I’m Sonni Gopal
During the early stages in my career, I suffered a serious injury in the workplace. Never want this to happen to anyone and this is what inspires and motivates me for “saferworking”.
I am passionate about mentoring and sharing expertise.
I regularly present at conferences and share my knowledge via blog-posts and videos.

“For safety objectives to be successful, they have to be meaningful, manageable and most importantly sustainable.”
I offer my safety expertise, mentoring and support to individuals, big & small companies on an international level. I regularly post articles and videos on safety matters.
