SHL!ve Unveils Worksite Safety School

A new interactive hub which enables delegate to get ‘up close and personal’ with the latest technology is to debut at next year’s Safer Highways organised SH L!VE event.

The Work Site Safety School-delivered in association with Highway Care, will feature the latest safety technology from across the supply chain alongside a series of insightful presentations and best practice technical briefings. Supported by several leading organisations, the aspiration of this external display is to showcase a collaborative approach to improve health, safety and wellbeing across both the local and strategic networks.

The event will take place on June 8th and 9th at the world-class Evolution London, situated at the heart of Battersea Park.

Occupying a space of over 400sqm, the Work Site Safety School will see different interactive sessions take place over the two days of the event. Adrian Tatum, Development Director of Safer Highways said: “This fusion of insightful content with the latest technology and best practice approaches to health, safety and wellbeing, has been designed to help the supply chain deliver safer worksites on both the local and strategic networks, utilising the latest innovation. This highlights the progressive approach SH L!ve has fostered in its mission to truly unite the sector around a common goal of improved standards and health, safety and wellbeing for those who work upon and travel on our networks.”

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.
