Many employers want to address mental health awareness and suicide prevention with employees but do not have a framework for launching a program. In order to help the construction industry address this issue, Steve Frost of the Oregon Construction Industry Suicide Task Force has developed the We Are Here For You program as a way to raise awareness and prepare for difficult conversations with people experiencing a moment of crisis.
Geared toward safety professionals, supervisors of all levels, and human resource managers, the We Are Here For You program discusses risk factors, warning signs, and resources for company safety leaders. The goal is to create a culture where people listen and are prepared to start the conversation that can help save a life.
Safety & Health Council meetings are free to all members, but registration is required. Access information for this event will be sent the day before to all registered attendees. Please contact Lisa Wisler, 971-808-6273, with any questions.
