OSHA Watch Question of the Month - March/April 2003

March/April Question of the Month: "What posters are required by Federal Law in an ambulatory medical practice?"

Answer: The only poster required by OSHA is the "It's The Law" poster (Form 3165), which is included in Quality America's OSHA Safety Porgram manual. Other non-OSHA posters that your practice should post are the EEOC notice, the minimum wage law and the Polygraph Law posters. If your practice employs 50 or more employees, you also need to display the Family and Medical Leave Act poster. To determine exactly which posters are needed in a medical practice, visit the Department of Labor's poster advisor website at http://www.dol.gov./elaws/posters.htm.
