HSE reported 20,000 work-related cases of stress, depression, or anxiety (new or long-standing) within the Construction Industry - that's 27% of all ill health within this sector.
The question is, what are doing to support your own mental health and well-being and that of your coworkers and employee?
Here at the Construction Health & Safety Group, we understand the importance of managing stress, which is why we have compiled a few resources that we thought you might find useful for yourself, or for a colleague or your employees.
Mental Health First Aid Training
Equip your team or yourself with an understanding and awareness of mental health and well-being issues, how to spot the signs and where help can be received.
We subsidise these courses to ensure that they are accessible to everyone.
