HTMA to debate road worker safety at SIB

Highways Reporters

The Highways Term Maintenance Association (HTMA) will lead a debate around road worker safety at this year’s Highways SIB (Seeing is Believing).

Highways SIB is Europe’s only event for indoor showcasing of highway products as well as outdoor demonstrations in all lighting conditions. The event is taking place at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicestershire from 9-10 November.

The HTMA is the trade organisation which represents the service providers who currently look after around 80% of the highway network within the United Kingdom. Its members are some of the best known consulting engineers, construction companies and service providers in the UK.

The Association will put together an expert panel to highlight the issue of road worker safety with the subject discussed as part of the event’s integrated conference.

Executive director Geoff Allister OBE said: “HTMA is pleased to support Highways SIB (Seeing is Believing) in 2016. This event will be an excellent opportunity for HTMA to communicate our key messages about the importance of road worker safety to a wide audience of decision makers and practitioners. We intend to use SIB to build on the legacy from our successful Roadworkers 2015 Safety Summit to help drive further safety improvements throughout the highways industry.”

This year’s event is taking place at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicestershire from 9-10 November and exhibitors will be given increased visibility via the introduction of a two-way street with companies invited to display their products.

To make things even easier products will be highlighted in clearly defined zones that are the most relevant to participating exhibitors. The introduction of designated drop-off points and a new SIB App will ensure that visitors are encouraged to take a closer look at the products and services on display. The zones (subject to change) are: Maintenance matters; Making our mark; Safety in action; Signage solutions; A smarter network; Lighting the way – which will complement the popular showpiece demonstrations taking place on the fully marked motorway area of the track.

Highways SIB (Seeing is Believing) is brought to you by Highways Magazine – the UK’s ONE and only magazine dedicated to the highway maintenance and traffic management industry – and Smart Highways Magazine – the UK’s only ITS and advanced traffic management magazine.
