Oregon Hard Hats with Heart
Together we can make a difference
It’s no secret that industrial careers are hard work.
They are physically and mentally demanding requiring early start times, long hours, strenuous activity and often, eating what’s on hand rather than what’s healthy. We also know that cardiovascular disease disproportionately effects construction industries. That’s why the American Heart Association created an initiative to engage industrial workers across the country and inspire them to live healthier, longer lives.
Key Risk Factors Include:
1 out of 4 construction workers are obese
1 out of 4 construction workers use tobacco
Nearly half of all construction workers don’t get enough exercise
1 out of 25 construction workers have diabetes
Hard Hat with Heart Industry Roundtable
In June, we hosted a virtual Hard Hats with Heart Industry Roundtable with professionals from the local construction industry and community partners with the goal of exchanging ideas and creating a strategy to address employee wellness. The roundtable was led by Dave Drinkward, President & CEO of Hoffman Construction and our 2021 Heart Ball Chair. The group voted to focus on mental wellbeing, including stress management, suicide prevention and chronic disease management. We are working with partners across the industry and will convene again in October.
