Postal Service Commemorates Utter Lack of PPE!

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!

Lockout/Tagout?  Fugetaboutit!

Fall Protection?  That’s for people who plan to fall!

Hardhats?  They just mess up our hair!

Ergonomics?   I like back pain.
