Posting Requirements

There are various requirements for contact names, policies, codes of practice, limits, or signage to be posted at the workplace. It is an important component of an effective health and safety program and health and safety practices.

As an employer you must post:

  • A copy of the Act and any regulations that may apply to your workplace.
  • Regulations that would apply to most workplaces include:
    • General Regulation 91-191
    • Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System 2016-6
    • First Aid 2004-130
  • Others that may apply depending on the operations of your workplace include:
    • Code of Practice for Working Alone 92-133
    • Working with Materials Containing Asbestos 92-106
    • Underground Mining Regulations-96-205
  • Notices and reports required by the Act, and any notice which an officer considers important for employees to understand their rights, liabilities and duties.
  • If applicable, names of the joint health and safety (JHSC) committee members at that place of employment, and the minutes of the most recent committee meeting. The same requirements apply to a contractor on a project site.
  • If applicable, the name of the elected health and safety representative. The same requirement applies at a contractor project site.

Other posting requirements include:

  • Posting by the officer of a copy of an order he or she has issued at a workplace where there is no JHSC committee or health and safety representative.
  • A copy of an order when there has been an appeal to the Chief Compliance Officer that has been confirmed, varied, revoked, or suspended and where there is no JHSC committee or health and safety representative.
  • Any codes of practice established or adopted for the workplace.

The General Regulation also requires that the following items be posted:

  • Signage indicating the location of emergency showers or eyewash fountains when the workplace is required to have them - ANSI standard Z358.1-1990 “American National Standard for Emergency Eyewash and Shower Equipment”.
  • Signage indicating the range of noise levels measured and warning of the noise hazard if the noise level exceeds 85 dBA.
  • A copy of the sketches of permanent anchor point (s) near the entrance to a roof.
  • A copy of the emergency procedures if an employee may fall into water or other liquid and may need assistance to reach safety.
  • The name of any gases stored and signs indicating no smoking near the storage areas.
  • The safe working load capacity of a hoisting apparatus so that the operator of the apparatus can see it while using the apparatus.
  • In an obvious location on an industrial lift truck, the manufacturer’s rated capacity.
  • On woods roads, the load capacity at both ends of a bridge.

The First Aid Regulation requires employers to post:

  • An emergency communication plan
  • The names of the trained first aiders and
  • Signs indicating the location of first aid kits.

Several posting requirements can also be found in the Underground Mining Regulation-96-105 and the Code of Practice for Working with Materials Containing Asbestos in New Brunswick. It is important to review these documents to establish the posting requirements if they apply to your workplace.

Where posting is not possible, the employer must make sure each employee is appropriately informed. Electronic access to the Act and regulations and other documents is acceptable under certain conditions.
