Stamping Out Workforce Abuse: IHE Joins the Cause

  • Tuesday October 24, 2023

The Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) has become the latest organisation to sign the Stamp it Out commitment as we bid to make abuse of our workforce something which is socially unacceptable.

With workforce abuse becoming a subject which is high on the agenda of many within the supply chain Stamp it Out, the industry wide programme designed to eliminate the blight on our sector, have launched a commitment document which it implores all clients and contractors to support and sign.

Good leaders recognise that effective management of roadworker abuse is a key imperative in keeping our people safe and well on the public highway.

When it comes to managing the risk we put our people under when they encounter aggression from members of the road using public we need to stand together as an industry and say, as a collective, that enough is enough.

Over 50% of roadworkers admit that they encounter abuse on a weekly basis with 70% saying that this is something which occurs at least once a month.

Speaking about signing the commitment, Steve Spender, Chief Executive, from IHE said,

‘With many of our members working on ‘live sites’, the importance of safer working is always on our minds. As a Professional Institute it is important for us to get the Stamp it Out message out there to reinforce the importance of this campaign.’

Speaking about the announcement of IHE signing the Stamp it Out commitment, Project Director, Kevin Robinson said,

“In the two and a half years since we founded the Stamp it Out programme we have made considerable progress.

“But it is now the turn of the Client and supply Chain to help us to drive the programme.

‘To see forward thinking organisations, such as IHE, buying into our ethos is something which, as an industry, we should applaud.

“We have developed a reporting tool, designed information board signs which are free to deploy on worksites and are in the process of developing an engaging conflict management training course –now the baton passes to the supply chain and client to adopt them.

“When we see the figures which our own people tell us around the frequency of abuse it is frightening.

“In order that we retain our existing people and make our sector one which is a career of choice to new entrants we must tackle issues such as abuse.”
