SCAPE joins CLOCS as part of ongoing commitment to health and safety
6 Apr 2021
CLOCS welcomes SCAPE, the public-sector partnership, as a CLOCS Champion. SCAPE has an unwavering commitment to ensuring that health and safety is embedded into every SCAPE project, and now commits to raise awareness of the CLOCS Standard and promote its implementation and wider adoption across the industry by encouraging those they work with to become CLOCS champions.
“Health and safety is at the core of everything we do. We welcome the opportunity to align our approach with a consistent national standard, which will give clients and end users absolute confidence that their projects will be delivered with physical and mental wellbeing as our primary consideration. SCAPE take their role as an industry leader very seriously, and in alignment with policy set out in the government’s Construction Playbook, we hope that this encourages others to maintain the highest standards as we help communities to build back better.” Mark Robinson, SCAPE group chief executive
SCAPE is a public-sector partnership that helps to improve the UK’s built environment. Since 2006, they have accelerated over 12,000 projects across the UK with their direct award frameworks, property services and design solutions. They join CLOCS as part of our Communicator stakeholder group.
“Safety remains our number one priority as a business. We support CLOCS’ mission for a united response to improving road safety to cut deaths and serious injuries on Britain’s roads. We all must play our part to promote and help raise awareness for safer construction vehicle journeys in an effort to reduce the risks they pose on site and the community. CLOCS raises the bar for construction vehicle best practice.” Joe Hastie, SCAPE CDM and safety manager
In the last five years, over 28,000 pedestrians, cyclists or motorcyclists were injured or killed on Britain’s roads in collisions with vehicles commonly used in construction. Over 3 times more people die in these collisions than the number who die within UK construction hoardings*.
Government action to improve air quality and promote active travel is resulting in more and more people travelling by foot and bike across the UK. But with construction activity set to increase in 2021 and 2022, there will be more HGVs on our roads and in our communities. Ensuring the safest construction vehicle journeys has never been more important.
