Safer Highways are please to unveil the external exhibition plan for SH L!ve 2022. With internal space already at over 80% capacity, with still 16 months to go until the event, the external area provides a real opportunity for organisations to showcase their innovations in real time situations.
The event is set to go ahead on June 8th and 9th 2022 at Evolution London in Battersea Park, SH L!ve is made up of indoor and outdoor exhibition zones showcasing the latest innovation, products, concepts and services in the health, safety and wellbeing sector, alongside several unique feature areas that will bring all the latest insight. It could be one of the first times the industry gets together in the highways industry after a series of cancelled events in 2021 due to the on-going pandemic and lockdown restrictions.
Built around a keynote theatre which will feature a number of industry leaders over the two days, the event will also include the Skanska Safer Road Users Hub as well as the Morgan Sindall Hazard School, delivering the latest training and guidance as well as debate, discussion, technical presentations and case studies-taking interactive learning in the sector to a new level. Also, Safer Highways continues to build on its significant progress in the areas of mental health and wellbeing with the Jacobs One Million Lives and Skanska Wellbeing Hubs that will sit alongside a Highways England hub and Associations Hub, to help reflect the shows reach across all sectors of the industry and both the strategic and local road networks. SH L!ve is being developing into the UK’s only Highways Centric Industry Wide Safety Stand down event.
The event will bring together directors, managers and operatives working on both the strategic and local networks to help take forward the Safer Highways initiative of creating a safer road network for both road workers and road users. Safer Highways’ work is focusing on helping the highways sector become the 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.
It remains the only FREE TO ATTEND industry-wide event targeted at those who are responsible for carrying out works on our public highways safely.

Kevin Robinson, Chief Executive of Safer Highways said:
“We release the outdoor plan today for the industry after offering an increasing number of members a chance to select their outdoor space for what we expect to be another successful SH L!ve. Next year’s event has been built around developing it into the UK’s only Highways Centric Industry Wide Safety Stand down event, bringing together company briefings with a real interactive learning experience both inside and out throughout the two days.
