Safety Hazards in Industrial Environments 2 of 3

Designed to touch upon core themes underlying workplace safety, these whimsical (but also serious) "Mine of Death" illustrations are intended to promote a culture of safety that extends not just to the individual workers, but to their interactions with coworkers, interactions with their environment, and policies and procedures that are necessary to work safely as a team in a challenging environment. The chaotic images are intentionally in contrast to the features of a workplace that are engineered to remove or suppress chaos.
