This free to attend event will run from 10.00am to 3.00pm.

The exhibition includes the latest vehicles from leading manufacturers designed with improved direct vision suitable for use in the urban environment, advice and demonstrations focussed on CLOCS compliance checks and opportunities to view some of the latest safety products and services on offer.

The event is not limited to the construction industry. Operators interested in meeting the requirements of FORS silver or gold, or the CLOCS Standard, will have the opportunity to join guided tours and speak directly with the vehicle manufacturers, relevant equipment and service suppliers, and with representatives from both CLOCS and FORS.

CLOCS at the London Bike Show
Thanks to all those championswho sponsored the London Bike Show this year - we couldn't have organised the event without your support, both financial and in manpower. 100% of sponsors responding to our feedback survey indicated that they would like to participate again next year.

It was great fun as always and, more importantly, an opportunity to offer an ‘Exchanging Places’ experience to the cycling public and their families.  Just under 1,000 men, women and children participated with 96% of people saying that they'll change their riding.  We reached a lot of young people this year too so it is very likely that we’ve also made a significant impact among young pedestrians.

CLOCS, what an achievement! Reporting back
CLOCS has a story to tell beyond a series of outputs. The first CLOCS programme reports, available to download now, tells this story from 2012 to 2016 - it highlights the key achievements and demonstrates how the programme has evolved to facilitate change in the most effective way, overcoming obstacles and barriers and making the most of lessons learned. It is also a thank you to all that have been involved in CLOCS over this period, showing the breadth of work and progress that has taken place across the industry.
From commitment to implementation
The Working Group and the CLOCS team have been developing a new Memorandum of Understanding to help Champions to set their own goals and timescales for implementation of the CLOCS Standard across their business and supply chain.  To support existing Champions in setting and monitoring progress towards their own targets, we have recently issued a questionnaire to help formalise an outline implementation plan.  So far 40% of CLOCS Champions have returned the online survey which is a great response but it is imperative for all Champions to complete and submit.  If you’ve missed the email, contact
Would you like to share?
We’re looking for companies to share their CLOCS journeys.  Learning from the experience of others often saves time and money and we would like to capitalise on the unique community we have in our CLOCS champions.  We would like to develop a varied collection of case studies for champions to celebrate progress towards implementation and to widely share best practice. We’re not looking for volumes – just 200 words and a contact if somebody would like to find out more. Email if you would like to be featured.
Focus on grant funding - CICC
The Construction Industry Cycling Commission’s (CICC) work revolves around designing and building safer cities for walking and cycling. The CICC has drawn up a 10 point manifesto for change, which can be found here.  The funding will enable CICC to;
1) Develop and implement a safety awareness campaign, aimed at construction vehicle drivers, cyclists and pedestrians, with prominent messages on part of the large areas of hoardings and wraps which are used by developers for marketing purposes
2) Develop and implement a CPD programme for construction industry consultants including architects, master planners, transport engineers, construction logistics planners. It will provide advice on how designers can influence site organisation and construction techniques, and practical advice on how controls can be implemented eg contracts and section 106.

Project Pictogram – Driving Safer Roads

Project  Pictogram is a national community wide road safety initiative which seeks to raise awareness of the ‘Fatal Factors’ present in almost all Killed or Serious Injury (KSI) collisions, as well as the more minor shunts which delay our journeys and cost businesses every day...more
