Tennessee Printable Free Job Safety Law Posters A Safe and Healthful Workplace in Tennessee is the Law! Poster Mandatory

The A Safe and Healthful Workplace in Tennessee is the Law! is a Tennessee job safety law poster provided for businesses by the Tennessee Department Of Labor and Workforce Development. This is a required poster for all Tennessee employers, and any business that fails to post this notification may be subject to penalties or fines.

This poster details Tennessee's laws on safety and health in the workplace. It declares that the State underwrites health and safety in the workplace, specifically with the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1972. More specifically, citizens in the State of Tennessee have several rights under the law: One, employees have the right, confidentially if they so choose, to notify their employer or the government about a TOSHA violation. Two, employees can request a TOSHA inspection if they believe their workplace to be in violation of the law.

Three, employees can have TOSHA vitiation issued to their employer, which must then be posted publicly. Four, employers cited by TOSHA must correct hazards by the suspense given them by TOSHA when they found themselves cited or risk being shut down by TOSHA. Five, employees have a right to know if they are exposed to dangerous or harmful substances as well as a right to have such exposure be permanently annotated in their medical records. Finally, employees must post all of these rights and standards publicly and shall not willfully prevent any employee from exercising any of these rights.
