To raise the profile of wellness and mental health amongst its staff and spread the message right across the materials handling industry, Jungheinrich Australia is supporting the Australian non-profit suicide prevention organisation – R U OK?
Celebrating its 11th national day of action this year, R U OK? is based on the premise that, as a first step to reducing the number of deaths by suicide each year, we should all get into the habit of asking the people we know – our family, colleagues and friends – if they are alright.
For Jungheinrich Australia, the more people who hear this message the better. The company is branding all of its service vans with R U OK? Day and 500 of its customers’ forklifts will also take on the cause.
This year R U OK? Day is September 12. Like organisations around the country, on that day Jungheinrich Australia is holding a morning tea to introduce the topic of mental health and suicide prevention.
