Injury Prevention Australia
Workplace injury prevention
This unique program demonstrates the potentially devastating consequences of unsafe work practices. The program has been developed and trialled in close consultation with the Industrial Foundation for Accident Prevention (IFAP) who have now included it as a component in their Certificate IV Safety Practitioner Course and their Health and Safety Representatives Course.
Road injury prevention
This award winning injury prevention program aims to reduce the number of road deaths and serious injuries throughout Australia. This program is aimed at young adults who are at pre-driver and novice-driver levels.
Youth injury prevention
This motivational program plays an important role in helping young people develop greater awareness about the negative consequences that alcohol use and particularly abuse can have on people’s lives. This program is aimed at young adults and year 11 and 12 students.
Aqua injury prevention
Australians love the water, whether it’s the beach, the pool or the local river. Unfortunately over half of all sport and leisure spinal cord injuries occur in or on the water and tragically almost all result in quadriplegia. This program is aimed at children in school years 6, 7, 8 and 9.

Injury prevention australia
Everyday someone in Australia suffers a spinal cord injury. While most Australians understand the importance of safety in the workplace, on the road and the water, very few people make it a priority in their life – until it’s too late.
PBF is committed to spinal cord injury prevention in Australia and has developed a range of inspirational injury prevention programs that aim to reduce the incidence of serious injury at work or play. Each interactive presentation offers participants a first-hand account of what it is like to experience and live with a spinal cord injury in Australia. Our speakers emphasise safe practices as well as the consequences of making unsafe choices. Often confronting and close to the heart, our speaker stories leave your audience with safety front of mind.
Our spinal cord injury prevention programs can be tailored for all demographics from school age children, through to teens and adults. We offer four unique injury prevention presentations.

Our injury prevention program speakers are inspiring individuals who have sustained a permanent injury; with many living full lives as a quadriplegic or paraplegic member of the community. Through our speakers’ personal stories, PBF is able to build greater awareness of the risks of spinal cord injury in Australia and as well as encourage safer workplaces and support better decision-making.
During our youth, road, aqua and workplace prevention programs, our speakers share personal accounts of the challenges of life before injury, decisions made leading up to the injury and the impact their injury has had on their life and the lives around them.
