OSHA says materials are free; warns against fraud
Noting numerous complaints it has received, OSHA is reminding employers
that its publications and posters are available at no cost.
The agency said some employers have received "official-looking"
announcements--and in some cases threatening notices--from companies saying
employers must purchase OSHA documents from those companies to remain
in compliance with OSHA rules and regulations.
OSHA advises employers not to become "victims of fraudulent solicitation
practices or incur unnecessary costs."
OSHA's publications and posters are available at its publications page
at www.osha.gov/pls/publications/pubindex.list. Publications, posters,
fact sheets, etc., can be ordered through the publications office or,
in most cases, downloaded directly from the website, the agency said.
