Injury prevention - teamsafe

Teamsafe is a workplace safety program with a real difference. Teamsafe is Spinal Cord Injuries Australia’s (SCIA) workplace safety and injury prevention program designed to elevate your team's awareness of safety in the workplace and remind of the dangers of complacency.

Teamsafe offers a presentation with a difference; all presenters are SCIA ambassadors who have themselves sustained a spinal cord injury. They know first-hand the real story of why safety is important and deliver this message to enhance your Occupational Health and Safety programs. Each presentation is tailored to meet your business needs and compliment your existing programs.

Teamsafe helped the Bulk Water Alliance (BWA) win the ExxonMobil Award for Excellence in Occupational Health and Safety in 2008. Teamsafe assisted BWA with building a risk management system that saw BWA achieve 450,000 hours worked without lost time or medical treatment required.

David was working as a builder when he fell from a partly constructed roof aged 27. At the time David loved surfing, playing soccer, tennis and golf and socialising with friends. As a result of his accident, David damaged the vertebrae in his neck at C6.

David’s accident sparked a major review of building site safety which prompted new regulations covering scaffolding, harnesses and roof railings./C7 – leaving him with quadriplegia.
