The aim of this online virtual summit is to give the broader industry, clients, local and national government an insight into the scale of the problem and the course of action the public highways sector has taken to eliminate the risk.
Road worker abuse is a growing concern on both the local and strategic road networks in the UK as well as the wider highways and transport sectors, affecting the physical and mental health and wellbeing of workers on an alarmingly regular basis. Past incidents have been so severe, they have involved knives, shotguns and crossbows being pulled on workers as they go about their daily tasks.

Safety Directors and Heads of HSW
Operations Directors and Managers
Anyone with responsibility for managing the health & safety of their workforce
