Do you keep a safety bulletin board?

The Washington Code requires companies to keep a safety bulletin board. It requires:

  • Installing and maintaining a safety bulletin board in every fixed workplace (establishment) that has eight or more employees. Make sure it’s large enough to post information such as the following:
  • Safety bulletins
  • Safety newsletters
  • Safety posters
  • Accident statistics (OSHA 300A form)
  • Other safety educational material

Washington Retail sends out a monthly safety packet to members. The majority of content is for a safety bulletin board. The board is also a good place to post notes from your last safety meeting. Remember that Labor and Industries requires that you have 12 of the last safety meetings’ notes on hand for review by employees.

Members can find past issues of the RS SAFETY Meetings archive here.
