Ramazzini; Blog on work and health by Annet Lenderink


“Immagine no more injuries”

Nice post from an important health blog called the Pump Handle on a special version of John Lennon’ Immagine, that starts like this

Imagine no more injuries
Or ‘blame the worker’ schemes
No workers killed in explosions
Or mangled in machines
Imagine all the workers
Going home in one piece!

Imagine Health & Safety
Lyrics By Luis Vazquez, 2009, All Rights Reserved
Sung to the tune of Imagine, by John Lennon

Be safe in the lab, sing a song!

Working safely in a laboratory is important. It is stressed in a funny way in this video made by alumni of the University in Berkely, California USA.

A musical extravaganza on the importance and execution of laboratory safety. See more at http://www.TheSoundsOfScien…

Songs on working

The worker

Just for fun I’m collecting song lyrics on working. Today 10 songs on working and workers in general with links to sites with the complete song lyrics; 

1. Working Class Hero (John Lennon)
As soon as you’re born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be 

2. Working 9 to 5 (Dolly Parton)
Chorus: Workin’ 9 to 5,
What a way to make a livin’
Barely gettin’ by
It’s all takin’ and no givin’

3. Working Girls (10cc)
Working girls don’t stand a chance
Typing pools are full deadly fish
Office Romeos believe
Dictation is the statutory dish 

4. She works hard for the money (Donna Summer)
She works hard for the money
so hard for it honey
she works hard for the money
so you better treat her right.

5. Working man (Rush)
I get up at seven, yeah
And I go to work at nine
I got no time for livin
Yes, I’m workin all the time

6. Workingman’s Blues (Bob Dylan)
There’s an evening haze settling over town
Starlight by the edge of the creek
The buying power of the proletariat’s gone down
Money’s getting shallow and weak 

7. The Worker (Fischer-z)
Hated journey on the train
Always been the same
Looking out windows
Second class and second best (Oooooooh)
What a waste of time

8. Worker’s Song Lyrics (Dropkick Murphy’s)
CHORUS: We’re the first ones to starve the first ones to die
The first ones in line for that pie-in-the-sky
And always the last when the cream is shared out
For the worker is working when the fat cat’s about.

9. Work Hard (Depeche Mode)
You’ve got to work hard, you’ve got to work hard
If you want anything at all
You’ve got to work hard, you’ve got to work hard
If you want anything at all 

10 Working: the musical
Wikipedia on Working: Working is a musical with a book by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso, music by Schwartz, Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Mary Rodgers, and James Taylor, and lyrics by Schwartz, Carnelia, Grant, Taylor, and Susan Birkenhead. Based on the book of the same name by Studs Terkel, it chronicles a day in the life of twenty-six average American workers. Characters include an ironworker, a waitress, a stone mason, a trucker, a housewife, a UPS delivery man, a teacher, and a retiree. All of their monologues, in which they describe their daily routines and discuss their hopes and aspirations, are true stories derived from interviews with actual workers.

I;ll try to gather songs on specific types of work another time.
If you can come up with more, I’ll welcome suggestions!
