NGA Spotlights Jobsite Safety and Mental Health Awareness in May

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month in May and Construction Safety Week, May 6-10, NGA provides information to support education and awareness surrounding construction site safety.

This year’s theme is Value Every Voice, highlighting that the safety and success of any construction project is determined by the individual decisions and actions of every team member. Mental health and jobsite safety go hand in hand. Healthy workers are safer workers.

34% of construction workers suffer from a muscoloskeletal injury.


Pain leads to sleep deprivation, fatigue, loss of focus, and all this leads to more injury.


"Think about human capital. Take care of people and they’ll take care of your business. The intersection between physical health and mental wellbeing has a huge impact on your business." -Cal Beyer, SAFE Project

NGA is pleased to share some of its resources that support a safer, more mindful construction industry.
