Description: DBIA-WPR Sacramento Chapter Lunch/Webinar, INTEGRATING MENTAL HEALTH AND SUICIDE AWARENESS INTO CONSTRUCTION SAFETY. Research by the Construction Industry Rehabilitation Plan, a Canadian organization, found that 83% of construction workers north of the border have experienced some form of moderate to severe mental health issue. In the US, a 2020 study by the CDC found that men working in construction have one of the highest suicide rates compared to other industries. Their suicide rate was about four times higher than the general population. These studies were from before the pandemic!!! This is a crisis that we as an industry need to address with urgency. Please join DBIA-WPR Sacramento chapter to understand the significance of this crisis and programs some of our GC and Trade partners have developed to address it.
