Recently a member of our Cement Finishing community had a stroke while at work. He did not realize that anything had happened or that something was wrong. A co-worker noticed his slightly slurred speech and urged him to go to the hospital to get checked. Upon arrival at the hospital, a stroke was confirmed and he was medicated immediately to treat his stroke condition. Thankfully he is expected to make a full recovery !
Our focus on safety includes looking out for others. If you see someone who has a drooping face, or cannot raise both arms, or has slurred or confused speech (ask them to repeat a sentence) – then call 911 for assistance immediately (time is critical).
