You are missing the mark slightly... the idea isn't just in the visual, it's in the headline. The line explains how this happened, and the tagline tells you the solution.

The message isn't just "be careful or you'll end up like this".

You may not like it, but you're not a blue collar worker on minimum wage under a strict foreman. This ad speaks to the target audience, and effectively so. This is responsible advertising.

Yeah. It seems completely pointless to run a campaign on the dangers of workplace accidents while showing the effects of workplace accidents. Which sensible person thought this up? Damn you! Damn you for not thinking of a solution involving plasticine bunnies or horses surfing! Damn you to hell!
