CLOCS Toolkit |Managing collision reporting and analysis

CLOCS Toolkit - Managing collision reporting and analysis

This toolkit is designed to assist you in implementing and adhering to the requirements of the CLOCS Standard

CLOCS At the scene collision report form for drivers

This form is to be filled in by the driver as soon as it is safe to do so whilst at the scene of the accident and covers the immediate information that needs to be collected such as contact details of witnesses.

CLOCS Driver post collision report form

This should be completed independently by the driver prior to the end of shift at base and within a recommended maximum of 24 hours. It forms part of the driver’s account of the collision and should be included in the collision file for the purposes of investigation.

CLOCS Manager collision reporting record and forms

The manager should complete this form within a recommended maximum of 24 hours of the collision being reported at base by the driver. It forms the company view of what happened at the scene and immediately prior to the collision.

CLOCS Manager post collision report form

The Post Collision Ivestigation Form should be completed during discussions with the driver, it seeks to identify the causes of the investigation as well as verify the facts as reported in the driver and manager post collision forms.

CLOCS Post collision investigation form

The Post Collision Ivestigation Form should be completed during discussions with the driver, it seeks to identify the causes of the investigation as well as verify the facts as reported in the driver and manager post collision forms.

Strategic Plans

Direct Vision Standard

The Direct Vision Standard (DVS) and safety permit for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) requires all lorries over 12 tonnes gross vehicle weight to be granted a permit to enter or operate in Greater London. From 26 October 2020, all HGVs more than 12 tonnes (GVW) entering or operating in Greater London will need to hold a valid HGV Safety Permit. The HGV Safety Permit scheme will cover Greater London and be in operation 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

Vision Zero action plan

Published 24/8/2018 The Mayor's Transport Strategy sets out the goal that, by 2041, all deaths and serious injuries will be eliminated from London's transport network.

Made to Move

Made to Move, published in December 2017, set out a 15-step plan to transform Greater Manchester. This report was adopted unanimously by the district leaders. The first and most crucial step was the publication of a detailed, Greater Manchester-wide walking and cycling and infrastructure proposal, in collaboration with all ten local authorities.
