Description:

Work safety poster in Socialist Realist style. The text warns workers to use the safety goggles and at the bottom it says to keep the safety instructions. In Socialist times these kind of safety posters were very common. The image shows a man during work wearing the proper equipments, including the goggles. On the sides three possible sources of danger are listed. The top one tells to pay attention to the cable, because if it gets damages it can cause serious electric shock. Below it workers are told to check the grounding mat on a monthly basis. The third and last one shows how to put the instrument down when one is finished with work. The picture also shows the wrong way, and explains that it is not the right way because the tool might break when placed like that. 

This design was often applied on work safety posters. Some examples are: Work according to safety instructions, Observe the safety regulations or Overtaking is dangerous and prohibited. All of these pieces show how to act properly at a workplace and besides list some examples of the possible dangers if someone doesn't do according to the ordinance.
