RoadPeace and CEMEX UK join forces
 
RoadPeace, the national charity for road crash casualties, and CEMEX UK, a leading provider of aggregates, cement, ready-mixed concrete and rail sleepers, are calling on the construction industry to join the CLOCS scheme.
 
They have produced a video aimed at the construction industry, highlighting the reasons why the scheme is so important to businesses and the public at large, and gives a constructive voice to people who have been injured or bereaved through collisions with construction vehicles.
 
Victoria Lebrec, RoadPeace spokesperson and casualty of a construction lorry crash, says “In 2014 my life changed forever when I was hit by a tipper truck whilst cycling in London. I lost my leg in the collision and have had over 12 operations and months of physiotherapy. I urge all construction companies to join up to CLOCS and take on board some simple, effective methods to make their vehicles safer. If signing up means saving someone the pain I went through, then it is absolutely worth it.”  … read more
 
 

How CLOCS and FORS connect - demystifying workshop on 9th July in Croydon
 
This free, half-day workshop for local authorities, construction clients, site operators and fleet operators explains how working together to eliminate fatal or serious collisions between HGVs and Vulnerable Road Users makes a real difference, and what compliance to the key parts of the CLOCS Standard is required of site operators and fleet operators.
 
It also explains the difference between an organisation being a CLOCS Champion and ‘just’ being CLOCS compliant, and how FORS can be used by fleet operators to demonstrate CLOCS compliance. The planned mixed audience helps stakeholders gain a better understanding of CLOCS and FORS from all perspectives and increase implementation. The workshop covers:
  • Context and background to CLOCS and FORS
  • CLOCS Standard for construction logistics: Managing work related road risk
  • Roles and responsibilities of CLOCS Champions and FORS operators
  • How planning obligations are used to require the CLOCS Standard to improve road safety
  • How contracts are used to require the CLOCS Standard and managing work related road risk in contracts
  • How supplier compliance to the CLOCS Standard is demonstrated through FORS accreditation

FORS

The national CLOCS Standard requires actions by site operators and fleet operators alike to be compliant. Fleet operators are required to ensure all drivers undertake client approved progressive training and CPD specifically covering the safety of Vulnerable Road Users.
 
Safe Urban Driver (SUD) training courses are often available for free through FORS and last a full day, comprising 3.5 hours in the classroom and 3.5 hours practical time to get a cyclist’s and pedestrian’s view of the road; it also includes Exchanging Places.
 
Full details available at https://www.fors-online.org.uk/cms/safe-urban-driving/. A similar course is also available for van drivers at https://www.fors-online.org.uk/cms/van-smart/
