As employers its important to address workers’ mental health as much as their physical health and safety, sadly this is an often neglected issue in the construction industry.

You can make a difference by identifying one or more of these signs of a mentally unhealthy workplace and doing something about it,

  • Workers less likely to speak to managers about their mental health (anxiety, depression, stress etc.).
  • Workplace lacks the adequate procedures to recognise struggling workers and provide them with support.
  • Workers feel isolated and without support
  • Sick leave and compensation claims are rampant among workers.
