It is wrong to judge the past by modern standards. But when we stumbled across this 40-year old health and safety advisory video from Caterpillar, we just couldn’t resist looking at it through the lens of today.

Despite the lack of personal protective equipment, some questionable acting and an even more questionable soundtrack, much of the video holds up to scrutiny and is a testament to Caterpillar’s foresight.
