Safer Highways have announced that this year’s Wellbeing Forum will be held at the House of Commons on Thursday 20th June.
The event will form the launch pad for our industry-wide “Road to Better Wellbeing” strategy, designed to increase the awareness of wellbeing and mental health across the sector irrespective of the size of organisation.
The day will act as a call to action for all organisations, large and small to participate in the 2019 road to wellbeing survey.
This ambitious project is supported by the major contractors from across the sector and will take the form of a quantitative questionnaire which will be followed with further in-depth qualitative analysis in 2020 as we frame the current state of workplace wellbeing within the highways sector.
Working alongside ‘Mind’ and other leading organisations such as Thames Water and the BMH, this ambitious undertaking will take the form of quantitative and qualitative analysis, developed by leading experts from across the field of wellbeing and led by Clare Forshaw, formerly Head of Centre for Health at the HSE.
We will also be presenting the results of the pilot surveys carried out with selected organisations. The survey will be robust and thorough, yet easily accessible. We will also be launching our ongoing strategy for monitoring wellbeing within the industry.
