February Safety Directors Forum
Tue, Feb. 19th - 8:00 am
Suicide and the Construction Industry
Presenter: Kimble Richardson, Community Health Network
A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identified the construction industry as having the highest number of deaths by suicide. This may come as a surprise to many in the industry, so what can we do to prevent such tragedies in our communities?
Join CCS for its February Safety Directors Forum on Tuesday, February 19 where Kimble Richardson of Community Health Network will discuss what to look for to recognize those who may be at risk for depression or suicide and provide resources to help companies create best practices on the subject.
The session will cover:
- Suicide statistics for Indiana
- Warning signs for suicide and/or depression
- Resources for suicide prevention
The CCS Safety Directors’ Forum is a great way to network and share ideas with your peers in the construction and facilities maintenance industry. You don’t have to be a safety director to attend. Everyone is welcome, so please join CCS on February 19th from 8:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. at the CCS Office Conference Center, 8909 Purdue Rd., Suite 140 in Indianapolis for this FREE event.
PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO THE INDIANA SAFETY & HEALTH CONFERENCE, THE FEBRUARY CCS SAFETY DIRECTORS FORUM WILL BE HELD ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 19TH.
