Abstract :

Fifteen construction workers die by suicide every day nationwide. This statistic alone made it evident to the researchers’ organization that they could not take a passive role in reducing and preventing suicide in the workplace. The struggle was how to do this. There are organizations that researchers were able to learn from and receive guidance from, but it was found that there was no one size fits all program. Each organization is unique, and their needs reflect this. This research maps out how researchers organized this information and implemented suicide prevention efforts within their own organization. The intent is to show what this process looked like for the researchers’ organization so that others can follow some of the same steps and adapt them to their own organizational needs.
