Civmec employees wore blue armbands to signify they had been checked in on by a colleague, and were encouraged to take the blue tape and ‘pay it forward’ afterwards, by starting a conversation with another colleague.
As well as hosting events on our sites, a barbeque was held at our Henderson headquarters, where an informative “R U OK?” presentation was provided by Civmec’s Group Manager HSEQ. The presentation stressed the importance of starting conversations with those around us, and making mental health a priority. Employees were also reminded about the resources available to them, such as Civmec’s confidential Employee Assistance Program and our partnership with MATES in Construction.
Civmec remains committed to mental health and wellbeing, and encourages employees to ask, listen, and support one another in their mental health journeys, not just for one day but every day of the year.
