Gary Gallagher | A Fall From Height Story
Safety Awareness Presentation


On the 10th of July 1996 at the age of twenty, Gary Gallagher was involved in a fall from height that almost killed him and turned his life upside down.

His Safety Awareness Presentation tells the story.

Gary's Safety Awareness Presentation started out as a ‘Return to Work Re-focus on Safety Message’ in January 2014, where it was presented for the first time. It was then changed to ‘The Importance of Risk Assessment’ by Gary’s employers, as further backup to a half day of training to their Supervision.

Although the central story of Gary’s fall from height remains the same, the presentation can be tailored to suit the message the client wants to deliver to their personnel.

The presentation can be altered easily to suit the obvious topic of working safely at height, letting the audience see the stark reality of what a fall means, not only to the individual but also his family and others involved.
