September 10th 2022 is World Suicide Prevention day and Brogan Group are delivering a Toolbox talk to our site teams to raise awareness about Suicide.
In the UK and Ireland, two construction workers take their own lives every working day and stress, anxiety and depression account for a fifth of all work-related illnesses.
For World Suicide Prevention Day, we're encouraging everyone to start a conversation, whether it's with your friends, families or your co-workers.
Globally 1 million people die due to suicide every year.
