Pagabo has joined forces with technology brand Moodbeam to develop a wellbeing tool that looks after the mental health of workers on projects in the built environment. Moodbeam One is the world’s first wearable device, focused on capturing mood in real time through the simple pressing of a button.

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) recently released a report, ‘Understanding Mental Health in the Building Environment‘, which includes statistics that 26% of construction workers had experienced suicidal thoughts and 97% had experienced stress over the past year.

Having been conducted in August 2019, this survey takes no account of the additional pressures from the coronavirus pandemic.
