     I'm a safety manager for a small chemical company in Utah.
     Might I suggest that you take the photos that you desire with a 
digital camera and present
    them to whom ever you wish; thus, they get what they get. Also, you 
can use your
    own photos in power point presentations for lab safety training. 
I've been doing this for years.
    My chemists like receiving training with actual photos of their 
working environment.
