They are champions in their chosen sport who have overcome adversity and are now helping promote the safety of others. Be inspired and motivated by the stories of six athletes who are helping NSW workplaces through the WorkCover NSW Speakers Program. Through their inspirational stories of despair, courage, and triumph these athletes drive home a powerful message about the importance of: Working safe, thinking safe, and going home safe.
Drawing on their experience, the athletes spread a strong message about workplace safety, injury prevention and management and their personal road to recovery, return to work and success as world-class athletes. They are excellent examples of people who have returned to work and returned to life after a workplace incident with the support of their family, friends, employers, medical rehabilitation specialists, the Australian Paralympic Committee and WorkCover.
This program continues to be a major success in helping employers, workers, young people and the general public understand the significance of workplace safety and the physical, emotional, social, and financial costs of workplace injuries. 30 minutes.
