Integrate psychosocial risks into your safety controls

Contraco now incorporates Foremind measures to capture psychosocial risks and help you manage your compliance to psychosocial hazard Codes of Practice.

Why it matters

  • Construction workers are at a high risk of poor mental health such as depression, anxiety, and stress.

  • Across Australia, the suicide rate of male construction workers (including both construction managers and tradespeople) is 97% higher than that of male workers in other occupations.

  • The high rate of poor mental health has the potential to cause serious harm to construction works and could further influence project performance (e.g., additional cost, low productivity, and safety accidents).

  • Therefore, improving mental health on your construction sites matters.
