Congratulations to Juan Torres Jr. for achieving a 2013 President’s Health and Safety, Life Saving Award.
In the fall of 2013, Juan Torres Jr., an employee in the Body Shop, was notified by another employee that there was someone having trouble breathing and was laying on the ground. Juan immediately started performing CPR on his co-worker until the OHAP ERT arrived at the scene a few minutes later.
The unconscious employee was taken to a nearby hosptial where he made a full recovery.
This was a situation where seconds could have made a difference in the outcome. Juan’s immediate response was critical in aiding the OHAP ERT's response.
The Presidents Health and Safety Awards are part of Ford’s ongoing effort to recognize and support improvements that increase the health and safety of workers in all Ford environments.
