Safety Awareness Presentation

A Fall From Height Story



Page 6



I just wanted to express my thanks to Gary and DSL for the presentation given by Gary at the GCSA yesterday. I thought the presentation was excellent and delivered with passion and professionalism by Gary. I can’t begin to imagine how Gary feels when he has to re-live those events but I admire his bravery in wanting to tell his story so that others may be spared the pain and suffering that Gary and his family went through.

Hi Gary, Just to let you know the feedback from your presentation has been very positive. Thanks.

Bill Price – CIIU Project


Many thanks Gary - can't be easy reliving your story in front of people - but thanks for stepping up and making a real difference.

Gordon Milne – Operations Director, INEOS Grangemouth


Just a note to say thank you for taking the time out to deliver your presentation at the 4 leadership sessions carried out over the past two days and for sharing your experience. We have had a lot of great feedback from your presentation and just wish to say thank you it was greatly appreciated.

Linda Davis – O&P HSE Advisor, INEOS Grangemouth


Many thanks for allowing Gary time away from his normal duties to deliver his story. Very poignant and if this doesn’t change behaviours then I’m afraid nothing will. Gary carried out two presentations, one to DSL and one to ExxonMobil.
The feedback already received is tremendous and all want to thank Gary for his time and to wish him all the very best for the future. Gary’s story will have a lasting effect I am sure and this was reflected in the silence in the room at the end of Gary’s story the impact of which was felt by all.

Goes without saying really that the story is so powerful it should be run throughout our business and down to shop floor level because that is in the main where behaviours need to change. Once again Gary, thanks very much for delivering your story which in doing so will make a difference.

Very often ‘safety’ is seen as dull and boring and just something that floats around to prevent people having a fun. I will admit that, until Tuesday, I thought the very same. It was then that safety took on a whole new meaning.
The presentation given by Gary was nothing less than amazing and that’s not a word I use lightly. However, as I sat there in a room full of men and choked back tears, I became aware that my opinion had changed. Safety and the assessing of potential hazards is no longer ‘uncool’ or ‘daft’ it simply makes sense.

I cannot explain just how much the presentation has changed my life, seriously. I told my friends and family about it. I told people I met in shops about it. I even wrote about it. Because of Gary I will no longer trust my life, or anyone else’s to fate, we are all worth more than that.

Hi Gary, I would just like to send my heartfelt wishes to you and commend your bravery for the delivery of the Safety Awareness Talk today. It is by far the most captivating and sad safety awareness talk I’ve ever sat through and the whole room hung on your every word. I think anybody who cares about safety could see all the pitfalls but sod’s law still happens and they are called accidents. I would like to thank you for sharing your story with me, and wish you and your family all the good luck in the world.
