Suicide Risk and Occupational Hazard

Semester: Spring 2024

Presentation description

This study aims to identify occupations held by suicide decedents at their time of death that made them particularly vulnerable to exposure to hazardous environmental conditions (e.g. at high risk of exposure to smoke, dust, toxic chemicals, high temperatures, etc.). Prior research has identified a link between air pollution and temperature exposures and an increased risk of suicide. Certain occupations such as those located outdoors or those involving mineral extraction may increase suicide.
