Employers have a legal duty under the Health and Safety Information for Employees Regulations (HSIER) to display the approved poster in a prominent position in each workplace or to provide each worker with a copy of the approved leaflet that outlines British health and safety law.
The 2009 poster (right) replaces the version which was published in April 1999. To help avoid an unnecessary burden on businesses, the HSE Board set a five-year transition period for replacing the 1999 poster and leaflet.
The 1999 poster must be replaced with the 2009 poster no later than 5 April 2014.
