Easternwell flies flags in support of Mates in Construction

Easternwell's field teams proudly supported Mates in Construction who teamed up with R U OK? for Fly the Flag Day.

Mates in Construction is Australia’s leading industry suicide prevention organisation focusing on raising awareness, building capacity, providing help and research. Last year, Mates in Construction had 450 sites participate in Fly the Flag.

Yesterday, 20 Easternwell remote sites participated in Fly the Flag for suicide prevention to remind each other that it’s important to ask your mates ‘are you okay?’.

Easternwell’s Operations Manager, Well Servicing, Steve Pulford said that supporting Mates in Construction’s Fly the Flag Day was a simple and effective way to encourage our field teams to look out for one another.

“Due to the remoteness of our operations, it is important that our crews feel supported and to ask the question if things don’t seem right with one of their mates. The good thing is our people believe they are part of a family that look out for one another.”

As a not-for-profit organisation, Mates in Construction provides valuable support to those working in the construction industry to connect and protect people from suicide.
