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.

The CIOB ‘Understanding Mental Health in the Built Environment Report 2020’ found that:

  • 26% of construction industry professionals thought about taking their own lives in 2019
  • Construction workers are more at risk of committing suicide than they are from falling from height
  • Every single working day in the UK 2 construction workers take their own life
  • But some things can be done to help people in crisis and some of this involves unpacking certain myths around Suicide
