Why Stamp it Out Now? Webinar
As part of the ongoing Stamp it Out Campaign which has brought the highways sector together as one to publicly put an end to road worker abuse and incursions into work sites, Safer Highways are delighted to host the latest in our series of webinars around protecting out people entitled “Why Stamp it Out Now?” The aim of this online virtual summit is to give the broader industry, client and local and national government an insight into the scale of the problem and the cause of action the public highways sector has taken to eliminate the risk.
Featuring a host of industry leaders from many major tier 1 and tier 2 contractors the online summit, to be held on the 10th February 2021 will serve as the final push for our online petition to reclassify road workers and award them key work status.
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.
The online summit will also act as a preview to the full strategy launch which will happen as part of respect our roadworkers week in October 2021. Places at the summit will be strictly limited and those interested in attending are advised to register early.
Who should attend:
Anyone responsible for carrying out works in a safe manner across the highways network
Safety Directors and Heads of HSW
Operations Directors and Managers
Anyone with responsibility for managing the health & safety of their workforce
