Mental Health Awareness Seminar

Wednesday 26th June 2019 12:30 – 14:30, Bromsgrove

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 seminar,  ‘Mental Health in Construction’ aims to spread awareness of mental ill-health in the construction sector and break the stigma surrounding it.

The seminar will be presented by Chris Chapman, Technical Support Manager for BSG. Chris has over thirty years’ experience of providing construction companies with advice about their legal duties in regard to Health and Safety.

• Your legal responsibilities as an employer
