Graphic designer Bernard Chadebec was an employee of the INRS (National Research and Safety Institute) throughout his professional life, between 1965 – 2005. At this French organisation for the prevention of occupational accidents, he realised more than 300 boldly coloured posters. Published in conjunction with the first monographic exhibition of Chadebec’s work at the Écomusée Creusot Montceau, the book includes an engaging essay by Camille Pageard detailing the history of accident awareness and prevention in the workplace, as well as the changing modes of discourse surrounding how safety messages are delivered, and why Chadebec is unique in this respect.
