Overseers of the CLOCS (Construction Logistics and Cyclist Safety) initiative have announced 100 organisations and individual construction projects have now shown their commitment to improving the safety of vulnerable road users through becoming CLOCS Champions – just two years after the initiative was launched.
The initiative was set up to encourage the construction industry to focus on three streams of work to reduce the risk of a collision between construction vehicles and vulnerable road users, such as cyclists and pedestrians. These are: improving vehicle safety, addressing the imbalance between the treatment of on-site and on-road safety, and encouraging wider adoption of best practice across the industry through adoption of a common national standard.
CLOCS Champions are organisations and individual construction projects which have committed to implementing the CLOCS Standard within their own organisations and across their supply chains.
The growing list of Champions is made up of fleet operators, construction clients and developers, as well as organisations that cannot actively implement the
Standard based on the nature of their business, but are committed to support its application and purpose.
The current list of CLOCS Champions includes a variety of organisations, from Thames Tideway Tunnel and Travis Perkins, to the London Borough of Camden and Skanska.
