The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents has discovered a host of vintage health and safety posters from the 50s, 60s and 70s in a warehouse.

Here, the society's history project manager, Janice Cave, describes the posters found and talks about what they tell us about changing attitudes to safety, and about wider social change in Britain.
