OSHA Issues Poster Scam Alert

OSHA has posted an alert on its homepage reminding employers that its publications and posters, including the "OSHA Workplace Poster," are available free to anyone who asks by simply visiting www.osha.gov/pls/publications/pubindex.list.

The reminder, OSHA says, has been posted because the agency continues to receive complaints from employers who have received "official looking" announcements and--in some cases--threatening notices, messages, or telephone calls from various companies requiring that employers purchase OSHA documents from them in order to remain in compliance with OSHA rules and regulations.

In addition, OSHA says it has also learned of a few cases in which individuals, falsely identifying themselves as Department of Labor or OSHA employees, contact employers threatening fines if they do not purchase specific materials.

OSHA's publications, posters, fact sheets, etc., can be ordered through the publications office or, in most cases, downloaded directly from the Web site.

If an employer feels they've received a fraudulent solicitation, they can contact the agency at 1-800-321-OSHA (6742). To contact any OSHA area office throughout the nation for information on specific workplace safety and health requirements, go to www.osha.gov/html/RAmap.html for a list of office addresses and phone numbers.
