All CLOCS champions undertake to promote CLOCS across the industry through their own contacts and networks. However, there is a stakeholder group whose primary role is to encourage others to comply with the CLOCS Standards. These comprise industry groups such as Build UK, CCLG, trade associations, professional institutions, charities and lobby groups.
These organisations have the power to amplify the reach and impact of CLOCS and benefit from:
- reinforcement of the positive impact of construction and its improving image
- positive association with a Standard that protects vulnerable road users
- a window on the business benefits of complying with the CLOCS Standard
- influence on how the CLOCS Standard meets the commercial needs of their members
- a strong voice for members in the development of guidance and toolkits
What is your commitment to become a CLOCS Champion?
CLOCS Champions are party to a Memorandum of Understanding with the CLOCS Sponsor. An application will require you to agree to the terms and submit an acceptable CLOCS Implementation Plan online. Implementation Plans provide a headline statement of corporate intent to implement and comply with the CLOCS Standard
All CLOCS Champions have a duty to spread the word about the benefits of CLOCS. It is important for the team to understand which areas of our target market are being covered by our community so that we can identify where we most need to dedicate resource to stimulate action. As a Communicator you will be asked to give a brief description of how you intend to promote CLOCS through your own marketing. You will be asked to update this each year to enable the CLOCS Team to track progress towards full implementation and compliance to the CLOCS Standard.
How to become a CLOCS Champion
There is a CLOCS Champion membership fee of £600/annum. This does not apply to charities and community groups. Please contact the CLOCS team – firstname.lastname@example.org
This low level of co-investment is needed to accelerate and increase the adoption and implementation of CLOCS across the UK, and to better support registered organisations committed to positive action to eliminate the risk of harm to communities from their construction logistics activity.
If you are ready to commit to saving lives then your first step is to register to become a CLOCS Champion. After your registration has been processed you will receive information on how to create your own Champion Account where you will be able to build your profile and submit your first implementation plan for approval. Your membership fee will be due as soon as your first implementation plan has been approved.
The Association for Project Safety [APS] believes the CLOCS initiative is helping to cut deaths and serious injuries on Britain’s roads. We have all a part to play in helping raise awareness of the dangers so at-risk road users understand how they can stay safe and construction drivers learn ways to reduce the risks their vehicles can pose.
APS is proud to be a CLOCS partner and to help our members design road safety into any project on which they work.
