Wellbeing & Diversity in Construction
Event Venue and Description – Webinar
Worker wellbeing in the construction industry has rarely been out of the headlines over the past few years – and rightly so.
The construction industry has the highest suicide rate of any other profession – whilst 400,000 days a year are lost in productivity due to work-related stress, depression and anxiety. And there are many challenges to overcome – from long hours, extended times working away from home, temporary and precarious nature of many projects, diversity challenges, the ‘macho culture’ and more have all contributed.
This online conference will look to break down stigmas, bring awareness to issues and challenges, and hear from those at the forefront of change – sharing details on what is being done successfully across the UK in many different sectors of the industry. A large focus in the past on Health & Safety has been on physical hazards – and now it’s now to focus on the wellbeing of our most important asset – the workforce.
During the webinar the following Topics will be covered:
- Wellbeing in the industry
- Developing a health & wellbeing strategy
- LGBTQ+ in construction
- Diversity & inclusion in the industry
- Flexible working – the lessons from Covid-19
- Age in construction – attracting and retaining skills
