Quick thinking and safety training comes to the rescue as two McCann employees help injured delivery driver

Civil and Electrical Engineering firm McCann has commended a heroic performance by two employees, as Steven Finch and Dave Millington put their first aid training to the test to help an injured delivery driver.

Both men have earned the McCann October Employee of the Month award, after having the presence of mind to respond to an incident which occurred while they were loading lighting columns during work on the A45 Tollbar scheme.

Steven and Dave noticed a delivery driver struggling to unload steel sections from his lorry. Before either could offer assistance, the driver dropped the steel and, in the process, suffered a severe cut to his forearm. Both men immediately rushed to help, using the first aid kit supplied with all McCann company vans to bandage his arm before contacting emergency services for assistance.

Both Steven and Dave stayed with the driver until the emergency services arrived on the scene, and it is understood that he is now in the process of making a recovery from his injuries thanks to the quick thinking of both men.
