Description

The construction industry is highest in number of suicide deaths and second-highest in suicide rate per 100,000 workers. Contractors are typically safety-focused and increasingly aware of the critical role wellness plays in their employees' lives. However, an important topic that can positively impact workforce safety, wellness, and productivity is often neglected – mental health. This session will address this preventable epidemic among the construction workforce and educate participants on risk factors, warning signs, and protective actions to take with at-risk employees. Takeaways can be used to conduct a needs analysis and equip companies to face suicide and mental health concerns head-on.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about warning signs and what to do if an employee is believed to be at risk
  • Identify construction risk factors for suicide
  • Build a business case for addressing mental illness/suicide prevention in the workplace
  • Discuss postvention strategies should a suicide or mental health crisis occur in an organization.
  • Conduct a needs/gap analysis of business practices & policies – how to align with mental health promotion and suicide prevention.
