Michael Adamson was an experienced spark, who died on 4 August 2005 as the result of an electrical incident at work.  He was only 26 years old and was engaged to be married.

Like so many work-related deaths, it was an incident which could and should have been prevented.

Motivated by the need to stop this from happening to others, ‘Michael's Story’ is told by his sister Louise.  She talks through the catalogue of errors in health and safety management - any one of which would have been serious enough on its own – which accumulated to prove fatal.

A light lunch is provided for you at 12.30pm and the event will begin at 1.30pm  with a 15 minute refreshment break during the afternoon.
