R U OK Day – Mates in Construction

This R U OK Day I was pleased to show my support for MATES in Construction.

In Australia around 190 people working in the construction industry take their own lives-that’s one every two days.
Construction workers are six times more likely to die from suicide than an accident at work.

This organisation is seeking to reduce the high rates of suicide in the building and construction industries.
