Theo Venter

22,000 Volt Electric Shock survivor

Theo Venter is one of the only people ever recorded to have been exposed and survived a 22,000 volt electrical accident whilst working on overhead power lines in Perth, Western Australia in 2006. Theo shares his amazing story ‘Just Another Day’ with audiences around the world.

Theo Venter was an electrical lines man and has worked in the high voltage business for over 23 years.

After leaving his home country South Africa, Theo and his family immigrated to Australia where his trade was in high demand.

On his arrival to Australia, Theo commenced work as a contractor working on a major electricity network.

Theo’s presentation reflects on the day he was electrocuted by 22,000 volts of electricity whilst working on live powerlines.

Theo talks candidly of his three days in hospital waiting to die and his desperate fight to survive both physically and mentally long after the event.

This story is extremely hard hitting with a very personal and very powerful safety message.

During Theo’s 40 minute talk, a slideshow presentation is projected showing his horrific injuries received, his family and his slow road back to recovery.

Theo has had the opportunity to influence and inspire hundreds of organisations and countless thousands of people to think and act differently about what they do in their day.
