RUOK? DAY – Tradies Tools to Talk
9th September 2021
by R U OK?
Tradies work across a variety of industries – maybe you’re part of a crew on a large construction site, or an owner operator providing services to the general public. Whatever the worksite, tradies might be faced with challenges and pressures that can bottle up over time, including job uncertainty, financial pressures, intense physical demands, workplace injuries, workplace bullying and relationship breakdowns. These can have a significant impact on mental and emotional wellbeing.
Tradies are often faced with a ‘harden up’ attitude and fear of being judged as weak when it comes to opening up about mental health. It’s important to ask the question, “Are you OK?” if someone seems to be doing it tough. This will lay the foundation and give them permission to open up about life’s ups and downs.
