Do you want to join us in making a difference? The liquid roofing and waterproofing industry are raising money in aid of MATES IN MIND and every donation will help.
Figures released by the Office of National Statistics show that the incidence of suicide among roofers, tilers and slaters is 2.7 times higher than the national average. Shockingly, between 2011 and 2015, ONS data shows 2,757 people working in the roofing industry committed suicide – compared to 217 fatal injuries in the same period – 97 of which were caused by a fall from height.
Tackling this issue will need to form part of a long-term campaign across the industry, but as an association we have also committed to supporting a mental health charity throughout 2019/20.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to the industry.
