In partnership with the Associated General Contractors of Missouri (AGCMO), our team created a series of Toolbox Talks that can be used to raise awareness around the suicide epidemic in the construction industry. While they are created to be used as a week-long series, each TBT can be used on its own in order to emphasize specific messages to your crew.
We have also included a How-To Guide, developed using TBT best practices, to help your foremen facilitate discussion around this challenging and personal topic.
