Uniting the Construction Industry Behind Suicide Prevention
Tuesday, February 28, 2017, 3:00-4:30PM ET (Noon-1:30PM PT)
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the construction industry ranks #1 in the number of recorded suicide deaths and #2 in suicide rates in the U.S. Leaders in construction companies must address this issue as seriously as it does jobsite safety and adopt a "Zero Suicide" goal to accompany the traditional "Zero Accident" target. This webinar will address the risk factors that put construction workers at such high risk for suicide, build a business case for addressing mental health in the workplace, give a lived experience view on mental illness and suicide, and provide steps for employers to build mental wellness and suicide prevention measures into their company programs and policies.
