Safety Speaker – Michelle Rath
Michelle Rath offers workplaces something different!
When a worker gets hurt or killed doing their job the immediate focus is on the person that it happens to!
Have you ever thought about that person’s family or friends?
Alex is Michelle’s youngest son, he was working as a refrigeration & air conditioning apprentice when he was killed in a workplace accident.
Michelle Rath explains that the worst days are days when Alex SHOULD be there, birthdays, family times.
“January is a month I fear. Knowing we celebrate his birthday on the 16th and he is not here for me to hug. January 19th is the day we lost Alex & our world changed. Everybody respects just how hard this is for me as this used to be my birthday as well…Not any more! January 29th is the day we farewelled Alex so another day we struggle through!…..”
“January is just soul destroying & devastating….”
Then there are the “Triggers” that make you think of how much you miss them, like a favourite song or piece of music or you see a car like the one they used to drive!
