It’s already Day 4 of Construction Safety Week, and we hope you’re sharing all the topics from this week’s videos. Today’s topic is Mental Health Awareness. We’re bringing it to you because it’s one of the most difficult conditions that we encounter on the job, yet the least talked about safety hazard that we face.
Experts have shown us that suicide rates in the construction industry continue to be much higher than other non-construction occupations. But no matter what your occupation is, Mental Healthy Awareness and Suicide Prevention are important topics for everyone to discuss.
Please spend a few minutes watching today’s video closely about mental health awareness.
If you or someone you know may need help, go to www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org for support.
