Mental health and wellbeing is critical to the construction industry’s safety culture. 

 The industry began a transformative journey to improve its safety, reduce accidents and prevent fatalities in the 1980’s. The next step in this journey is to ensure companies are equipped to help support and promote their employees’ mental health and wellbeing.

As part of our commitment to supporting our staff and marking the start of ‘Construction Safety Week’, Designer Group launch our new wellness survey today.

What’s more, our team are as passionate as we are for this essential campaign. John Blake, a Designer Group Site Manager and brand ambassador for health, safety and wellbeing standards at Designer Group, encourages other key players in the industry to “step up and help in any way they can”.

As gold sponsors of CIF Safety 2020, we wish the Construction Industry Federation (CIF) and all participants, including the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity, who provide vital wellbeing support, a successful ‘Construction Safety Week’.
