With 1 in 2 of our workforce admitting that they face abuse whilst going about their daily works, Kevin Robinson, CEO of Safer Highways, the industry body at the forefront of the initiative emphasised why now, more than ever, there is a real need to tackle the issue, starting with the high level summit, he said,
"Workforce abuse has long been a blight on our sector, having a massive impact on the perception of those looking to enter our industry.
"As a collective we must take positive steps to address the issue, but that can only come with stakeholder and contractor engagement and as such I am delighted to see both represented at this cross sector event.
"Until we present a united approach and a clear pathway to making abuse socially unacceptable this will always be a challenge.
