We lose a construction worker every second day to suicide.
This statistic is scary and speaks volumes about how much work is still ahead of us.
If we want change, we must continue the conversation and assist in delivering the message of help & support that MATES in Construction W.A offer, out to the construction community.
Allwest Plant Hire is proud to be an industry partner to MATES in Construction W.A.
To help raise awareness of the prevention programs and the 24/7 helpline we have launched “Call a Mate, before it’s too late” initiative. By placing a decal in the cabin of each machine, we aim to reach as many workers as possible with this message in hopes it will positively change the suicide rate statistics.

If you or anyone you know is suffering, don’t do it in silence. Help is available via 24/7 helpline and all calls are strictly confidential. 1300 642 111
