Safer Highways Thriving at Work Survey Launched
The recent Prime Ministers review of UK Mental Health within UK Business, undertaken by Lord Dennis Stevenson and Paul Farmer, led to the production of the ‘Thriving At Work’ report.
At the recent Mental Health Summit, in the House of Commons, the report was presented and the Highways Sector nationally has commenced a benchmarking exercise to understand its position regarding the adoption of the ‘Core’ and ‘Enhanced’ standards laid out within the Prime Ministers report.
As an industry we are asking you to you please take the time to complete the confidential survey which is being requested of yourself and over 350 of your peer organisations that employ over 250 people working in the highways sector every day.
Your survey results will be kept strictly confidential and thus we would please request you answer with total honesty, as this is about producing a realistic understanding of our national position collectively
The benchmarking will take place over the coming 3 month period, following which there will be an event held in the House of Lords to present and discuss the outcomes of the sector position.
In doing so you will enable us to effectively become the first industry to benchmark against the recommendations of the report and show just how much progress we, as a sector, have made.
We now invite you, as an industry, to take part in the survey, which has already been sent to over 300 of the sectors biggest employers.
The only criteria are as follows:
- You must employ over 250 people
- You must work predominantly within the Highways, Construction and Infrastructure Industries
OR your organisations must employ a significant number of people who satisfy either or both of the above conditions
The survey is currently being considered by the government as a benchmarking tool to measure the effectiveness of our current mental health strategies in the workplace
You have the opportunity to be pioneers in this space
