At Built Environs, we are proactively committed to ensuring the wellbeing of our teams.
Mental health and suicide awareness are still key challenges in the construction industry, and we are committed to supporting our people through tough times by ensuring they receive the help they need.
We are a long-term member of MATES In Construction (MATES), an independent charity that aims to reduce suicide and improve mental health and wellbeing within construction and allied industries.
All of our major sites across Australia and New Zealand are MATES-accredited.
The MATES In Construction program focuses on equipping people to offer help to others by building a community that looks out for each other – ‘mates looking out for mates’.
Together with MATES, we are achieving positive outcomes and taking an active role in improving the mental health and wellbeing of our workforce, reducing stigma and developing a community-supported approach to early intervention and suicide prevention.
