Outdoor exhibition of posters dedicated to safety at work


Outdoor exhibition of posters dedicated to safety at work.

From 15 to 30 September 2016 an exhibition of posters dedicated to health and safety of man in the working environment was presented in Poland in front of the Warsaw University building at Krakowskie Przedmieście 30/32. The presentation  was aimed at supporting measures to improve working conditions and promoting a safety culture among wider public.


"Occupational safety posters created by professional artists stir up the imagination, sometimes entertain, always make us think. They make people aware of the fact that safety cannot be superficial. They point out that we have the right to a safe, non-injurious job, but also that security depends very much on us” - said Danuta Koradecka, Director of CIOP-PIB.
The sixty posters presented at the exhibition were the results of subsequent editions, organized for 20 years by the Central Institute for Labor Protection - National Research Institute. The competition is co-organised with Academies of Fine Arts  in Cracow, Warsaw and Lodz. The participants are artists, professors and students of artistic universities in Poland and abroad.
The outdoor exhibition was under the patronage of the Minister of Family, Labor and Social Policy, Chief Labor Inspector and Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
The sponsors of the exhibition were Eko-Cykl Organizacja Odzysku Opakowań S.A. (Organization of Packaging Recycling) and M&M Consulting.

The Occupational Safety Poster Competition has been organised by the Central Institute for Labour Protection – National Research Institute since 1997. The purpose of the competition is to obtain posters promoting the issues of occupational safety and health protection of man in the working environment.
