SAFER ROAD WORKERS, SAFER ROAD USERS.
That the highways sector becomes a beacon of best practice for the good management of all health, safety and wellbeing issues, and that other sectors look to us as leaders in this field.
We want to drive forward and constantly innovate, never standing still and ensure we always strive to be seen as pioneers in our sector.
We want to look back in years to come and be proud to see that we have made a lasting difference for everyone who works in our industry at every level.
SH MAGAZINE ISSUE 7 NOW READY TO DOWNLOAD
The last few months have been what I can, at best describe as challenging, although I am sure many of you can find more eloquent words for our experiences. The phrase, unprecedented, has been much over-used, but actually lets be honest that is the only way to describe our lives for the last four months. Little did we know when this seemed like a localised issue restricted to a small province in China it would have such devastating effects upon the western world - but it did. As it crept slowly into Italy and then established a stranglehold on firstly Spain and then latterly most of Western Europe we found ourselves staring into the abyss of something none of us could have ever legsitlated for.
SH L!VE 2020 GOES DIGITAL
Owing to the current uncertainty around mass gatherings in the coming months and as a duty of care to everyone who would have been attending this year’s SH L!ve, we have decided that the upcoming event will now take place digitally this September with the the physical experiential event now taking place on 21st and 22nd April 2021.
SH L!ve digital week will take place week commencing 20th September 2020.
THRIVING AT WORK SURVEY LAUNCHED
Today marks another landmark occasion on the journey Safer Highways has travelled with the launch of its second annual ‘Thriving at Work’ Survey into the standards of provision around workplace mental health.
Last year we sampled the 100 biggest organisations who work, not only on the strategic road network, but also who serve to maintain our local roads to establish where we, as a sector, sit against the government report - published in 2017.
This year we have widened our ambitions.
OUR CHARITY PARTNER
The Lighthouse Trust supports education and training initiatives within the industry and if someone is so badly injured or suffering from an illness which means they cannot return to their normal work, we can provide access to finance to re-train within our sector. We also finance socially disadvantaged young people and young offenders through education programmes to get into construction
Our health and safety fund finances innovative and implementable ideas to improve health or safety in the work environment and on site.
