Soviet Safety Posters Were Terrifying And Slightly Hilarious

Working in any hazardous factory isn't a treat, but at least you aren't met with these horrifying posters, which make it seem like you could be impaled or electrocuted at any moment. That hair-in-drill one looks like it REALLY HURTS.

Of course, work safety is serious business, and I'd rather be freaked out by a poster than get ground into a puddle of mush by a Soviet pneumatic press. The designs themselves are also pretty wonderful - stuff now found on museum walls instead of (blood-spattered?) Russian factories. [English Russia via BuzzFeed]
