AVA supporting World Suicide Prevention Day

According to figures released by the Office of National Statistics last week, suicide deaths in the UK have risen for the first time since 2013.

Last year, there were 6,507 suicides in Great Britain and construction is one of the worst-affected industries.

Suicides among construction workers are more than three times the national average for men, according to building.co.uk, who say an average of two construction workers commits suicide every day.

On World Suicide Prevention Day, AVA Electrical Ltd would like to offer its support for construction workers around the world and urge them to look after their mental health.

Mental health is just as important as physical health and we want people to feel comfortable talking about any problems they might have today – as well as any other day.
