This sign, from the Kodak Australasia factory at Coburg, directed Kodak employees to the 'Wak Trak', a walking track created specifically for employees to keep them physically active and healthy. There is a day track of 2.3 kilometres and a night track (for factory shift workers) of 1.3 km. The sign warns users to keep to the established walking track and watch for traffic. Through the Wak Trak program, Kodak were investing in workplace health and safety and employee recreation.

This sign was taken from Building 9. It is part of the Kodak collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.

Kodak manufactured and distributed a wide range of photographic products to Australasia, such as film, paper, chemicals, cameras and miscellaneous equipment. Its client base included amateur and professional photographers, as well as specialist medical and graphic art professionals who used photography, x-ray and other imaging techniques.
