Going that step further to improve safety outwith the confines of the site itself – have you heard of “CLOCS“?
If not then a visit to the website for more information will prove interesting – www.clocs.org.uk
CLOCS is a national Standard that requires all stakeholders in construction to take responsibility for health & safety beyond the hoardings. It demands collaborative action to prevent fatal or serious collisions between vehicles servicing construction projects and vulnerable road users; pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.
The CLOCS Standard requires action from clients, principal contractors and vehicle operators and harnesses the power of policy-makers to minimise the impact of construction projects and eliminate harm to communities.
