Author Charles Dickens was famous for his depictions of 19th Century life and the effects of the Industrial Revolution on the working class. Dickens himself had a difficult life, forced into a workhouse pasting labels on shoe polish at age 12 after his father went to debtors’ prison.

In this post, we take a look at several iconic Dickens stories, mining them for some truly Victorian quality and safety insights.
