Operations Manager completes Mental Health First Aider course
Zone Contractors are very proud to announce that our Operations Manager Aidan Munnelly has become a Mental Health First Aider after completing a course with St John Ambulance. We are committed in ensuring the good physical and psychological well-being of our employees.
“Mental health is a subject I consider to be extremely important, a subject that cannot be overlooked in the Construction Industry any longer. The Office of National Statistics has found that Male site workers in construction are three times more likely to commit suicide than the average UK male.”
Mental health problems are common. They affect thousands of people in the UK, and their friends, families, work colleagues and society in general. But even though so many people are affected, there is a strong social stigma attached to mental ill health, and people with mental health problems can experience discrimination in all aspects of their lives.
Aidan added: “I want all my Friends, Colleagues or Connections to be aware that I am here and available if you ever feel you are having issues with your mental health and want/need to talk to someone.”
