SSGB Refresh

28 Nov 2023

The CLOCS Strategy, Standards and Governance Board (SSGB) is made up of representatives from CLOCS members with at least one representative from each stakeholder group to ensure a breadth of knowledge and input into discussions and decisions.

We are delighted to welcome three new members to the group – Rachel Gale from Falcon Freight, Gareth Jones from Speedy Asset Hire and Mark Cowan from British Aggregates Association – and look forward to working with them to drive CLOCS forward through 2024 and beyond.

We also pass on our thanks and appreciation to three members stepping down after concluding their terms on the SSGB - Adrian Wanford from Balfour Beatty, Carl Milton from Cemex and Richard Burnham from Readypower Group.  All have played a vital role in supporting the CLOCS team and the wider community through their commitment, knowledge and expertise.

As a reminder, the SSGB exists to:

  • Ensure CLOCS remains progressive but pragmatic in addressing the shared challenge and ambition of ensuring the safe and efficient movement of construction vehicles.
  • Inform, approve and review progress of CLOCS strategies, policies and activities to ensure they remain appropriate and adequate to achieve the CLOCS mission.
  • Be a credible and technically competent body to inform and approve significant changes to the CLOCS Standard and other CLOCS documents, and where necessary provide specific authoritative advice/clarifications to other members.
  • Maintain the integrity of the CLOCS programme, including adjudicating on an organisation’s CLOCS member status or arbitrate on any escalated complaints.

The group meets formally twice a year where members contribute to various matters providing insights, sharing their knowledge and giving input into discussions and decisions that will help us drive our work forward.

As existing members come to the end of their terms, all CLOCS members will be invited to put themselves forward for consideration to fill any vacancies.
