The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) is undertaking an extensive survey into mental health within the construction industry.
Mental health within the construction industry is becoming increasingly critical and the CIOB is responding to recent figures from the Office of National Statistics (ONS), which found that men in the UK construction industry are almost four times more likely to take their own lives than men on average.
The results from the survey will be analysed to establish the primary pressures on construction workers at different levels (e.g. director, site manager, site worker etc.) and whether there are any other patterns across the responses.
Anyone currently working within the industry is being invited to complete the survey, to provide their insight into this important topic.
