Michael and Lee Garrels
“We want to prevent workplace tragedies and support and give a voice to those affected.”
Michael and Lee Garrels’ son Jason was electrocuted at a construction site in Clermont in 2012. Jason had only been working in his job for nine days.
Jason was an easy-going, fun-loving, 20-year-old. His death has had a serious impact on his parents, two sisters, brother, friends and workmates.
Michael and Lee joined the Consultative committee for work related fatalities and serious incidents to empower and give other people affected by a workplace tragedy a voice and help them through the path to reach the right government departments.
