Men at Work Signs in Trinidad & Tobago
The present design comes as
a real surprise. After such a long British occupation I would
expect a UK-design (the man with the wellingtons and umbrella),
or, given the American mainland nearby, a new world diamond-shape design (USA or Peru).
But this is very western-European design of a worker surrounded by heaps within a red triangle (e.g. Austria, Belgium). They shouldn't economize too much on the tools though. The shaft of the spade is often clearly not up to the task.

One of them is evolving away from Europe and has developed a nice local appearance. The workman boasts magnificent detail: look at his head, the heaps, the shoes, the sand on his spade. But I think that he is still a boy and a bit too young on the job.
