As I’m sure you’re aware you need to keep Health and Safety at the forefront of everyone’s mind 24-7. Health and Safety cartoons can illustrate
serious messages in a light hearted way. Most organisations primarily use the cartoons as posters, usually on a regular basis. In this way, employees are informed of ongoing safety issues. Consider safety cartoons via emails, training materials, Powerpoint presentations and calendars(They’re in front of them everyday of the year!)
Remember, save one accident and any cartoon you commission will have paid for itself a hundred fold.

Health and Safety Cartoon – Quarry/Construction site safety!

Here’s one of some health and safety cartoons I drew recently to highlight health and safety hazards within a quarry environment…

Quarrying is one of the most dangerous industries to work in, since the year 2000 over 3000 workers have suffered an injury and 24 of those being fatal.

If one of my health and safety cartoons helps cut out one of these the health and safety manager and myself would have done a worthwhile job!
