Although there’s often a theme in the media about “health & safety gone mad” the concern for people’s welfare, especially in the workplace, is not a recent thing – although, without a doubt, conditions are far safer now than for previous generations. This recently acquired LMS accident prevention booklet from 1924 shows rail workers how to prevent accidents with good practice working, and gives us the shocking statistics of the day – 200 railway workers killed and almost 3000 injured in 1922. That’s 4 deaths & 57 injuries a week! Just on the railways!
