Emotional health ensures that individuals have control over their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Industries such as construction, place additional pressures on workers and their families as they are essential workers. The Rosendin Foundation understands that instilling a sense of connectedness helps people, especially in the construction industry, achieve positive emotional health. As workers and families face unprecedented levels of unemployment, concerns about respiratory health, exposure to COVID-19, and coping with managing it all at once with limited outside assistance, emotional health and well-being are critical for surviving the next few years.
Before the COVID pandemic, 1 in 6 Americans went hungry. In 2021, Feeding America projected 42 million people (1 in 8) including 13 million children (1 in 6), may experience food insecurity. Globally, the United National (UN) World Food Programme’s live Hunger Map predicts 957 million people across 93 countries who do not have enough to eat. Food scarcity, high unemployment, and other factors are depleting our food banks. Our local communities need additional assistance to overcome the food insecurity crisis, and that is where The Rosendin Foundation can provide some support.
Occupational health is dedicated to the well-being and safety of employees in the workplace, with a strong focus on injury prevention and employee education. The Rosendin Foundation seeks to ensure that the construction industry continues to work toward improved health with a commitment to injury prevention and employee education while prioritizing safety.
