Q: What are the requirements for displaying the OSHA poster?

ImageA: OSHA requires employers to continuously display a poster prepared by the U.S. Department of Labor that informs employees of protections afforded under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970.

Display the poster in a conspicuous place where employees as well as applicants for employment can view it.

If you would prefer to obtain a free, pre-printed copy of this poster, you may do so by submitting your order through OSHA’s Online Publications Order Form. Simply select Publication Number 3165 from the list.

Employers subject to state-administered occupational safety and health plans should obtain and post the state’s equivalent poster.

When working out of state do we need to display that state’s labor/federal poster or do we use our home state.

Not exactly sure what you mean, but, for example, if you have the home office in PA and a satellite office in MN, display the federal poster for the PA worksite, and the MN poster for that worksite.
