11 Dutch Safety Signs That Are Really Creepy (And Funny)

The Netherlands

How do you best inform the public about general safety precautions and the dangers of work place injuries? The Dutch combined two essential cultural traits: Dutch directness and pragmatism, et voila: very creepy (and now hilarious) Dutch Safety Posters! Maybe they should bring these back for modern disorders: e.g. bad spelling mistakes in emails; overusing of LOL; sharing hoax stories and cat photos on Facebook…etc. Wouldn’t the world be a better place? 😉
