CIPHE launches campaign to reduce suicides

The CIPHE has launched its Under Pressure campaign to address mental health problems in the construction industry.

The industry has the highest number of suicides than any other sector of the economy. Financial worries and isolation are among the issues putting strain on workers.

In a poll, conducted by the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) and 25 other construction trade bodies, 41% of respondents said that payment issues had strained their relationship with their partner, with 5% reporting it caused it to breakdown entirely.

P&H Engineering will be campaigning throughout 2020 with the CIPHE to change the workplace culture and help members experiencing mental health issues.

CIPHE membership director, Tim Sainty, said: “Working in plumbing and heating engineering can be a highly pressured environment. We want to equip our members with the knowledge to minimise the occasions this impacts negatively on their mental health and to provide a route to support on the occasions it does.”
