Film: Duration in minutes

06.24 minutes


The film traces the career of Bernard Chadebec, graphic-designer at INRS for 40 years. Chadebec enables us to understand what a security poster is and gives us an insight into how the graphic-designer communicates messages through his artwork. The documentary situates his art in a social and artistic context. After having collected the testimonies of Chadebec as well as of specialists, the film director gives a portray of his artwork in four illustrated sequences. This first film sequence describes what a poster on security is and how Bernard Chadebec gets the prevention messages of the INRS across.


Beyond the description of a poster in public, the film stresses the fact that a poster aims at modifying the behaviour of the beholder. In the framework of prevention of occupational risks, this medium is perfectly adapted: a poster on safety can pass a message in the specific context of an occupational activity and thus reduce the risks of an accident or a disease that the employees of a company are exposed to.


In 2016, the film is presented to the visitors of the exposition dedicated to the piece of work of Bernard Chadebec at the Ecomuseum in Creusot-Montceau (France). This film was directed by Ludovic VIEUILLE.
