The employees of AM Technical Solutions (AM) understand that we are responsible for supporting each person on the jobsite when we provide high-tech construction services for our clients.
However, our responsibility is not limited to just the work that is to be performed. We also value our role in providing care to individuals during breaks, before the work begins, or after the work is completed.
A great example is what occurred during a recent lunch break at a job site in North Carolina. One of our newest employees, Caleb Watson, jumped in and performed the Heimlich maneuver on an individual who was choking.
How Caleb Watson Provided Care During a Difficult Situation
Caleb was part of the cleanroom build team for a cleanroom construction project in Raleigh, N.C. At the time of the incident, Caleb was eating lunch in the facility breakroom at this particular worksite. Then, Caleb noticed that another gentleman was having trouble breathing, hunched over, and overall struggling.
Before Caleb stepped in, another individual tried to perform the Heimlich, but he was unable to dislodge the object that was causing the gentleman to choke. Caleb followed through on his responsibility to provide care for others and took over. After a few tries, he was able to dislodge the object from the man’s throat.
This was a selfless act on Caleb’s part. He did not know the man prior to the incident, as this individual was part of the custodian staff that was enjoying lunch in the break room at the time. Since the incident, Caleb has run into the gentlemen a few more times at the jobsite to check on his status.
Caleb has worked for our company for less than one year (about 9 months). This act captured his commitment to our company’s values of doing the right thing at all times.
“We appreciate Caleb’s quick action and leadership stepping into a difficult situation to provide care to a stranger,” says Kelly McAndrew, AM Chairman and CEO. “Caleb’s actions captured the servant heart of our company to look out for each other in times of need, no matter the circumstances.”
