Build Health

Your Employee Assistance Programme

Introducing the Mental Health & wellbeing support programme from The Construction Industry Federation. CIF is dedicated to supporting its members and their employees’ mental health, during Covid-19 and as they return to work. Our 24/7 Mental Health Support Programme, enabled by Laya Healthcare and their exclusive health & wellbeing partners, Spectrum.Life, helps you to help your employees.

“Research shows that 10 people a week in Ireland take their own lives- 8 out of these 10 are men. The construction sector is 96% male. We know from feedback we have received that workers in the construction sector are part of these statistics. As an industry, we have focussed a lot of our effort in the past at managing safety issues- recently, we have realised that we need to give time to managing people’s wellbeing.” 

Dermot Carey, Director of Safety and Training, CIF

Supporting Construction Workers during Covid-19

Mental Health and Wellbeing 

We fully recognise that the threat posed by the Coronavirus may cause anxiety among construction workers and their families. At times of stress we work better with support. Our EAP team is here to help manage employees’  mental wellbeing during these times while also providing them with information and resources to make their day-to-day lives a little easier. The service is also available to employees’ family members over 16 years.
