On the Edge – suicide prevention
Almost 500 construction workers take their own lives every year in the UK and Ireland.
The national suicide rate for men is 27.4 per 100,000 people; the construction industry is 49.4.
This five-minute film has been released as a free resource to highlight the issue and provide guidance for anybody affected. It has been made by AKT Productions with Ambanja Films, and depicts a man ‘on the edge’ and thinking of taking his life.
Construction contractor BAM provided a building site in Whitechapel, London as the location.
The project is also supported by the Lighthouse Club welfare charity, which provides emotional, physical and financial support to construction workers and their families.
