Stress, Suicide and burnout

Material Procurment Exercise



You many not have been expecting this topic, probably because we don't talk about it much in our industry.


But considering construction remains in the top 5 industries with the highest male suicide rates, this is a serious and major challenge that needs to be addressed. I have personally experienced and witnessed the effects and tolls that stress has on those who work in construction and wanted to do whatever I could to help. This is what fueled my passion for educating and helping others, to not only alleviate the stress and burnout, but create and encourage pride, camaraderie and motivation within our industry.

Below are resources about this massive problem in our industry as well as resources to help gain awareness and/or help a friend, collogue or trade partner who may just need someone to help.
