Clare Murray was a young tree faller in Prince George when a sudden gust of wind took a tree sideways, dropping it on him and leaving him with a leg that ultimately needed to be amputated. He attended WorkSafeBC’s Richmond Rehabilitation Centre for his physical recovery and was part of the first class of the WorkSafeBC Access Ability program that was launched in 1987 to retrain severely injured workers as computer programmers. After five years of consulting, Clare was recruited as a Systems Analyst for his first job at WorkSafeBC. He has been at WorkSafeBC for the past 26 years in various capacities within IT, and was appointed Chief Information Officer in May 2018.
