Safer Highways, the organisation that was set up to promote the latest thinking and best practice in health, safety and wellbeing, has launched its third Thriving at Work Survey.
The survey aims to once again consider the standards of provision around mental health in the workplace.
Last year the organisation sampled the 250 of the biggest organisations who work, not only on the strategic road network, but also who serve to maintain local roads to establish where the sector sits against the government’s Thriving at Work report – published in 2017.
But this year, Safer Highways has signalled its intentions tp widen its ambitions. “As time moves on and standards improve we also recognise the need to take the survey further and indeed to benchmark ourselves against other sectors. That is why this year’s survey will do exactly that,” said Kevin Robinson, Chief Executive of Safer Highways.
Kindly Sponsored by Morgan Sindall Infrastructure, Safer Highways has now been able to develop a new tool to not only vertically cross-slice the highways sector but also horizontally make a base line comparison between ourselves and other sectors which include Aviation, Rail, Maritime, Utilities, Construction, Fleet and Logistics and indeed extend itsreach into the pharmaceutical and secondary education sectors with the ambitious goal being to effectively be able to benchmark the entire UK plc over the coming years.
“We realise that this will not be easy and indeed are grateful for the support we have already received from the above sectors. One of the key things we, as a collective, wanted to achieve from this years survey was an instant improvement plan for all organisations taking part.
“This has been developed in collaboration with our partners at Mind and, we hope, will provide an opportunity for organisations to begin the process of effecting real change around mental health instantaneously and not months down the line, We hope, in some way, that this will contribute to a continuous improvement in not only awareness but also organisations approach to workplace mental health.” Mr Robinson added.
Within seconds of completing the survey and adding contact details, the user will be emailed a comprehensive report which can be presented right unto board level as to how you, as an organisation can effect real organisational change.
The deadline to complete the survey is December 2nd.
