Construction News – Mind Matters Campaign

An online survey on the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) website showed that 84% of construction professionals polled felt that stress in the construction industry was a factor for poor retention levels. The survey generated 847 participants of whom 578 claimed to have suffered from stress, anxiety or depression. 50.5% of respondents indicated that they had taken time off to help them to cope with occupational stress although only 6% did so formally. CIOB speculate that this reluctance to disclose stress may be due to concern about any negative perceptions or negative impact on their careers if they openly admitted it. The report also talks about the knock-on effect of stress because of its impact on the individual’s performance, and the possible risk to colleagues who may be dependent on the judgement of a colleague experiencing difficulties. Clearly there are implications for the health and safety. To read more about the CIOB report on stress in the construction industry   Click here….
