Moranbah electrical industry work health and safety forum

Join us for a FREE work health and safety forum in Moranbah.

Hear from Safety Advocate Dan Kennedy, who shares his family’s heartbreak after their son’s preventable death while working as an electrical apprentice in the ceiling space of a Cairns school. Dan encourages workers to voice their concerns if they see something that is unsafe, and to always turn the power off before working in a ceiling space.
