Question: What are the size requirements for federal workplace posters?

Answer:

There are only two posters where the regulations specify a size (the OSHA poster and Executive Order 13496 poster), but all federal workplace posters must be easily readable. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) provides posters in the proper size for free on the DOL Poster Topic page or by calling the Department at 1-866-4-USA-DOL (1-866-487-2365).
