“Health and Safety?? Pictures”
In a recent poll 25% of our readers said they would like to see more safety related images on this site. 55% said they would like to see “funny” or “stupid” safety pictures. A reader recently brought these “health and safety” pictures to our attention. We are not promoting or condoning the unusual way that women, safety or dogs are portrayed in these photographs – just bringing them to your attention. Nor are we saying they are either “funny” or “stupid” – just “different”. There are bound to be mixed feelings and some controversy about these photos and we don’t intend to make any comments about them – you be the judge. They are a bit of fun and may raise some awareness for health and safety in certain situations, where more traditional methods have failed to get attention, 350 models auditioned to take part and the proceeds went to a good cause (in the same way as other “sexy” calendars have raised funds for charity). We would love to see your comments.
Background: In 2007 and 2008 a series of calendars featuring greyhounds were produced. The series included a calendar with a health and safety theme. These calendars were produced to raise awareness for the serious plight of retired greyhounds and all proceeds went to a greyhound rescue organisation. The calendars were described as: “Greyhounds – Sexy & Safety’ – a stunning and superior quality greyhound calendar with a difference for the lad’s bedroom, study and in garages, factories and workshops…… original photographs taken by Stuart Stott using a ‘Health and Safety’ theme.” Website: http://www.ourgreyhounds.co.uk/index.htm – the calendars have now been taken down?
The calendar is described in the press release as: “somewhat controversial safety calendar which features scantily clad models in a series of “accidents waiting to happen”. The Greyhounds are wisely pointing out the hazards.”
You can see the whole collection from both calendars here (large size prints can be ordered!): Website: http://www.ourgreyhounds.co.uk/index.htm – the calendars have now been taken down?
