip risk poster – suitable for any industry
