TIME TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
We are passionate about raising awareness and understanding around the importance of good mental health across PHD and the industry-as-a-whole.
PHD are committed to removing the stigma and ending discrimination around mental health and have raise money for Mind Charity and The Mental Health Foundation.
We have an in-house Mental Health Support Worker and have implemented new mental health initiatives to provide an informal network for anyone needing to talk or find support in times of difficulty or stress. Our Mental Health Initiative is to create and sustain a platform to address Mental Health as a priority within the workplace. This platform will research, provide services, and focus on mental health.
TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE
PHD are continuously exploring various ways to improve our knowledge and awareness of mental health. Throughout August and September, we visited each of our sites to film our operatives for a special video; ‘Together, We Can Make A Huge Difference’. The aim of this video is to raise people’s consciousness to how their colleagues may be feeling and to encourage individuals to seek help if they feel they are struggling mentally. This video made it’s debut at our annual seminar in October 2019, and is shown at each of our inductions.
TEA & TALK DAY
Mental Health Awareness Training has been put in place for all Site Managers and Senior members of staff within the head office to gain further understanding on the topic and know how to spot the signs of anyone suffering.
All this is supported by our Board of Directors to ensure PHD remains the Healthiest and Safest scaffold company to work for.
MENTAL HEALTH CHARTER
We have recently signed a pledge to Building Mental Health. This shows our commitment to the Lighthouse Club charity that provide financial and emotional support to the construction community and their families. Certificate
