OSHA Posters: February 2023 Safety & Hygiene Corner

Q: Can I shrink the size of my OSHA poster?

A: No, you cannot reduce the size of the OSHA poster. OSHA states, in 1903.2, that
reproductions or facsimiles of Federal posters are to be at least 8½ inches by 14 inches,
and the printing size is at least 10 pt. The caption or heading on the poster shall be in
large type, generally not less than 36 pt. This poster must be posted in each
establishment, in a conspicuous place where notices to employees are customarily
posted. This poster is not to be altered, defaced, or covered by other material.

In the event, your authority having jurisdiction is Public Employment Risk Reduction
Program, PERRP, the same size requirement applies to the State PERRP Poster.

Both posters are available for free by download. See
