sites with the launch of a hard-hitting DVD and support of a national radio advertising campaign
to coincide with the Highways Agencys
'Safety Week, which runs from 21-27 October 2013.
Ameys DVD Changing Behaviours What Does It Take?
features powerful scenes of near misses and accidents on the motorway and is designed to make employees think about what more they can do to make they keep themselves and other road workers and road users safe
Amey has also given its full support to a national radio campaign, in collaboration with the Highways Agency and other supply chain members, to raise awareness on what road users can do to help keep road workers safe
. The campaign will be featured across commercial radio stations all over the UK and coincides with the European Week for Health and Safety at Work
Said Andy Milner, Ameys Managing Director for Consulting, Rail and Strategic Highways:
Our DVD really drives home the point were trying to make to our staff - that they need to take responsibility for their own safety and that of their teams, and the radio campaign is a great way to raise public awareness of how dangerous the environment we work in can be.
We have an excellent safety record at Amey but are pleased to lead the way with our DVD and support other initiatives, like the radio promotion, that make roads safer for both our workers and the public.
Amey has a long and proud history of strategic highways maintenance
and is responsible for some of Britains most important road networks
, including sections of the M1, M5, M6 and M11.
The company actively promotes health and safety
through its own internal Target Zero Every Day campaign and through regular support of external schemes run by its clients and sub-contractors.
