In this episode, Mary Conquest speaks with Jason Anker, an author, motivational speaker and consultant who was made a Member of the British Empire in 2015 for his contributions to the world of health and safety.

Jason was paralyzed from the waist down due to an avoidable accident on a construction site in 1993 when he was just 24 years old. He only started speaking about this devastating incident in 2009 and now openly shares his experiences to show EHS professionals how important wellbeing is to workplace safety.

Jason is convinced he would have made different decisions leading up to his accident if he was in better mental shape - that would have kept him safe. He discusses how organizations can focus more on common wellbeing issues and create environments that break the stigma of mental health - where it’s ok to speak up.

In this inspiring interview, Jason explains what individuals and organizations can do to improve wellbeing. He believes safety is a byproduct of a positive working environment and that people should always come before rules and regulations.
