Corporate Adviser - Suicide killing six times as many construction workers as site falls

Suicide kills six times as many construction workers as site falls, yet employers pay less attention to the mental health of their staff than their physical staff, says Grid.

Speaking in response to figures from Samaritans that show that more than three times as many people die from suicide as from car accidents, with 6,122 suicides in 2014, of which 70 per cent were males, compared to 1,755 road traffic fatalities, Grid is calling on employers to make the most of the mental health support facilities available through their group risk policies.
