Road Safety Week

Every year, millions of people around the UK get involved to take action for safer roads.

Road Safety Week is a great opportunity to focus everyone’s attention on making roads safer so that everyone can travel in a safe and healthy way.

The theme of Road Safety Week 2021 is ROAD SAFETY HEROES - Celebrating the heroic work of road safety professionals, and explaining how we can all play a part in making journeys safer for everyone.

Today's focus is on road safety professionals, so we wanted to highlight the amazing work of our Operatives, out on the Highways and working on roadside verges.

They regularly complete work on dangerous stretches of road (often at night) where safety is paramount, ensuring due diligence is taken to mitigate risk of injury and road incidents/accidents.

ATM manage work-related road risk through rigorous policies and procedures to help prevent accidents and keep the roads a safe space for our employees and other road users.

More than 20,000 workers are injured in road construction zones each year and road crashes are the leading cause of death for children and young people worldwide, that's why taking part in Brake charity's Road Safety Week is important to us.

Thank you to our plethora of Road Safety Heroes at ATM, including our outstanding supply chain partners.

Below are just a handful of our Ops on a recent team building day, but we give thanks to each and every team member today and everyday!
