Jordan’s Space on Yowah Radio
Show: 16 Suicide – the silent epidemic in construction. Interview with Sarah Meek
Why do construction workers account for almost 10% of all suicides in the UK? Underneath those tough, sometimes macho images we see of hard hats and hi-vis jackets, there lies a silent epidemic which is literally killing to construction industry. Workers in construction are almost 4 times more likely to take their own lives than the general population.
In this episode of Jordan’s Space, Sarah will share why she believe the numbers of suicides in construction are so high and what needs to be done to reduce these staggering statistics.
