The Matthew Bowcott Story


7:27 Minuten


This video is a true story about a young worker’s injury and his road to recovery. Matthew was just 19 when he was badly injured in a restaurant kitchen. His personal story is a testament to every worker’s right to know the hazards, to speak up about safety concerns, and to refuse unsafe work.


As a worker you have the right to a safe workplace and the right to refuse unsafe work.


Matthew Bowcott's story of being severely injured at work has given him a new perspective on health and safety. He wants young workers to know that ignoring a gut feeling about safety on the job can have tragic consequences. After viewing Matthew's story, new and young workers should know that they have the right to a safe workplace and the willingness to say if they don't feel safe at work.
