Morgan Sindall to continue support of Mental Health Programme

Morgan Sindall Infrastructure to continue as principal supporter of Safer Highways Mental Health Programme.

Safer Highways are delighted to announce that Morgan Sindall Infrastructure are to continue their support of the Road to Wellbeing Mental Health programme into a fourth year.

Culminating in the Thriving at Work Report Launch at the House of Lords, which this year will be held as a breakfast on the 2nd of December, the programme was the first to effectively benchmark employers around the support they provided in the workplace around mental health.

Uniquely, the free to access survey also provides all employers who complete the 10 question survey with a completely anonymous gap analysis report, with the sole aim of driving improvement and making a difference for every individual we, as an industry, put to work.

Since its inception in 2018, the programme has been at the forefront of driving change around the subject and its impact across the sector has been considerable.

Speaking about the decision to continue the support, Martin Worthington, SHEQ Director of Morgan Sindall Infrastructure and current Safer Highways Chairman said,

"Once again we are proud to be sponsors of the Safer Highways Mental Health programme and summit, it is truly amazing how much this work has contributed to improving awareness and understanding of the challenges in the highways sector and the wider industry. Safer Highways has been a leader in promoting mental health during the pandemic both in its support for individuals and organisations."

Echoing the comments Kevin Robinson, Chief Executive of Safer Highways said,

"Mental Health was the programme which earned Safer Highways our stripes within the sector, it was the first time an establishment borne out of industry stepped over the line and really dared to challenge the established norm at a time when talking about the subject was relatively new and indeed an unknown territory.

"Both Martin and Morgan Sindall stepped up to the plate all those years ago because they believed this was the right thing to do for our people.

"Four years on and look where we are. This, for me, and the broader Safer Highways community, is not a sponsorship but instead a journey where we joined hands, and collectively brought together an industry and now we see our works being emulated across many sectors."

The current Safer Highways Mental Health Survey is now open and closes on 31st October.
