Contour Roofing Team up with ‘Mates in Mind’ – Lets get Construction talking

MIM CertificateHealth and Safety in the construction sector has changed and improved vastly over the past decade, which we can all applauded ourselves for, but should we all feel a bit guilty of being consumed by ‘Safety’ with ‘Health’ taking a back seat – I think so. The fact that suicide kills far more construction workers than falls in our industry was a clear message that as a business we need to intervene to get everyone talking more openly without the thought of discrimination. In 2018 Contour Roofing will be rolling out NEW training for all senior management and roofing operatives so together we can educate ourselves, colleagues and partners with ‘Mental Health Awareness’ and what to look out for.

Some worrying facts……

  • Suicide is the leading cause of death for men under 50.
  • Low-skilled male construction workers are at greatest risk, with a suicide rate 3.7 times above the national average.

A couple of favours please……

If you notice someone suffering, see if you can help:

  • Ask how they are
  • Ask if they would like to talk

If you are suffering let someone know:

  • Talk to a colleague
  • Talk to a friend
  • Talk to a family member
  • Talk to your line manager
  • Talk to a doctor
  • Talk to someone

MIM Supporter PlaqueIf I had an office or even a door it would always be open and please feel free to talk to myself in confidence at any time.
