Safer Highways 2019

A year round movement leading the way to a stronger, safer culture

Following on from our highly successful year in 2018; 2019 promises a 12-month programme of events and support that will drive awareness and, more importantly, change in our industry.

Our mission is to promote strong leadership and effective communication across all levels of the sector, sharing best practice and innovation, and driving further improvement for the benefit of all our employees.

The theme for the 2019 Safer Highways Programme is Wellbeing, with a particular focus on Mental Health. We will be not only launching our inaugural Mental Health Summit, which is being held at the House of Commons on 20th June, but later on in the year we will be conducting the very first industry-wide ‘Road to Better Wellbeing Survey which will benchmark our sector’s implementation of the recommendations of the Stevenson-Farmer ‘Thriving at Work Report.’
