Creative work safety contests are somewhat rare but they can be a great way to get kids and young people thinking about workplace safety early. We were happy to see that this year's winners in the Safety@Work Creative Awards for digital animation and poster design were recently announced.
Safety@Work Creative Awards is sponsored by the Workplace Safety and Health Council and Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd in collaboration with Ministry of Manpower. The awards are designed to showcases local students' creative talents in advocating the importance of safety at the workplace. The competition was open to all full-time students enrolled in tertiary institutes in Singapore, including ITEs, polytechnics, universities, as well as art academies, colleges and institutes. This year, there was a specific focus on fall prevention, which students could interpret as falls from heights or falling objects.
Here are the winning safety posters for 2008. They are very clever, and available for downloading. And be sure to scroll down the page to see winners from past years.
