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

Register now to attend the launch of Jason Daniels’ story – surviving an electric shock from overhead powerlines, a new 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.

Register now to hear from Jason and Di, as well as Queensland’s Electrical Safety Office, Energy Queensland and AgForce Queensland.
