Male site workers in construction are three times more likely to commit suicide than the average UK male. This shocking mental health statistic is a vivid reminder of the difficulties faced by many working in the construction industry every day.
BSG’s free seminars, ‘Mental Health in Construction’ aim to spread awareness of mental ill-health in the construction sector and break the stigma surrounding it.
Our Bristol seminar will be presented by BSG’s Training Manager, Steve Beckwith whilst the London and Birmingham sessions be presented by Chris Chapman, Technical Support Manager for BSG. Between them, both Steve and Chris have over fifty years’ experience of providing construction companies with advice about their legal duties in regard to Health and Safety.
