5 Seconds
Jason openly talks about his workplace accident and the effect this had on himself, family, friends and work colleagues. He now explores and discusses why he made that decision on the day of his accident and now realises his own health and wellbeing played a big part in that decision.

Lessons include - Don’t Walk by. Listen to the voice in your head. Speak up. 5 Seconds. Make an individual commitment to safety.

It's not about the fall, it's about the bounce
Jason delivers a Well-being talk on the topic of resilience about coping with trauma, stress and mental health issues. This is no longer a presentation about what he can't do but what he can do and focuses on all his achievements and positive things in his life now. An uplifting positive presentation where Jason asks himself after 25 years in a wheelchair 'do I still wish I hadn't had my accident?'

Sean Toon Jason's Friend & Speaker ROSPA Guardian Angel 2017

Sean speaks alongside Jason's 5 Second presentation about the impact Jason's accident has had on him, his family and friends.

This provides a powerful and effective angle on Jason 'story in the live presentations that comes very unexpected to the delegates watching and highlights how many people are actually affected in workplace accidents.

Reaching the Brink
This is a health and wellbeing talk where Sean discusses how he bottled up problems in his personal life from a childhood trauma. In his early twenties a series of events nearly took him to the brink, he found a way of coping and it's only in recent years he has found a way to deal with problems head on which has helped him and his family. When this happened to Sean there was no one to speak up to and it is now Sean's goal to encourage people to speak up and listen.

Paul Blanchard Speaker ROSPA Arch Angel 2015

Life After An Accident
Paul works as a motivational & behavioural safety speaker. Having been in a major accident falling from height several years ago fixing a roof at a farm, Paul speaks on the emotional perspective of why Health and Safety is not just about ticking boxes.

The empowerment of staff to feel the responsibility for both their own safety and that of their co-workers does not come from a Health and Safety lecture. With Paul’s story to the same group, he brings a real purpose to the subject. Rather than just going through the motions of H&S conformity, the audience is reached through empathy with someone who has felt the full effect of an industrial accident.

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.

Lisa Ramos Profile Photograph

Lisa Ramos Speaker

Lisa Ramos was involved in a forklift accident at work, in 2006 and as a result of this, is now an above knee amputee. She had been working alongside her husband Dave for several years. The day of Lisa’s accident was also their son Kieran’s 13th birthday and although Dave wasn’t on shift, he did witness the aftermath and travelled alongside her, in the ambulance. They offer a unique alternative to raising awareness of health & safety issues within the workplace, with their frank and honest account of her rehabilitation, and the long-term struggles that are part and parcel of adjusting to life, as a disabled person. Whilst they came to terms with what happened many years ago, the change in Lisa's behaviour has had a lasting impact on their son Kieran.
