Construction workers are six times more likely to die by suicide than through a workplace accident and young workers are of particularly high risk. This is a tragic loss for our industry and must be addressed.
MATES in Construction is an industry led approach to an industry problem. Lendlease is proud to be a founding partner of MATES and this year we’re working to reach at least 20,000 construction workers nationally. We will offer the program not only to our own workers, but all workers on our projects including subcontractors and suppliers.
