Suicide Prevention in Construction

Last month, September 6th to 10th was OSHA’s Suicide Prevention Stand Down week. This press release from the CDC highlights that the construction industry has one of the highest rates of suicide compared to other industries. There are a number of resources out there to help you develop training programs, provide information to workers, and factual information to support this hazard in the Construction industry.

Join us for our quarterly Construction section meeting where Suicide Awareness will be presented. You can register for that free virtual event here.
