A true story for your health and safety event
Is your health and safety program looking for a boost or a change of pace? Personal testimony and shared experience is the most powerful and effective way to change attitudes and perceptions about health and safety.
50+ speakers ready to share their personal story
Members of the Speakers Bureau are volunteers from across Canada who have been affected by a life-altering workplace injury, fatality, or are living with an occupational disease. Their presentations are moving and unforgettable. Here’s a sampling of speakers’ personal stories. Contact Threads of Life to find a speaker for your event: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A speaker shares her story of hope and healing after a workplace tragedy
Erin Pitruzzella’s husband was struck and killed by a dump truck while he was working for a paving company. Erin talks about how Leo’s death has affected her, and her two young children, now teenagers. She now shares her story as a Threads of Life speaker, to try to prevent further work-related tragedies.
