Did you know that the construction industry has a four times higher rate of suicide than the rest of the population?
As Sarah Tacker, vice president and district manager for Northern California, stated, “As an industry we need to normalize conversations about mental health and suicide prevention.”
This week at our project sites, we held stand-downs to talk about mental health. We are working towards normalizing mental health conversations and supporting not only the physical health but also the mental health of our employees.
– Tammy Anander, corporate safety training manager
