CLOCS sets the standard: now 100 industry champions 30 April 2015

One hundred organisations and construction projects have now become CLOCS Champions (Construction Logistics and Cyclist Safety), just two years after the initiative was launched.

CLOCS Champions have committed to implementing the CLOCS standard ( in their own organisations and across their supply chains.

The growing list comprises fleet operators, construction clients and developers, as well as organisations that support the CLOCS standard's application and purpose – ranging from Thames Tideway Tunnel and Travis Perkins, to the London Borough of Camden and Skanska.

"There has been a huge response to the problem [of vulnerable road users] from the construction industry, demonstrated by so many companies, of all sizes, embracing the CLOCS initiative and making a true commitment to change," states CLOCS project director John Hix.

"As we pass the 100 Champions mark, and with numbers continuing to increase, we encourage operators nationwide to look at the impact this work is already having," he continues.

"Talking to us and the other Champions about improving on-road safety could be beneficial not just for other road users but also their own staff and businesses."

Through CLOCS, the construction industry is focusing on three streams of work to reduce the risk of collisions between commercial vehicles and vulnerable road users.

These are: improving vehicle safety; addressing the imbalance between the treatment of on-site and on-road safety; and encouraging wider adoption of good practice through a national standard.
