BUILDEX Construction Leaders Breakfast

Presented by ICBA and CCA

Wednesday, October 18, 8:00am – 9:30am
(An invitation only event)

Tremendous advances have been made in protecting the construction industry workforce’s physical safety, however mental health remains one of the greatest risks to those on the job site and in the office. Higher incidences of mental health disorders and suicide are well documented in the construction industry, and although change is underway, improvements remain. For contractors and business owners, strong ethical and business cases exist to ensure the well-being of their employees; enabling them to realize their potential, to cope with the stresses of everyday life, and to work productively for their businesses.
