OSHA issues warning on poster scam
OSHA Healthcare Connection, February 5, 2008
If you are being pressured to buy the OSHA poster to be in compliance, you may be the victim of fraud.
OSHA issued a warning on January 29 that it is receiving "complaints from employers who have received 'official looking' announcements and-in some cases-threatening notices, messages, or telephone calls" from companies requiring the purchase of OSHA documents from them.
OSHA publications and posters are available free to any employer. Click on the image at left for information on ordering or downloading the poster from the agency's Web site.

- It would be nice if the person from OSHA, the one who authorized this article, would provide an extension as to where to report fraud. I do not understand why a "blank" authorization is given on articles like this. Has the person who authorized this article actually tried to call in and test a fraud report on this call-in number? None of the prompts are geared towards reporting fraud.
