Suicide can happen anywhere & at any workplace!

We all want to prevent these tragic losses, but when it happens at work it doesn’t just cause confusion and effect morale and productivity. It can result in costly compensation claims, high staff turn over, fines for not meeting legal requirements, and other negative impacts on your business. So it’s vital to be suicide@work aware! 

 

Did you know?

Sadly, huge numbers of people suicide every.
In America alone, 36,500 people of working age die this way each year.

The amount of traumatic impact on the Australian population from each suicide loss is equivalent to 3,007 fully loaded Boeing 737 aeroplanes crash landing yearly. Globally this number is exponentially higher!

The cause of 1/6th of Australian suicides are work related!

Many people end their life where loved ones won’t find them, which makes it likely staff will find them.

This training is so essential. It helped us know what staff may be experiencing and all the things we needed to do, especially things we hadn’t realised. Thanks
