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.
There are many organizations and resources you can leverage as you discuss and address mental health awareness in your organization.
