Mental Health

It is estimated that 1 in 6 people will experience some form of mental ill health at work and that 30% to 40% of absences from work are caused by mental ill health. In fact, HSE estimates that over 11 million days are lost at work each year because of stress at work. Sadly, in the UK suicide kills far more construction workers than falls.
