Leadership Engagement Event for the Public Sector

22nd January 2019 – Houses of Parliament

Highways England and the Driving for Better Business programme will be holding a major event at the Houses of Parliament on 22nd January 2019 for the senior leaders of public sector organisations including the fire and police services, local authorities and PCCs.

Driving for Better Business supports the Government’s British Road Safety Statement. This event will share vital information for those organisations in the public sector who promote improved road safety, and must therefore lead by example.

“The Highways England Driving for Better Business Programme supports the British Road Safety Statement in raising awareness of the importance of work-related road safety.”

“Road safety is not just a matter for government and the public sector. Is it an issue that requires support from the private sector, and that means businesses making sure they are compliant with current legislation.”

Presentations by key speakers from Highways England and the Health and Safety Executive will show exactly how the public sector is required by law to comply, and demonstrate the resources that are available to help reduce costs within your own organisations, as well as supporting colleagues responsible for promoting road safety locally.

The event will be held from 1pm to 3pm in the Terrace Pavillion at the Palace of Westminster, preceded by lunch and networking from 12.15pm.

It will feature presentations from:

  • Jim O’Sullivan, Chief Executive of Highways England
  • Martin Temple, Chairman of the Health and Safety Executive
  • Mark Phillips, Chief Executive of RSSB
  • Sheena Ramsey Chief Executive of Gateshead Council
  • James Haluch, Managing Director of Amey Highways
  • Sean Bone-Knell, Director of Operations at Kent FRS
  • Detective Chief Superintendent Paul Keasey, Head of NRPIF
  • Alison Hernandez, PCC, Devon and Cornwall

The Summit is one of the first steps in Highways England’s strategic goal to work more closely with its public sector partners to help ensure that we are able to lead from the front in reducing work related road risk, demonstrate our compliance with current legislation and also how we can make significant budgetary savings.  In doing so we can all work together to improve compliance amongst all users of the road network.
