Mission and vision


Since Christopher Cassaniti’s tragic loss due to a jobsite scaffold collapse in Sydney, his mother Patrizia has been on a mission to get infront of as many workers as possible to share her story of the loss, the grief and the plea for change in the culture of the industry. Starting with shifting complacency in every worker and giving them the courage to speak up when they feel they are in danger or see unsafe work practices, without being victimised or have fear of losing their job.

Patrizia is not only there as a motivational speaker but a as mum who wants to resonate with workers on a personal level and inspire them to always work safe so that they can go home safe to their families every day.

Tragedy of Christopher Cassaniti


At 12.15pm on Monday the 1st of April 2019, a scaffold collapsed on a jobsite in Macquarie Park and tragically crushed and killed 18 year old Christopher Cassaniti.

Christopher had only just celebrated  his 18th Birthday with family and friends on the Saturday. He had just purchased his first car and picked it up on the Friday before. He was a young man with dreams and goals that were never fulfilled.  His death shook the family and the industry to its core and left a legacy behind, so since his death, his mother Patrizia Cassaniti has turned her anger to something positive and has been advocating safety in his honour with a mission to make sure that no Australian worker should ever go to work and die.

She has been making the rounds on the media and sharing her story about ‘WHAT TRAGEDY LOOKS LIKE and what happens when complacency overrides what we know is Safe to do in the first place and disaster hits.

The Touched by Christopher Foundation

The Touched by Christopher Foundation was launched a few months after Christopher Cassaniti was tragically killed in a scaffold collapse, 4 days after his 18th Birthday.  Patrizia and Robert Cassaniti were overwhelmed by the support they received from family, friends and total strangers bringing food and groceries to their homes, so they decided to give back.

The foundation raises money to help families who have lost a loved one at a work place. We provide the families with 3 months’ worth of groceries and pay for any outstanding utility bills, so that the family can grieve without the everyday burden. Unfortunately bills do not stop when someone dies and most of the time, the person who dies is the bread winner.

Our goal

Our Goal for the Touched by Christopher Foundation is to extend the constitution to cover any workplace death nationally, plus add 3 months’ worth of mortgage or rent. With an average of about 15 workers dying per month, the foundation would need $2.5 million a year in the bank account just to facilitate it.

So your help and contribution to this cause is very much appreciated.  Please visit the Touched by Christopher Foundation website for more info.

With so much great infrastructure and construction going on in and around in Australia, we all need to work together to ensure our Sons, Daughters, Brothers and Sisters have great protection and safety in place at work, so that they can go home to their families.
