The importance of employee wellbeing has never been greater; the lasted ONS report has highlighted construction workers as having poor metal health and wellbeing showing the staggering figures of 1,419 suicides that took place within the construction and building trades between 2011 and 2015. It’s also estimated that work-related stress, anxiety and depression cost the industry 400,000 work days a year.
The construction industry is now beginning to place the same level of importance on employee wellbeing as they do on safety and are now actively developing wellbeing strategies within their organisations.
