The event will take place at noon on 22 January 2019 in the Terrace Pavillion in the Commons and will provide a platform for local authority CEOs/heads of paid service, chief constables and chief fire officers to meet and partner with the DfT-backed Driving for Better Business work-related road safety programme.

The summit will feature presentations from:

  • Jim O’Sullivan, chief executive of Highways England
  • Martin Temple, chairman of the Health and Safety Executive

Roads minister Jesse Norman MP said: “The Highways England Driving for Better Business Programme supports the British Road Safety Statement in raising awareness of the importance of work-related road safety.

“Road safety is not just a matter for government. It is an issue that requires support from the public sector, and that means organisations making sure they are compliant with current legislation.”
