JOHN HENRY GROUP’s Avanti traffic management operation is set to conduct a research survey on the importance of safety and safety qualifications when working on the roadside – and we are inviting you to share your thoughts.
It’s ahead of a new report, which will be published by John Henry Group later this year, based on the results and trends gathered in the survey – all survey responses are anonymous.
“Safety has always been a core value of the John Henry Group and is paramount at the forefront of any project or deployment we undertake,” said Keith Cahill, Avanti’s General Manager.
“We have taken some significant steps to ensure everyone working on and around the highways is protected with the best possible equipment and training.
“I would invite everyone to share their thoughts in our online survey as I would be keen to hear the perceptions of my colleagues within Civil Engineering.”
“The aim of the survey is to understand people’s opinions of where exactly safety fits within the KPI performance scales for people working by the roadside” said Rob Andrews, John Henry Group‘s marketing and communications manager.
“Although we intend to produce a publication at the end of the process, I think the results will demonstrate some interesting trends which we hope will help both our clients and John Henry Group personel understand any philosophical platitudes towards safety, training performance when working on the roadside.
“I am looking forward to seeing the results from this campaign and sharing the results with colleagues within the industry.”
It follows earlier steps by John Henry Group and Avanti to heighten safety awareness, best working practice and worker performance on-site in both engineering and site management, with our new Geo-sight smartphone and cloud technology, as we continue to operate at the forefront of safety and performance within the industry.
Avanti has also installed helmet cams on its workers to record roadside happenings in real-time.
Since 2005, more than 20 people have died on Britain’s roads whilst working to complete civil engineering projects* and the issue remains topical across civil engineering companies globally.
