So I have been trying to find a way to hang up a poster in the production area. Only good way to do it is using thumbtacks. Understanding this may be a food safety hazard. Now the exact area where this poster is being hung is dealing with sealed product (already finished and packaged). Would that still be a hazard? I am thinking not so much but how are auditors going to see this?

An Auditor will ask how you track the thumb tacks.

 

Use 2 sided tape.

I tried using double sided tape but it woudnt stick properly due to material of the wall! 

 

I solved it by placing the poster in the break area.... I guess it'll do.

3M make this adhesive spray that works really well on all types of surfaces.  The only downside is if you need to move the item from the wall it leaves a residue behind.  If the surface is smooth and easily cleanable not a problem to remove the residue, but if you have another type of surface (cork I imagine?) no way to clean it.

I use those 3M command hooks, they also make plastic document pockets if you need to hang a sheet.

 

For bigger posters, I use double sided tape.

We've attached some laminated signs to the wall with screws.

Have you tried magnetic tape? The stuff we have here is really sticky on the side for placing on the poster and the magnet is strong enough to withstand vigorous cleaning of the walls. I'm sure there are varying qualities of the type of product but the stuff have is really good

We purchased cheap, clip frame type plastic poster frames from McMaster Carr and permanently fastened them in the areas we need them. They're soft plastic with a clear, cleanable cover. you can replace the posters any time you want / need or leave them indefinitely.

we have a bulletin board in the break room and that is where i hang all of mines. 

 

when there is something i need the employees to know i usually have a meeting with them and i will pass out a copy of the meeting, have them sign off that they where in the meeting and that they receive documentation that way i do not have to hang up a lot of documents in the bulletin board. 

 

what type of posters are you trying to hang up? maybe give them a training on what the posters are about and hang them in the breakroom

 

hope this gives you ideas.
