Nice man with long stick will retrieve hat

This picture that I came across at shows that Japan is truly a civilized country. They actually put up a sign to reassure people that if they lose their hat a nice man will come along and retrieve it for them. At least, that's what I think the sign is trying to convey.

A Japanese-speaking friend tells me that these signs are common at subway and elevated train stations in Japan. It says "If you drop something onto the tracks, don't try to retrieve it yourself. An attendant will retrieve it for you."
