Construction Suicide Prevention Week

Did you know that the construction industry has the second highest rate of suicide in the United States at 53.3 per 100,000 workers?


Did you know that the construction industry has the second highest rate of suicide in the United States at 53.3 per 100,000 workers?!? September is Suicide Prevention Month, and this week is Construction Suicide Prevention Week. We're kicking off our two-month-long campaign to raise awareness about the high number of suicides in the industry, and to provide resources to our members to help prevent those deaths. We will be posting weekly updates on our website that will include videos, toolbox talks, and helpful links, and wrapping it up with an in-person presentation by Nazia Shah from Associated General Contractors of America at our Annual Meeting on November 9.
