Generally, I never reflect anything on LinkedIn connected to Webinars attending in this pandemic time, but this time I want to say something about the recent webinar organized by the IOSH Logistics and Retail Group;
Special thanks to Ghitta Basson for conducting this informative session. The statistics shown and discussed related to Mental Health were an alarming factor for all of us working for construction sites.
This webinar focused on the link between Mental Health & Safety on Site, which enlightens me more about the role we all need to play during the challenging COVID19 pandemic situation.
Comprehensive discussions about threatening factors like life changes, physical, emotional, environmental, and changes at work were interesting and applicable in our ongoing life.

Ghitta’s Pandemic Sress Managemenet workshop was very interesting and I love the way she presents. The meditation at the end was amazing.

Ghitta has a simple, easy-to-follow presentation style and really gives good, real-life explanations that people can resonate with. Because of her easy steps laid out to implement, I can definitely see myself making some serious changes in my life to help me cope better.
A. Atkinson, Group Leader, 2019, London
I really enjoyed the Safety in Mind session. It was interactive, got us all thinking and I think most of us now realise the seriousness of our mental health more than we did before. The statistics were eye-opening and we never really thought about how our mental health can actually affect our work and thus how safe we are on site. I realised there’s a lot of things I now need to pay more attention to and look after myself or change in my life.
M. Boyles, Site Supervisor, 2018, London
The Burnout session showed me signs to look out for and I realised I was heading straight to burnout. I could already feel I wasn’t myself, but I didn’t realise how bad it could get. The session prompted me to ask for support from my manager and to take much-needed time out to allow myself to recover before I actually have a mental breakdown. If it wasn’t for this session, I probably would have been booked off work for months and I just wouldn’t be able to afford it.
GS, Scaffolder, 2018, London
This has been an amazing day! Thank you so much!
I work on the night shift on a construction site and it often feels like nobody cares about the night shift. Thankfully my company booked Ghitta to deliver a few sessions over a few weeks.
She would be there from 6 pm to midnight delivering workshops to us that we have never before attended, and I’ve been working in construction for almost 40 years.
Not only did she do excellent presentations, but she also got us cookies and crisps – probably to stop us from falling asleep.
The vibe n=in the room was amazing and I cannot thank Ghitta enough! please come back soon!
M. Stone, Night-shift Operative, 2019, London
This has been the best paid hour of sleep I have ever had! My supervisor told us to attend a relaxation session. We all laughed when we went up to the session and weren’t going to say no to an hour off the job. There were yoga mats all over the floor, we were told to kick off our shoes and fall asleep. The lady had an amazing voice and even though there were a few snorers, it didn’t really bother me that much. I have never relaxed this much in my life! Our entire team has booked up to do this again next week and I think we’ll continue doing this as long as it is running.
S. McCarthy, General Operative, 2017, London
I have attended a few of Ghitta’s workshops now and she is a great presenter with a lot of passion for what she does. Her workshops are always clear and to the point. It is interesting and engaging and she always encourages individual thought and contemplation. I always leave feeling like I have learned something new and have clear instructions of things I can implement to make a change in my life. I’m looking forward to the next workshop.
J. Lowe, Safety Manager, 2019, London
Thank you Ghitta for a really useful, informative and thought-provoking session today on the IOSH webinar on the topic of mental health first aid – a topic very close to my heart that I am passionate about.
L. Johnson, Auditor, 2021, UK
A very interesting session on sleep, why we need it, how it affects our mental health, and what we can do to improve our sleep. The power-nap was particularly amazing! I would definitely recommend everyone to attend this session as the starting point to changing or looking after their mental health.
