As Champion Members of the Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS) scheme, Mackley is pleased to support a new campaign to ensure the safest construction vehicle journeys.
CLOCS is a national industry standard which is the direct result of collaboration between the construction and fleet sectors to address shared safety issues.
It brings together developers, construction companies, operators, vehicle manufacturers and regulatory bodies to embed a road safety culture across the construction industry.
CLOCS works through three main streams: improving vehicle design, addressing the imbalance between on-site and on-road safety, and encouraging wider adoption of best practise through a national standard.
The CLOCS Works campaign – launched on 8 September – urges UK local authorities and metro city mayors to commit to CLOCS.
The campaign has been devised amid concerns over the implications of the Government’s drive for active travel – coupled with more construction vehicles on the road as a result of its pledge to ‘build, build, build’ the nation’s way out of the economic crisis caused by Covid-19.
