Mercury staff located on project sites across Europe marked Suicide Prevention Day 2020 by holding a number of important wellbeing focused toolbox talks.

As a company we are actively promoting this important wellbeing day for our staff and also for our subcontractors.

Our team members actively spoke to one another about the importance of mental health and raising awareness about an issue that accounts for over 800,000 deaths globally.

Michael O’Connor, Group EHS Director said: “Taking a minute to reach out and have a conversation can save a life. It’s absolutely brilliant to see our team members taking care of each other and offering support to all personnel, including our supply chain on our project sites across Europe.”

Multilingual posters have been displayed around many of our sites with information aimed at educating staff about suicide, as well as contact details for support hotlines.

Every life lost represents someone’s partner, child, parent, friend or colleague.
