Webinar: Safeguarding Mental Health in the Building and Construction Industry (Recording Option)

12:00pm Tuesday, 6 December 2022
Recorded Webinar

AIQS and ACIF have partnered to deliver a webinar addressing mental health concerns in the Australian construction industry.

How can we address the growing mental health concerns in the building and construction industry?

Statistics show an alarming rate of suicide in the Australian construction industry, with male construction workers more likely to suicide than their counterparts in other industries.  A combination of poor job security, high stress, and lack of communication amongst men are some of the reasons behind why men in this industry take their lives each year.

We have invited speakers in the industry to discuss the ways that businesses can better support their workers; the impact that reduced productivity has on construction projects; and how we can all make a difference to our industry’s mental health narrative.
