SUICIDE PREVENTION IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
Suicide is a serious problem in the construction industry. Construction has the 2nd highest rate of suicides among all occupations. It is a high stress job that has high rates of alcohol and drug use, as well as a “tough guy” culture.
AGC of Missouri is committed to offering our members the necessary tools and resources to help save lives. Mental health needs to be a part of the safety conversation.
