Forever young - Tim's story

Tim was a second year electrical apprentice when he was involved in a fatal incident.

What was meant to be a routine electrical task, ultimately cost him his life. As a young worker at only 17 years of age, Tim didn''t have the experience and skills to do this job by himself without adequate supervision and guidance.

Forever young – Tim's story is told by Bill Martin, Tim's father who now lives with the consequences of a terrible and unnecessary workplace incident.

Bill can visit your workplace to share his story. Complete the online form and we'll be in touch.
