With over 4,000 victims a year, choking is a serious hazard in restaurants. According to govdocs.com, a handful of states require food service establishments to display a choking poster to illustrate how to handle a choking emergency.

We love the way these artists have drawn attention to the importance of reacting appropriately in a choking emergency while making the educated guide a little more entertaining. Here are some of the most unique choking posters we could find on the internet.

Graphic designer Grey Jay compared dance steps to the steps of the Heimlich maneuver in this poster designed for Malbec and Tango House:

Jay channels an alternative vibe in this choking poster he designed for another New York Restaurant, The Beagle:

Some designers borrow from popular television shows to demonstrate the proper reaction to a choking incident.

Like this poster Fox handed out at the 2012 Comic Con to promote their popular show Big Bob’s Burgers:

Or this Simpsons themed choking poster:

Some posters are purely artistic, like this mock poster design by illustrator Luke Howard:

And others mix education with art and humor, as Lara Antal did in this choking poster that resembles a comic strip:

Or this one featuring Bea Arthur and unicorns that kind of leaves us speechless:

We love these fun twists on the standard choking hazard poster. All jokes aside though, choking is a serious hazard and a leading cause of death in the United States. Whether your state requires it or not, we recommend keeping a choking poster prominently displayed in your foodservice establishment to help prevent accidents.
