CURTIS WEBER BIOGRAPHY

On July 29, 1999, Curtis Weber was 17 years old and working as he did every day as a Construction Laborer on the Saskatchewan prairies. After a long day at work, he and his crew were attempting to transport a grain bin under a power line. Before performing the task, they assessed the risk of moving the bin under an overhead power line. After a brief discussion, they talked about the power line and how it “had the potential to kill somebody”. Just minutes later, it nearly did.

They had to be cautious. They thought they could get the job done safely. As they worked against the elements, he steadied the bin from the high winds while they approached the overhead line. Then the predictable happened. The preventable happened.

As they approached the overhead line, the operator of the crane did not boom down far enough and backed directly into the power line. Curtis Weber immediately became the ground point for the electricity as 14,400 volts of electricity surged through his body three separate times. He was surrounded by steel and as each cycle of 14,400 volts passed through his body, the electricity tried to eject him from the live zone, instead throwing him violently from one end of the steel structure to another as the 2nd and 3rd cycles of 14,400 volts of electricity passed through him.

Curtis Weber was given a 0% chance of survival, his family was told he would not survive his injuries. He had 3rd and 4th degree burns to over 60% of his body and is now a double amputee. Let him tell you his story of triumph over tragedy and share with you how and why he was lucky that day.

After the near-fatal injury and the 6-year recovery that followed, Curtis Weber has spent the last 10 years developing skills, experience, and building education in order to provide services in Occupational Health and Safety to organizations throughout Canada. He has developed an exceptional skill set in facilitation and presents to workplaces, schools, conferences, and other events.
