A range of workplace safety posters featuring characters from the television series, The Simpsons, will be on display at the Safety in Action show in Melbourne next week. The safety posters are part of the Safety Awareness, Focus and Education (SAFE) program designed to reduce workplace injuries by creating "inescapable messaging" where all components are wrapped around one single safety issue each month. Australian distributor Trudy Schipelliti of Work Safety Solutions says the program has been tested throughout the world and has proven to be a successful method of workplace safety education. The high-impact posters have instantly recognisable characters that break through cultural and language barriers, and strong graphics for the most at-risk safety demographic - young inexperienced employees.
