Utah Printable Free Job Safety Law Posters Workplace Safety and Health in the State of Utah Poster Mandatory

The Workplace Safety and Health in the State of Utah is an Utah job safety law poster provided for businesses by the Utah Labor Commission. This is a required poster for all Utah employers, and any business that fails to post this notification may be subject to penalties or fines.

This poster delineates Utah's laws on safety and health in the workplace. It begins by clearly stating that the notice, the poster itself, must be clearly displayed in the workplace. It goes on to note that the foundation for Utah's standards for a safe and healthful place of work derive from the Utah Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1972. Further, it notes that the Government, specifically the Utah Labor Commission, of the State of Utah is responsible for underwriting and enforcing, if necessary, the Utah OSHA Act. It goes on to declare that employees have six basic rights or duties in regards to the 1972 OSHA law:

One, employees must comply with all workplace safety and health standards set by their employer. Two, employers have the right to notify their employers about workplace hazards or suspected OSHA violations. Three, employees can file an OSHA complaint with the Utah Labor Commission. Four, employees are entitled to see all OSHA citations, if any exist, issued to their employer. Five, employees are entitled to knowing that their employees has corrected or is correcting any issues raised by the Labor Commission in regards to OSHA. Six, employees have a right to copies of their medical records with any hazards from the workplace noted in them.

Employers also have some basic rights or duties under the Utah OSH Act of 1972: One, they are required to report all workplace incidents in a timely manner. Two, they are required to report all incidents completely and truthfully. Three, employers must accept OSHA inspections at any time and correct deficiencies found and noted by citations in a timely manner and with the intent of amending the problem, absent any purpose of evasion. Four, employers are afforded the right to respectfully contest an OSHA violation in court for up to thirty days following an original citation. The poster closes by encouraging any readers to contact the State of Utah Labor Commission with any questions, comments, or concerns.
