New Podcast on Suicide Prevention

The tenth episode in CPWR’s Construction Safety and Health podcast series focuses on suicide prevention. Men in construction are dying from suicide at roughly twice the rate of workers in all industries, and this podcast examines contributing factors, signs and symptoms, and actions that can be taken by individuals, companies, and communities to destigmatize the issue and help one another. Dr. John Gaal, Worker Wellness Director for the Missouri Works Initiative (Missouri AFL-CIO), shares his experience and recommendations from the perspective of someone with many years in the industry and who also lost his son to suicide.
