First images of Stamp it Out worksite signage unveiled

Safer Highways are delighted to unveil the first images of the signage which forms a crucial part of the Stamp it Out campiagn produced in partnership with Nuneaton signs.

With a bold aspiration to make the signs available to all contractors and with deployment becoming a reality by the end of 2023 the partnership between Stamp it Out and Nuneation Signs will involve the production of a series of white labelled information board templates for organisations to place at the start of roadworks carrying a zero tolerance message around abuse of roadworkers.

The signs form the latest development for the Stamp it Out campaign following the successful pilot of the abuse reporting app in Southampton which moves into a phased roll out across the supply chain in 2023.

Speaking about the unveiling of the initial template, Stamp it Out project lead, Kevin Robinson said,

“Abuse of the workforce has long been a challenge our industry needed to tackle with a ‘front foot’ approach.

“Through the Stamp it Out programme we aim to drive forward in making abuse of the workforce societally socially unacceptable.

“Our app and central repository for the gathering of data was the first step on that journey, but our biggest challenge has always been to educate the workforce that abuse is not ‘part of the job’ and needs to be called out.

“Through the deployment of signs, which aspirationally we hope to see every worksite across England and Wales adopt, we are, as an industry, showing those we put to work on the public highway that abuse will not be tolerated.”

Founded in 1982 Nuneaton Signs are a social enterprise who provide meaningful jobs and training for those with disabilities. With a turnover now in excess of £5 Million, the organisation now has 73 employees, 69% have a disability, many of whom would have found employment a challenge to come by. Nuneaton Signs are also incredibly proud to be in their second year of running a Supported Intern Program helping those leaving SEND education gain valuable genuine work experience and life skills.

Speaking about the partnership and production of the signage, Michelle York, Commercial Director at Nuneaton signs explained why they were keen to become involved in the Stamp it Out programme, and the aligned values of the two organisations.

"We were honoured when Stamp It Out approached us to be their nominated signage supplier for this project, as we firmly believe that everyone should feel safe and valued in their work.

All of us deserve to be valued and it is time we celebrate our differences.”

As the campaign gathers pace in 2023 templates for the signage will be made available through the Stamp it Out website and continued rollout of the app culminating in a ministerial summit at the House of Lords in June.

The sign will now be submitted to the Department for Transport who already agreed to fast track it's the process of it being approved as a part of Chapter 8 regulations.
