Dylan worked as a Solid Fuel Heating Engineer for a small firm who specialised in Chimney work and Roofing where most of his work was at height. In June 2011 he was deployed to service a chimney. While standing on the chimney stack it collapsed and Dylan fell from 33 feet, landing on a brick wall and sustaining severe multiple injuries.
Dylan has the opportunity to tell his profoundly sad story from the heart with the aim of preventing these kinds of incidents happening to others.
"I was at the Civic Centre yesterday afternoon and had the pleasure of listening to your talk. I was the first one to get up and shake your hand. I was emotionally touched by your story and it really hit home, I think all of our fitters and staff would really benefit from your talk."
"It was good to meet you today at the Willmott Dixon site. Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm sure you will have hit a chord with some of the guys and as you said if it avoids just one having an accident that's great."
"I can't thank you enough for the fantastic motivation speech you delivered at our Southampton project to our site operatives and staff.
I have had some great feedback from some of those who have listened to your personal story and how this has influenced their right to be safe at work and to go home to their love ones."
