Gory Soviet Safety Posters

The idea behind socialism is to ensure that their blue collar workers were treated right. Whether that be in the form of decent living wages or safe working conditions. You can look no further than the Soviet Union, who even had the motto “Workers of the world, unite!” Obviously, the whole communism thing didn’t work out, since the USSR collapsed in 1991. However, thanks to the wonderful world of technology, specifically English Russia, those core beliefs have lived on. We just stumbled upon a series of safety posters from the former USSR. Not only are they graphic, gory, and awesome, they clearly get the point across. Be safe, or suffer a horrendous injury. Check ’em out!
