CLOCS scheme to go nationwide

A newly-formed partnership has been given the role of taking the Construction Logistics & Community Safety (CLOCS) scheme nationwide.

The partnership is led by the South East Centre for the Built Environment (SECBE) and includes the Construction Clients Leadership Group, Build UK, the Considerate Constructors Scheme and procurement group LHC.

The partnership aims to “embed, monitor, promote and expand the CLOCS standard throughout construction sites, companies and suppliers across the UK”.

The CLOCS standard was developed by Transport for London after a spate of cyclists and pedestrians getting killed by construction vehicles in the capital.

SECBE chief executive Derek Rees said: “We are delighted to be leading this partnership which will grow the CLOCS standard across the UK.  By becoming a CLOCS champion, those responsible for construction can demonstrate their commitment to protecting employees and members of the public, within and beyond the hoardings.   Working in partnership, we will be able to engage with the whole industry to ensure a road safety culture and a common standard are embedded right through the supply chain”.
