We were incredibly humbled to hear that Russell Piper, a project manager for our client, Morgan Lovell, was named “Workplace Hero” at the St John Ambulance Everyday Heroes awards on 7th September, after giving life-saving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to a colleague on a building site in Ealing, London.
Russell was working on a construction site when his colleague, Stephen Headley, had a cardiac arrest. Having been an official first aider for Morgan Lovell for 15 years, Russell dialled 999 and talked to ambulance control, while administering CPR. As a direct result of Russell’s actions, Morgan Lovell now offers AED training to staff and has made defibrillators available to site teams. It’s fantastic to hear that Stephen survived as a result of Russell’s training.
