It’s the National Day of Action where all Australians are reminded that every day is the day to ask, ‘R U OK? and start a conversation.
Safety is an essential component of everything we do at Roberts Co and we approach it holistically; going beyond process and procedures and focusing on hearts and minds of every member of the Roberts Co family, our partners and our industry. Mental health is a broad issue and unfortunately, research and statistics shows it is considerably more prevalent in construction.
It is for this reason that Roberts Co staff are provided with mental health first-aid training so that team members can be proactive when it comes to recognising warning signs in their colleagues and themselves.
We also include signage on our sites that identifies the Mental Health First Aiders, along with other free, invaluable resources available to everyone.
