Quanta Services Australia is proud to be a Tier 1 Industry Partner with Mates in Construction. The safety and wellbeing of our employees is core to our values and the way we operate every day, across all of our Operating Units. The Mates in Construction training programs are direct, practical and “speak the language” of our employees – they understand the way we work and the challenges of our industry. Mates in Construction partner with us to provide our people with the skills and understanding to identify and act upon signs of mental distress in their workmates with the aim of suicide prevention. Whilst suicide prevention is the ultimate goal, the benefits of the programme are much broader. By enabling discussion about mental health issues and providing points of connection throughout the workforce, the programme is also effective in better connecting people at a human level. It makes for a safer and happier workplace.
