  • All workplaces must display the updated Health & Safety Law poster, but many businesses are unaware that the deadline is looming, according to workplace equipment supplier, Slingsby
Health and Safety Legislation Deadline

As part of the Health and Safety Information for Employees regulations, since 1999 a poster must be prominently displayed, but the poster has changed and must be in place by 5th April 2014. A pocket card is now available for employees who do not work on-site.

A helpline is now being provided on the poster, rather than contact details for local enforcing authorities.

Dominic Slingsby, managing director said, “The old Health & Safety law poster is a familiar sight but despite it being easily recognisable to millions of people very few have ever read it. The new poster is designed to be easy to digest, with colour images and less text.

“We’ve been selling the updated poster since it was first unveiled but we know from our regular site visits to businesses across all industries that lots of organisations are still using the old poster.”
