A sad reality of the parking industry is that parking structures are sometimes used for suicides or suicide attempts. According to a 2016 IPI survey of members, half the organizations had experienced a suicide or suicide attempt at one of their parking facilities.
This archived webinar covers a wide range of topics, from installing physical barriers and signage that offers crisis line information to on-the-scene intervention and post-traumatic care for employees and witnesses. It also addresses how to effectively manage media attention that can unintentionally glamorize suicide with tragic consequences.
Join Gary Cudney, PE, of Carl Walker, Inc.; Jim Sayre, CAPP, of the University of Iowa; and Larry Cohen, CAPP, of the Lancaster Parking Authority, for this 60-minute webinar.
- Understand the risks of suicide in parking structures
- Learn suicide prevention methods, solutions, and costs, plus the potential costs of doing nothing
- Glean knowledge from the University of Iowa’s parking structure safety barrier study
