    Speakers to share stories of workplace accidents

    Speakers to share stories of workplace accidents

    Visitors to the this year’s Safety & Health Expo will be able to hear first-hand accounts of the life-changing effects that accidents at work can have on employees and their relatives.

    The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has lined up a series of talks to be given by three people whose lives have been shattered by workplace accidents.

    The first will be given by Jason Anker, who was paralysed from the waist down after falling from a ladder in a construction site accident 23 years ago.

    Mr Anker was made an MBE last year for his work to raise awareness of health and safety issues.

    On day two of the Expo, former builder Paul Blanchard will share the story of how falling from height while repairing a barn roof left him with life-changing injuries.

    The final talk in the series will see Jennifer Deeney telling visitors about how her life has been affected by an accident at a London construction site that claimed the life of her 25-year-old husband, Kieron, only three months after the couple got married.

    RoSPA has organised the talks as part of its drive to get people to share their experiences in the hope that it will help prevent similar workplace accidents in the future.

    Head of awards and events, Julia Small, says while health and safety professionals can “talk all day” about the importance of keeping workplaces safe, that message can be driven home much more effectively by those with first-hand experience of accidents and the impact they can have.

    All three talks will be staged at RoSPA’s stand at the Safety & Health Expo – which runs at Excel London for three days from June 21 – and begin at 1pm.
