Jarvis Group

At Jarvis, we pride ourselves on providing a friendly and co-operative environment for all our employees to work in. Last week, as part of World Mental Health Day, we held Toolbox Talks across all of our construction sites, open to all employees and operatives on site discussing the causes of stress and pressure, and how to deal with them, as well as what programmes are available to them, such as the Construction Industry Helpline.

Each talk was held by one of our Wellbeing Champions, who have received Mental Health First Aid training.

These talks were accompanied by a health check questionnaire, asking all of our staff to reflect on their own mental health and provide their thoughts on where we can improve in the future to ensure we do all we can to keep a healthy and happy workforce. We also offered everybody the opportunity to discuss their mental health, confidentially, with one of our trained champions.
