RoadPeace and CEMEX UK join forces
RoadPeace, the national charity for road crash casualties, and CEMEX UK, a leading provider of aggregates, cement, ready-mixed concrete and rail sleepers, are calling on the construction industry to join the CLOCS scheme.
They have produced a video aimed at the construction industry, highlighting the reasons why the scheme is so important to businesses and the public at large, and gives a constructive voice to people who have been injured or bereaved through collisions with construction vehicles.
Victoria Lebrec, RoadPeace spokesperson and casualty of a construction lorry crash, says “In 2014 my life changed forever when I was hit by a tipper truck whilst cycling in London. I lost my leg in the collision and have had over 12 operations and months of physiotherapy. I urge all construction companies to join up to CLOCS and take on board some simple, effective methods to make their vehicles safer. If signing up means saving someone the pain I went through, then it is absolutely worth it.” … read more
How CLOCS and FORS connect - demystifying workshop on 9th July in Croydon
This free, half-day workshop for local authorities, construction clients, site operators and fleet operators explains how working together to eliminate fatal or serious collisions between HGVs and Vulnerable Road Users makes a real difference, and what compliance to the key parts of the CLOCS Standard is required of site operators and fleet operators.
It also explains the difference between an organisation being a CLOCS Champion and ‘just’ being CLOCS compliant, and how FORS can be used by fleet operators to demonstrate CLOCS compliance. The planned mixed audience helps stakeholders gain a better understanding of CLOCS and FORS from all perspectives and increase implementation. The workshop covers:
- Context and background to CLOCS and FORS
- CLOCS Standard for construction logistics: Managing work related road risk
- Roles and responsibilities of CLOCS Champions and FORS operators
- How planning obligations are used to require the CLOCS Standard to improve road safety
- How contracts are used to require the CLOCS Standard and managing work related road risk in contracts
- How supplier compliance to the CLOCS Standard is demonstrated through FORS accreditation
