We are excited to have Gary Norland, renowned safety speaker, kick off the workshop with the general session keynote.
The impact of an injury "What are you risking"? Your Life... Have you considered your family, coworkers, community? There is a ripple effect!
Gary's message and story is straight from the heart and he tells it like it is. He will share his real life safety experience about being electrocuted by 200 amps, 12,500 volts. Fire and electricity shot out of his body in fifteen places resulting in electrical burns over 37% of his body. He has had so many surgeries that he has lost count, well over fifty.
Gary's mission is to explain the reality of life after an accident and the importance of taking safety seriously. Life as Gary knew it changed in less than a second when he suffered an injury that could have been prevented. Gary explains how his choice to avoid the use of proper safety equipment and rushing the clock cost him his independence. His vivid photos leave nothing to the imagination of the reality of an injury. The audience will leave impacted by his story and will make intentional changes to their safety awareness.
Gary always says "This is REALITY! IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU!!!"
