Bio: Steve Frost joined the construction safety world in 2007 after going back to school at the age of 25. In 2017, he joined Howard S. Wright as a Safety Health and Environmental Manager for the Portland area. One area that Steve felt drawn to is mental health and the impacts to the construction industry. Construction is the second highest at-risk occupation group that sees mental health issues; many of which lead to suicide. Steve has made it his mission to help reverse that statistic.
