The Standard for construction logistics: Managing work related road risk (WRRR) is the result of collaboration between construction clients, logistic operators and industry associations*. The document draws together emerging practice from a number of individual standards, policies and codes of practice into one common WRRR standard. This common standard is implemented by developers and can be adhered to in a consistent way by fleet operators. The Standard aims to ensure that construction companies follow effective practice in the management of their operations, vehicles, drivers and construction sites.Each requirement has been developed to reduce the risk of a collision between heavy goods vehicles in the construction sector and vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians. The Standard sets the detailed minimum requirements to create a consistent baseline, but is written in a way that encourages road safety to be managed ever more rigourously as new best practice emerges.
The CLOCS Standard is a key step to demonstrate the commitment of construction logistics industry organisations to improve road safety throughout the supply chain.
A number of supplementary guidance documents have been produced to assist those implementing the requirements of the CLOCS Standard. Click here to view the range of supporting CLOCS Guides.
