11 Wonderfully Violent Soviet Work Safety Posters

In Soviet Russia, machines worked you. With translations.

1.

Translation: “Beware of buffers”
I don’t want to see the next frame of this accident.

2.

Translation: “Hide your hair”

3.

Translation: “Do not open the lid of the thresher until the machine comes to a full stop”
Yeah, I think I’ll pass on the thresher job.

4.

Translation: “Do not remove belt drive with your foot”
This one seems like common sense.

5.

Translation: “Do not walk under the transmission shaft”
He’s about to become a human pretzel.

6.

Translation: “Do not leave anything loose on the scaffold”
Seems to be an overly bloody representation of the accident.

7.

Translation: “I was drunk at work!”
Now, I am drunk at home.

8.

Translation (loose): “Hey, scatterbrain, don’t cripple your friends!”

9.

Translation: “Be careful with pitchforks”
The pitchforkee is pretty calm, under the circumstances.

10.

Translation: “Do not check for electricity with your fingers”
But we all do it.

11.

Translation: “Guard the end of a machine shaft”
Back to “0” days since our last accident.

All posters via English Russia.
Thanks to my Russian friend Ani for the translations.
