CLOCS - Construction Logistics and Community Safety
CLOCS brings the construction logistics industry together to revolutionise the management of work related road risk (WRRR) and ensure a road safety culture is embedded across the industry, to ensure pedestrians, cyclists, motorcycles and other users who share the roads with construction vehicles are protected.
CLOCS has developed the Standard for construction logistics: Managing work related road risk, a common standard for use by the construction logistics industry. Implemented by construction clients through contracts, this Standard provides a framework enabling the the management of road safety by the industry in a way that can be adhered to in a consistent way by fleet operators.
A CLOCS Champion is an organisation committed to actively promoting and implementing the CLOCS National Standard, including construction clients and contractors who demonstrably implement the CLOCS Standard on their projects.
Each Champion submits a CLOCS Implementation Plan setting out a statement of corporate intent towards implementation of and compliance with the CLOCS Standard.
CLOCS Monitoring Checklist
CLOCS monitoring teams conduct assessments of nominated construction sites - a CLOCS Site Compliance Monitoring Visits and the Site Checklist have been developed in partnership with CLOCS Partners Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS).
The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme that promotes best practice for commercial vehicle operators.
FORS encompasses all aspects of safety, efficiency, and environmental protection by encouraging and training fleet operators to measure, monitor and improve performance.
FORS provides accreditation pathways for operators of any type, and for those organisations that award contracts and specify transport requirements. To have a look at a summary of the key benefits of FORS accreditation, see the ‘Five Reasons to go FORS’ leaflet here.
