Thank you and well done to Robert who has won November’s Thanks For Your Effort Award of £100 in shop vouchers. Robert is a Fitter and Operator at Kilbarchan Asphalt Plant. He potentially saved a person’s life when he stepped in to protect and support an injured person lying on the side of the road. Robert noticed a funny shaped thing at the side of the road whilst he was driving past. He stopped and went back to investigate to find a person.
The person was lying disorientated and semi-conscious from gas inhalation. He could have been badly affected by the cold (it was minus 2 degrees) and potentially be hit by traffic. Robert used his first aid training, roused the man and made him conscious again. He called the ambulance service then moved him to a safer area, and used his car as a barrier against traffic.
Robert’s prompt actions probably saved this person’s life or at the least saved them from more serious injury/illness.
