In The Netherlands you are allowed to wear clogs as safety shoes. I've told you that before, and it's no joke.
Yes sirree it is, n1w! this must have been a pretty cool sign back in the day. The background of the sign is a view of the dry dock and harbor, and the guy is raised up on wooden gears - so I wonder if he'd dance up and down in pain.
And Norrel - you even showed us a cool photo of them in use working on the railroad! (along with a shot of them protecting your feet from wayward beer bottles, too;) ) LOL, if we were allowed wooden safety shoes here, the sign could say 'It shouldn't happen to your dogs - wear your clogs! ' ('Dog' is an old idiom for foot.) I get by on job sites wearing hiking boots - wooden shoes would be a good alternate - I don't like shoes that have to be laced, lol. (how lazy can I get?)
