ABC Spreads the Word About Suicide Prevention Month

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, construction occupations have the highest rate of suicide, as well as the highest number of suicides, across all occupational groups. To combat these statistics and spread awareness, Greg Sizemore, ABC’s vice president of health, safety, environment and workforce development and chair of the Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention, traveled to five ABC chapters across the country to speak about what ABC chapters and members can do to help those who may be struggling. He was also interviewed in various trade publications and news outlets, such as the Marietta Daily Journal, For Construction Pros and Workwear Guru.

In addition, ABC created a variety of digital assets for its members to use online and on their social media channels, including:

  • Nine social media graphics from the Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention available on Flickr
  • Social media language
  • Links to additional resources

Between the media coverage, in-person presentations and leveraging ABC’s social media network, ABC reached more than 35,000 people on this topic.
