Tell a story, save a life.
Personal stories have sticking power. For many of us, stories are easier to relate to – and recall – than statistics or data summaries. They bring the message home.
Personal stories have impact. They can change the way we view our work and influence decisions we make about taking risks.
Telling the Story Project features real-life experiences and personal accounts of families and individuals directly affected by injuries and close calls. The purpose of the project is to raise awareness about safety, risk, and injury prevention.
Our story-sharers have a common motivation: helping others learn from and avoid the same type of incident that they experienced. Their first-hand experiences raise awareness of unrealized hazards, and share lessons learned. We augment their stories with resources for prevention and story frames, timely reminders in cartoon format.
Don’t underestimate the power of sharing your own story; it can help others!
