69 James Wood "Woody The Safety Bloke"

You may have had Woody come to your site and talk to your crew, or perhaps have seen his videos on you tube as he talks about safety and our choices? “The impact of hearing James Wood speak is something that will stay with you for a long time.” James Wood is an internationally recognised award-winning Safety Speaker. Listen in as we uncover his mining story and how he ended up in a wheelchair because of choices he made at work. You will get a lot from this convo, not just for his thoughts on mining life, safety culture and choices we make, but because he’s a great bloke, and we have a lot of fun in between the serious side of his message.
