[Ep #237] The life, safety & well being of people are sacred

Topic: The life, safety & well being of people are sacred

My guest today says, “The life, safety & well being of people are not collateral. They are sacred.”

Joining me today is Ramsina Lee.

Ramsina is an author & change agent. Ramsina has written a creative non-fiction book narrating the story of some of the workers and families whose lives were tragically changed as a result of an explosion at the Esso gas plant in Longford, Victoria on 25 September 1998. Ramsina aims to give a voice to the voiceless entangled in a system that is focused predominantly on the legal outcomes of such events. The book launch is on the 20th Commemoration in Sale Victoria.

On today’s show Ramsina is going to share:

  • Raise awareness of issues affecting the life, safety & wellbeing of people at work and how they can protect themselves and others.
  • Understand that each person’s life matters. Ramsina started the MY Life Matters Movement to enhance a positive self-perception in people.
  • My life is not just about me. It’s about contributing in any way I am gifted to so that the lives and quality of life for others is enhanced.

About Ramsina Lee

I have written a creative non-fiction book narrating the story of some of the workers and families whose lives were tragically changed as a result of an explosion at the Esso gas plant in Longford, Victoria on 25 September 1998. Two workers were killed and others were physically, mentally and emotionally scarred. I interviewed the workers in 1999 and recently to compose the story. After the explosion, a Royal Commission was established, where Esso blamed its workers for the explosion. The Commission found that Esso was at fault. My reason for self-funding the project and publishing my book to tell the story is twofold. First and foremost, it is to give voice to the voiceless entangled in a system that is focused predominantly on the legal outcomes of such events. Secondly, it is to inspire collegial and collaborative relations in workplaces by bringing the human element of such circumstances into the focus of decision makers in organisations. My book launch is on 20th Commemoration in Sale Victoria – love some media coverage please 🙂 Kind regards, Ramsina Lee 0411 282 350
