Dallas Adams delivers a raw and emotional presentation describing the impact a workplace accident can have on family, friends and work colleagues.
With his experience in the industry, he describes the tragic accidents of his only brother in 2004 in a mining accident and his father in 2017 who was struck by a pressurized water pipe while maintaining a water treatment plant on a major tunnelling project in Sydney.

All this described in the Dec/Jan 2017 digital edition on pages 10 and 11 of the tunnelling journal written by Tris Thomas where Dallas's story went Global.
