Workplace Health and Safety Queensland (WHSQ) will launch its new film “In it for the long haul: The Tiffany Ward story” on Friday the 21st September. The launch will be at the WHS Symposium to launch Safe Work Week 2012.
Tiffany was just 18 years old when both of her arms were caught in a factory auger whilst she was cleaning it. It took emergency crews over 40 minutes to free Tiffany and as a result she almost lost her life and has she has been left with permanent injuries.
According to Tiffany, “I wanted to do this film to warn people that this does happen in a workplace. It doesn’t only just happen to middle-aged men, it can happen to anybody,” she said.
“I don’t want any family, or any husband or wife or any kids, friends and family to have to go through what Matt and my family have been through.”
WHSQ says that their film contains a message that is inspirational for workers in all types of industries, injury can happen to anyone.
