Tennessee adopts the rules of OSHA, and therefore, employers subject to OSHA's jurisdiction must display the "Job Safety and Health - It's the Law!" poster. Failure to post the notice will result in possible citations.

The poster updates the information regarding an employer's obligations to report to OSHA all work-related fatalities within eight hours and all in-patient hospitalizations, amputations, and losses of an eye within 24 hours of learning about the incident. OSHA regulations on the OSHA poster can be found 29 C.F.R. §1903.2.
