OSHA and CDC Posters
July 17th, 2007
Advertisements suggesting that workplace posters must be purchased from private companies continue to mislead offices. OSHA reminds places of employment that official OSHA posters are available free on their publications page. The CDC reports that healthcare facilities are receiving notices regarding hand hygiene requirements from private companies. Guidelines for Hand Hygiene in Healthcare Settings and accompanying educational posters may be downloaded, copied (without alteration) and distributed free of charge from the CDC's hand hygiene Web page. CDC encourages healthcare facilities who have additional questions about these advertisements to contact their state or local health department.
