Depression and anxiety have overtaken musculoskeletal disorders in construction workers. Suicide is the single biggest killer of men under 45. However, male site workers are 3 times more likely to commit suicide than the average male in the UK. (Construction Excellence)
Construction is a very diverse industry that includes activities ranging from mining, quarrying and forestry to the construction of infrastructure and buildings, the manufacture and supply of products, as well as maintenance, operation, and disposal.
Construction output in the UK is more than £110 billion per annum and contributes 7% of GDP (ref. Government Construction Strategy). Approximately a quarter of construction output is public sector and three-quarters is private sector.
There are three main sectors:
- Commercial and social (approximately 45%).
- Residential (approximately 40%).
- Infrastructure (approximately 15%).
Approximately 60% of construction output is new build, whilst 40% is refurbishment and maintenance.
