In honor of Labor Day, the U.S. Postal Service put out a series of stamps commemorating America’s industrial workers, which is a good thing and something we should all support. Looking at the pictures, though, it is also a very graphic reminder of how far we have come in safety and how scary the workplace used to be. See if you agree:
Welding face shields? Who needs ’em!
Confined space controls in mines? Never!
Fall Protection? That’s for people who plan to fall!
Hardhats? They just mess up our hair!
Ergonomics? I like back pain.
