Mental Health Report Launches 2nd December from the Cotton Centre

Launching at Safer Highways’ Mental Health Summit, the 2021 “Thriving at Work” report looks at the provision of mental health support by employers across the highways sector.

Safer Highways, the industry wide Health and Safety Collective, is launching its 2021 Annual “Thriving at Work” survey on Thursday 2nd December at its Mental Health Summit being hosted by member organisation Jacobs, at its European flagship office in London.

Now in its third year, the Safer Highways survey has provided free access to employers to an instant gap analysis report on mental health in the workplace enabling a cycle of continuous improvement. It is based upon the six core and four enhanced standards of the 2017 Government “Thriving at Work” survey, authored by Lord Dennis Stephenson and Paul Farmer OBE, which sets out expectations for employers around meeting a minimum standard for support of mental health in the workplace.

“Safer Highways are exceptionally grateful to one of our trailblazing members Jacobs for hosting the summit this year in their large and accessible venue,” said Safer Highways CEO Kevin Robinson. “We have always enjoyed a very collaborative relationship with Jacobs around the work both organisations are doing to create a safer sector and actively support positive mental health – particularly through the ‘Thriving at Work’ survey and Jacobs’ One Million Lives campaign.”

“We are delighted to see member organisations truly pull together to deliver such a vital report, something which offers real value to the industry, and we encourage everyone to explore the One Million Lives web app and resources,” he added.

In December 2020, Jacobs launched One Million Lives – a free mental health check-in tool to enhance users' understanding of their current state of mind and provide proactive strategies for personal mental health development. Since the tool and supporting resources launched, there have been more than 14,000 check-ins.

Registration for tickets to the summit has now closed. All current ticket holders for the event, who were successful in the ballot, will receive further instructions about attendance in the coming days..

Jacobs’ spacious London Cottons Centre office is conveniently located on the banks of the River Thames next to excellent transport links at London Bridge. The venue will adhere to necessary COVID-19 protocols in place at the time of the event. As with the 2020 Mental Health Summit, a virtual live stream event will be offered should further restrictions require this.
