Health and safety at work is often viewed as a set of statistics and numbers, but what numbers make an accident? What numbers represent the cold reality of lives ruined by a workplace accident?

James Gorry was the owner of a successful construction company with 30 years experience in the industry. He worked for the same client safely for 18 years until one day he took a shortcut.

James fell 26 feet down from a factory roof on to the concrete floor below. His injuries included:

14 broken ribs
* Broken shoulder blades
* A fractured skull with resulting brain injuries
* Lungs half filled with blood
* Fractured vertebrae, one of which pierced his spinal column at T11

Waking up 3 weeks later, James was sadly paralysed for the rest of his life.



Now a highly sought after safety speaker, James has embarked on a mission to share his story in the hope that he can save other people and their families from the painful consequences he had to face.

In “Safety By Numbers” James Gorry shares his story with anyone open minded enough to realise that we never stop learning new ways to keep safe.
