The HSE issued the latest revision of the poster on 6th April 2009. There is a five year transitional period for these and any previous versions of the poster be replaced by the new versions no later than 5 April 2014.
The University is required to display copies of the revised statutory ‘Health and Safety Law' poster at prominent locations throughout the University's buildings, or provide employees with a Health and Safety Law leaflet produced by the HSE.
The purchase of a copy of the poster for each and every University building is not a cost-effective approach. However, in order to comply with this legal requirement the Health and Safety Department have purchased a number of posters and these are displayed in suitably prominent locations, which are accessible to University employees.
Please get in touch with the Department if you would like a new poster to replace any old style ones in your buildings/premises.
