Highway Engineers: Courting Trouble?

  • Wednesday October 16, 2019

IHE Southern Branch Seminar
Ashburton Hall, The Castle, Winchester.

Wednesday 23 October 2019

We live in an age when accountability for actions is foremost in people’s minds with recourse to litigation (criminal or civil) being more readily pursued than ever before.

Highway engineers are not exempt and whether one holds a junior or a managerial position within a company or highway authority, one can still be held individually accountable for a decision made or design agreed at any time during the process of managing the infrastructure.

The IHE Southern Branch has gathered eminent speakers and experts in their field to discuss litigation and liability – including Gerard Forlin QC (a global expert) and Dr Jim Golby. Together they will address the topic of ‘work-related road risk with the management of operational highway works’, and other aspects that require the highway engineer to heed the requirements set down in law.

This seminar is relevant to all highway engineers and their managers, regardless of their seniority status, as well as others who might be implicated in the decision making process.

A full day CPD seminar with programme, refreshments and buffet lunch is included. Cost per delegate £55 with discounts for group bookings.
