HEADS UP: A Comprehensive Guide to Mental Wellness on the Jobsite
Jobsite hazards typically evoke images of physical dangers like unprotected falls or unmarked restricted zones. However, hidden risks, such as mental health challenges, are equally critical. The CDC’s research shows that construction workers face one of the highest suicide rates across industries, along with significant occurrences of drug overdose deaths.
This course aims to demystify mental health, illustrating how awareness can enhance job site safety. We will explore how to recognize warning signs and implement proactive measures to prevent tragedy. Participants will gain practical tools based on the 3-step ACE method: Advocate, Communicate, Educate, applicable immediately within their organizations.
