CN launches Mind Matters survey
The Construction News 2022 Mental Health Survey has opened.
The anonymous survey, Mind Matters, is carried out every year in the construction and engineering services sector. It aims to paint a clear picture of the mental health of UK construction workers and how this has changed in recent years.
CN says that previous editions of the survey have highlighted long working hours as the biggest contributor to poor mental health, and that two-thirds of operatives who have taken time off for mental ill-health have hidden their reasons from their employer.
The pandemic has had a profound impact on society as a whole, and CN is investigating the changes that have occurred during that time, as well as whether the overall mental health picture in construction has improved.
