Employers to get new workplace posters

BY THE TRI-CITY HERALDJanuary 5, 2013 

Washington employers will be receiving a new set of required workplace posters from the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries.

A major change prompted the mailing -- injured workers must now see a network medical provider for ongoing care.

Employers covered by Washington's workers' compensation program must post three posters from L&I: Notice to Employees-If a Job Injury Occurs; Job Safety and Health Law; and Your Rights as a Worker.

Employers must post the posters where employees can read them and remove the previous editions. Additional free copies can be ordered at www.Posters.Lni.wa.gov.
