Safety & Access to host Networking Day at Humber Training Centre

CATCH, Stallingborough – Sept 27th 
Start time 09.30 – 14.00

The day features interesting and stimulating input from many speakers including a legal update from H&S legal expert Gary Lewis and leading industry stakeholders including CISRS/NASC. 

Also featured is a moving account by Paul Blanchard on how an accident can change everything. Paul Blanchard works as a motivational and behavioural safety speaker. Having been in a major accident falling from height several years ago while fixing a roof at a farm, Paul speaks on the emotional perspective of why Health and Safety is not just about ticking boxes.

Paul's story is really about the realisation that his life had changed, and having the determination to adapt to the new direction in life and trying to inspire others. Paul, broke his back, 18 ribs and suffered severe head injuries and a punctured lung. He was in an induced coma for three months and in hospital for six months. He now needs a wheelchair after being left paralysed from the chest down.

His story of his life before the accident, the day of the accident, the time spent in hospital and learning about the injuries and new way of life. His struggle with life since his accident is an honest and sometimes graphic account of the devastation the accident has had on Paul, his family (wife Jenny and 2 grown-up children and grandchild), friends and workmates. Paul will be speaking at our networking day on the 27th September at CATCH near Grimsby.

There will also be trade stands, demonstrations and incentives along with lunch!
