- Kevin Fear (Health & Safety Policy Lead at CITB) - 'Time to Talk' about mental health
Every single working day, two construction workers take their own lives. Stress, depression or anxiety accounts for a fifth of all work-related illness and the industry loses around 400,000 working days each year because of them. Kevin will set out the overwhelming evidence of the silent epidemic of poor mental health and how this is affecting those who work in the built environment. Kevin will go on to outline both national and industry initiatives that have been put in place to help with both the identification of the problem and how individuals can seek to help improve the quality of their lives.
