HS2 signed up to the Construction and Civil Engineering Industries pledge and five other Responsibility Deal pledges as part of its ongoing commitment to supporting the health, safety and wellbeing of its employers.
Through signing up to these pledges HS2 aims to break new ground to establish innovative, world-class ways of working that set the standard for the rest of the industry, by committing to the promotion of health in construction and setting challenging performance standards for its supply chain.
HS2 Chief Executive, Simon Kirby said:
“Through signing the Responsibility Deal, we recognise the importance the workplace plays in maintaining the mental and physical well-being of our staff.”
Dame Carol Black said:
“We are delighted to have high-profile rail companies like Crossrail and now HS2 joining the Responsibility Deal and we feel sure that this will encourage other rail companies to do the same.”
