Mulalley & Co Ltd
Mulalley is a leading contractor for construction, development, refurbishment and maintenance and is at the forefront of innovation. We are based in Redbridge and operate over London and the South East. Becoming FORS Gold accredited and a CLOCS Champion has helped us to make tangible improvements to our own fleet, manage the impact of our sites and our supply chain, to ensure we protect vulnerable road users.
We became a CLOCS Champion in 2016, catalysed by a client contractual condition. We recognised that CLOCS was an important initiative which clearly aligned with our commitment to improve safety, plus our other achievements as a Considerate Constructors Scheme Founder Partner, Investor in People Gold and RoSPA Gold accredited company. We have also been FORS accredited since 2013 and recently achieved Gold again.
We have seen numerous benefits from our own fleet becoming compliant. Our absolute number of collisions reduced by a third in 2017, which per 100,000 miles travelled this is a 13% reduction. FORS has given us the tools to review our collision reporting processes and ensure all our drivers receive appropriate vulnerable road user training and e-learning. We have also significantly reduced fines and charges received and fuel usage, supporting our carbon neutral status.
'’Becoming a CLOCS Champion demonstrates our commitment to improving safety and best practice, to minimise the impact that our construction sites have on people and the surrounding area.” Eamon O'Malley, Director
Retaining FORS Gold has helped us credibly encourage our supply chain to comply; we have written to our top 200 suppliers, promoting the benefits of CLOCS and of progressing to FORS Silver and Gold accreditation. We also mandate CLOCS within our supply chain for in-scope contracts and are active members of the CLOCS working group. We have focused on initially implementing CLOCS at our larger sites and those in areas with high concentrations of vulnerable road users.
