Posters

Construction


This innovative series of 12 graphic posters was created to reach a diverse audience on a range of high risk construction safety issues, using images instead of words to identify hazards and illustrate safe work practices. Each poster conveys a specific safety message—at a glance—to workers of all ages, particularly those whose first language is not English.

These posters can be used as part of a worker orientation session, toolbox talk, or safety meeting; or they can be posted in a prominent place on your construction site as an interesting way to communicate safe work practices.

Workplace safety series

The 12 posters below were created to give joint health and safety committees, administrators, educators, and support staff an overview of key workplace safety issues in the education sector.

Each poster also features links to relevant sections of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation, the Workers Compensation Act, and WorkSafeBC publications.

The posters can be used in worker orientation and in safety meetings, and they can be posted as an innovative way to promote safety awareness.

The posters were created in consultation with the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, and the Canadian Union of Public Employees.
