Chatting safety in Mareeba with Shane Webcke

Join football legend and Queensland Safety Ambassador Shane Webcke for a free breakfast and safety information session.

Hosted by the Electrical Safety Office and Mareeba Chamber of Commerce, the event is a chance to learn about:

  • Electrical safety in your home and business
  • The importance of safety switches on all circuits
  • What to do if you experience an electric shock or tingle
  • Using licensed electricians
  • Working near overhead powerlines and underground electric cables; and
  • Risks when purchasing electrical equipment.

You’ll also hear from Safety Advocate Dan Kennedy, who lost his son Dale when he was electrocuted while working in the ceiling space of a Cairns school. Dale was only 20 years old and close to finishing his electrical apprenticeship.
