I am available to come to your workplace and share my story in the hope of inspiring strong Health & Safety attitudes - I believe that this is the beginning of a healthy safety culture within all organisations. Below you will see points that I generally cover in my Health & Safety presentations although I am happy to customise a presentation to suit your organisations' individual requirements.
My upbringing/workplace history
Drawing reference to how my safety attitude was borne out of a early model of workplace safety standards (early 1980’s) and my reluctance towards change, even for the better, and also how my ego played its part in forming my decision making.
My 20 years plus experience in the Scaffolding industry, and how it influenced my attitude and ego in the days leading up to my accident

An account of my actions and thoughts leading up to my accident… my ‘Fall from grace’
