Alan Newey is Australia’s first Bionic Man, a survivor of a workplace accident and the director of Chat Safety. Having lost his right dominant arm to a conveyor belt accident, and spent many years in recovery and rehabilitation, he now presents to groups on the effects of his workplace accident and the impact on him and his family.
Alan speaks from the point of view of an injured worker and gives a real insight into what happens to you during and after such a life-changing experience.
Alan is extremely confronting on the issues and effects of a workplace accident, and his presentation not only addresses the sequence of events leading up to his accident, the flow on affect, but the issues surrounding OHS today and how “OHS is not just another thing I have to do.
Alan Newey has a Diploma of Occupational Health & Safety together with a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
