Handing out the certificates on behalf of Highways England Chief Executive, Jim O’Sullivan, was Stuart Lovatt, Highways England Strategic Road Safety Lead and Mark Byard, Highways England’s new Health Safety and Wellbeing Director.
Stuart praised the firms’ strong commitment to Highways England’s ‘Driving for Better Business’ campaign and urged all other government contractors to follow their lead as soon as possible.
“Everyone involved in driving for work, both in the private and public sector, needs to stand up and make a difference – and let others see that they are making a difference,” Mr Lovatt told delegates to the recent ‘Safer Highways Summit’, which took place in Birmingham.
“I would like to congratulate Amey and WJ Group, part of the Highways England supply chain, for their hard work in becoming our latest Driving for Better Business Champions. It is so important that all employers do this for the safety, not just of their own staff, but all other road users too.”
