Description: 

The poster shows a worker after a shift working with dangerous substances (dust) and wearing personal protective equipment (PPE). The whole of his body is covered with dust and dirt, but his nose, mouth and eyes have been protected by the PPE. It shows how effective PPE is — lax handling of dangerous substances puts workers at risk.
