It was sexier when Veronica Lake did it:

I like the Canadian accident prevention PSA commercials myself.

Actually I knew a guy who was standing on the coupler as the train was backing to attach a car.  He slipped.  The train did a below the knee amputation.  Apparently took them half an hour to get him disentangled.

That exact scenario is kind of silly but it's a dangerous place to be between two cars in a switching yard.

And that's how the Soviets invented the flux capacitor.

These are good.  All these accidents still happen frequently at workplaces today.  Between young cocky assholes who are too cool for the rules and old complacent assholes who have "always done it that way", there are more than enough workers risking horrible death or dismemberment.

The sad thing?  I doubt even these graphic depictions worked very well.

Yeah?  Well there was a REASON the sign said "long-haired freaky people need not apply".

I'll print some of these out at work for the прачечная девушки. Always a silly accident or 2 every season. Last year a girl opened a dryer door really fast and knocked the other girl out cold. How hard is it to wash towels?

Sorry, I've been to mill sites that regularly cut the locks if someone leaves one on and goes to home or to lunch.

I don't want to end up on this list

I read that as "milf sites".

It is pitch black, you are likely to be eaten by a grue.

While not work-related, I was with a female friend who was rappelling, and had started down without tying her hair back.  Yanked a nice hunk of hair out, but luckily no scalp.

At least forklift driving in Germany is still safe.

Was that directed by Sam Raimi or Peter Jackson?

I like them. I've always felt a good PSA was the equivalent of a good gut-punch.

Like this: Dive!

I think you're all missing the point:  Veronica Lake was hot.
