Congratulations to our Highways Champions

28 February 2018

Highways England has announced the finalists in their first Health, Safety and Wellbeing Awards and we are delighted to see that two of the finalists in the award for ‘Excellence in Road User Safety Achievement’ are Driving for Better Business Champions .

The Awards will be given to individuals, teams, projects and companies in the supply chain and across Highways England who make a significant contribution to our first imperative – that no one should be harmed when travelling or working on the strategic road network.

Chief Executive Jim O’Sullivan said:

“I am delighted that we now have an award scheme dedicated to health, safety and wellbeing achievements. The quality of submissions has been very high – there is clearly great work being done within our business and the supply chain.”

Entries were judged by a panel of senior subject matter experts, and judges from the supply chain and we are delighted to see that two of the finalists in the award for ‘Excellence in Road User Safety Achievement’ are Driving for Better Business Champions – they are Skanska , one of our longest standing Business Champions and Clancy Group , our most recent Champion.

This recognition has particular importance at this time with Highways England also announcing recently that from now on, all contractors in their supply chain are going to have to demonstrate that they are managing their work-related road safety to an appropriate standard.
