Jason Anker raises awareness at Lords

Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) played host to motivational and behavioural safety speaker Jason Anker at Lord’s Cricket Ground earlier this week, raising awareness about the importance of health and safety at work.

Jason, who was involved in a major accident on a building site, discussed the importance of health and safety in a practical context particularly in relation to working at height.

Jason’s presentation ‘A Fall From Height’ addressed the physical and physiological effects of experiencing a major incident at work. These included its impact on his personal life, family, friends and finances.

He also discussed his abuse of alcohol and drugs, his struggle to get compensation and his commitment to making a difference in light of his experiences.

MCC, the owners of Lord’s Cricket Ground, hosted the presentation with a view to improving the health and safety practices and awareness amongst its staff and contractors.

Gary Poynter, MCC Health & Safety Advisor, said: “Jason was a fantastic speaker and provided a highly informative session that I know our staff and contractors have gained a lot from. We are always keen to raise awareness of health and safety issues, particularly in relation to working at a height, and Jason’s presentation certainly achieved that. As a result of this session, I am confident our staff and contractors will be encouraged to speak up if something appears unsafe.”
