Safety IS personal – An employer’s story

Mike is just a regular bloke.

Meet Mike Honeyman from Arctic Arrow Powerline Group. Mike is not a big CEO from a large company. 

In 2008 after two years as an Engineering Technician, he was given the opportunity to buy into the company that he worked for and did so gladly, believing that this was going to be a great opportunity for him and his family. He set about producing the company's Occupational Health and Safety Program and was very proud of what he had achieved.

But what happened to Mike when one of his employees suffered an injury is a glaring example of how easy it is to think you are doing all you can but in fact are actually missing some of the most basic and vital requirements.

Listen to Mike's story and then reflect on your own.
