Every year, during September — National Suicide Prevention Month — the construction industry dedicates a week to raising awareness about the unique challenges workers face in construction that lead to suicide and what we can do to prevent it. During Construction Suicide Prevention Week the industry calls attention to the higher-than-average number of suicides in the construction industry and provides resources to help prevent those deaths.
Use these resources to plan activities with your workers during the week of September 4-8, 2023, and let us know how you participated. Participating companies will receive an OSHA-recognized, industry-endorsed certificate of participation and badge you can display on your website and social media.
In 2022, nearly a quarter million construction workers representing 48 states and territories of the U.S. registered their participation in Construction Suicide Prevention Week, an increase over the more than 68,000 workers from 32 states who participated in 2021. Let’s reach even more people in 2023 to save even more lives. Learn More
