Jason Daniels’ story – surviving an electric shock from overhead powerlines

Due to the Greater Brisbane area lockdown, we have postponed the film launch of Jason Daniels’ story – surviving an electric shock from overhead powerlines.

Our priority is to protect the health and safety of our staff and stakeholders. To prevent any potential risk to staff and participants, the launch will be rescheduled to Wednesday 5 May. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Thank you for your support of this event. We will send out further communications closer to the rescheduled date.

Jason Daniels’ story is a film about how quickly life changed for Jason’s family when the grain auger he was moving contacted an overhead powerline.

Jason was just 17 when the serious electric shock he received from the powerline gave him horrific injuries. Jason’s mother Di Daniels recalls the devastating phone call she received on the day it happened and the struggles they have faced throughout Jason’s recovery.

Jason and Di are sharing their experience in this raw and real film to raise awareness about having a safe system of work in place before starting work and urging employers to listen when young workers speak up with safety concerns. If you have any concerns, please email us at events@oir.qld.gov.au.
