This episode is all about moving our minds from the concept of managing risk to building networks of safety when it comes to suicide prevention and mental wellbeing. In “Building Networks of Safety” host Kim Borrowdale talks with Bruce Turley and Edmund McCombs.
Bruce is a well-known LivingWorks contributor and has been part of the team for 20 years, working on design, development, and evaluation. He walks us through the evolution of suicide first aid training and discusses how approaches have shifted over the past decades to current best practices in training.
Edmund McCombs is the Head of External Partnerships and General Manager, Social Sustainability for global property and construction company LendLease. Edmund pulls back the curtain on how a global workplace in the property and construction industry is at the forefront of shifting from incident management of physical safety to thinking about supporting staff as people bringing their whole selves to work daily and what that means for their physical and mental health and safety.
