Event Recap: Construction Suicide Prevention Week
September 4th-September 8th, 2023
The importance of safety in construction cannot be overstated. In our industry, physical safety has not always translated into mental well-being, which contributes to the high suicide rate. This year, we participated in Construction Suicide Prevention Week to raise awareness about the tragic consequences of suicide in such a close-knit industry. At Pyramid Contracting, we placed a special focus on stamping out the stigma surrounding mental illness and providing our employees with the resources to help save lives.
Assistant Project Manager Denton DiCarlo leading a Toolbox Talk out in the field.
Safety Director Mike Moss leading a discussion about the importance of suicide prevention in our industry.
You don’t need to be a mental health expert to help someone in need. Openly discussing mental health and suicide prevention creates a safe environment for our team members.
If you or someone you know is struggling, remember that help is just a call, text, or chat away. Dial 988 for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline. Reaching out to those feeling disconnected can save lives.
