Jobsite Safety Includes Mental Health

May 4, 2022

Mental Health is an Essential Part of Safety and Well-Being

Through our participation in Construction Safety Week 2022, we are thankful to be able to share the following resources collected and provided by Construction Safety Week.

As noted by industry research 1 in 5 construction workers struggle with anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues.

At Mike Hooks, we understand that mental health is an essential part of employee well-being and workplace safety.

If you, or someone you know, is struggling with mental health, please take advantage of the resources below and remember:

#WeAreStrongerTogether

The following information was provided by ConstructionSafetyWeek.com

Resources for Mental Health, Addiction Recovery, and Suicide Prevention

Being connected gives us strength, because it means we are not alone in building a stronger, safer industry, and in creating a safe, supportive environment for our workers. We are responsible for the well-being and safety of everyone on every job site.

That means we must be able to see the signs of struggle that can impact safety and productivity, and know when and how to be there for each other. It also means ensuring our workers are equipped with the resources and support they need to work safe every day.
