Dear Paul,

Please accept my sincere thanks for sharing your personal story with my team. Rest assured, I have received positive feedback from a variety of attenders who enjoyed the healthy mix of light hearted anecdotes and hard hitting facts of living life with the consequences of a major accident.
I include below a copy of an email which highlights the impact you and the timeout sessions had on a gentleman in the audience, It makes for a very good read.
Thank you again for sharing your story with me and my team.

Dear Alan and Neil,
I have just come off the phone from a catch-up call with Gordon Foster at Speedy services. The last part of our conversation was almost entirely dedicated to feedback on his recent invite to join and support your safety meeting in Huddersfield last week.
Gordon described the content and quality of the meeting, and the message and key speaker, as being second to none. He said it was one of the best meetings he has ever attended and wishes he could replicate the message within his own business as it was clear, concise, and perfectly targeted.
He added that he wished he had brought his HSE Director with him as he would of really benefitted from seeing something of this nature delievered at such a high standard. He went as far as to say that if we replicate this sort of forum across the business SRA will be second to none when it comes to safety. He would relish the opportunity to attend another such meeting and bring his HSE Director along to see the content for himself.

I think he was rather impressed.

With best regards,
Andy Kimberley
Logistics Process Manager, Construction


Hi Paul,

See below for some genuine feedback from our employees.

It was a very thought provoking and intimate presentaion, I felt that the audience really came to understand just how easily an oversight or lack of attention to safety can result in a life changing event. Paul also focused on the impact to family and friends which demonstrated how far reaching the consequences of an accident can be. I felt this really hit home with the entire audience. Paul is a very brave man and offers a unique insight into the importance of keeping safe.


This session really hit home how a small error can have such a huge impact on not only yourself but those around you. We have watched videos and read statements but by actually listening first hand to someome who has experienced what Paul has, it really did make you stop and think.


Paul told his story not trying to achieve a a hard hit shock, he just told his story. Everyone in the room was completely focussed because we could all relate to the circumstances of how his accident occurred. Listening to Paul fully brought home the effect on him, his family and friends; things I had never fully contemplated before. It is the only presentation I have been in that I can remember the full name of the presenter.


Great presentation really hit home the consequences of our actions and how complacency can set it.


Best wishes.

Dear Paul,


We want you to know how much we appreciate the time you spent with us at Sizewell 'A' on 17th & 18th September 2013 and how inspiring your story has been to everyone here on Site.

It was great to meet you over a pint or two on Monday evening, getting to know you, and learning more about how your injuries have not only affected your life, but your family's too.

We cannot thank you enough for the time you spent with us enlightening our staff of what you've been through and how they should "Be proud to be Safe".

Since your onsite presentations many people have spoken to me personally about how they have taken steps to revaluate their saferty at home and in the workplace.

The site Director has asked me to pass on his personal thanks for the time you spent with us and wish you the best of luck for the future. You are a true inspiration!

Yours sincerely

Head of Safety
