Ways to Identify and Combat Stress

Published 03/02/2019

In the construction industry there are many opportunities to make measurable progress, whether it is the civil works commencing or scaffolding being put up. A lot of importance is placed on being safe as well as constantly being aware of many things occurring, simultaneously.

How each person responds or reacts to the many responsibilities on site can vary. Some people are predisposed to handle pressure in different ways to others that would prefer to avoid it altogether. 

In Australia there are thousands of construction projects underway that vary in size and scale. Although we have organisations such as Safe Work Australia keeping us informed about safety and compliance, those within the industry physically carrying out construction work, must remain aware and vigilant in maintaining the highest degree of safety for themselves and their co-workers.
