The suicide rate in the construction industry is among the nation's highest and we'd like to help reverse that trend. In particular, September 5-9 is Construction Suicide Prevention Week, when events will be held nationwide to raise awareness about the unique challenges faced by construction workers, and what employers can do to help safeguard their mental health, and lives. As part of the week-long focus, on Thursday, September 8, 2022 at 2 p.m., CPWR - Center for Construction Research and Training will host a webinar along with OSHA, the Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide prevention and others to talk about the impact of suicide, signs and symptoms to be aware of, ad contributing factors such as high rates of opioid use disorder.
