Staff from across the Garenne Construction Group companies attended a talk by Jason Anker MBE on the 30th and 31st October. The talks, held in Jersey and Guernsey were arranged to reiterate the Health and Safety message across the Group.
Jason was paralysed from the waist down after having a potentially avoidable accident 25 years ago. His personal account reflected on how his accident has affected his life, relationships, family, friends and work colleagues.
His powerful message got across to the 200 strong audience in both Islands that safety is everyone’s responsibility and if something doesn’t look right or feel right, you have to say so rather than continue.
A huge thank you to Jason for the total honesty in relating his story which had a strong but positive effect on all the attendees.
