Mark joined Highways England as Health, Safety and Wellbeing Director in April 2018 where his focus is on the health, safety and wellbeing of road users and road workers. Prior to joining Highways England, Mark spent nearly 20 years in the water industry, most recently as H&S Director at United Utilities based in the North West, and previously at Severn Trent Water where he held various operational management roles, before completing an MSc in Occupational Health and Safety.  Mark’s background in operations is a continuous point of reference as he develops new health, safety and wellbeing strategies.  Since joining Highways England, Mark has developed their new approach to health, safety and wellbeing, ‘Home Safe and Well’ which launched across Highways England and the supply chain in early June.  This approach supports the company’s vision that ‘we want everyone who works with us and everyone who travels on our network to get home safe and well’.
