CIRAS has become a strategic partner of Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS).
CLOCS strategic partnerships help to make roads and construction sites safer for workers and the public.
To this end, CIRAS will join other CLOCS strategic partners in supporting the CLOCS community to raise standards by raising awareness of work-related road risk, highlighting best practice, and promoting key initiatives and campaigns.
CLOCS aims to eliminate the risk of heavy goods vehicles in the construction sector harming people. Its goals are zero collisions, fewer journeys, improving air quality, improving efficiencies and managing reputational risk. The CLOCS standard provides a framework to protect the wider community, supply chain and employees.
CIRAS provides the confidential reporting service for transport and infrastructure.
Andy Brooke, CLOCS programme director, said:
‘Our aim is safer, leaner and greener construction logistics with zero collisions between construction vehicles and vulnerable road users. This requires collaboration across stakeholders and a culture where everyone is striving for the highest safety standards.
‘CIRAS shares our values and our aim of a safer workplace for all, and we’re therefore delighted to have CIRAS as a CLOCS strategic partner. We look forward to working with them to share best practice and to educate and inform our members on how a progressive confidential reporting culture can improve the management of work-related road risk, making our roads safer for everyone.’
Director of CIRAS Catherine Baker said:
‘We look forward to collaborating with CLOCS to draw wider attention to the risks in construction logistics and to promote safer roads, safer driving and safer working environments.
‘At CIRAS, we understand that a workplace culture that values learning drives forward safety. We will work with CLOCS to share learning and information that will help businesses in transport, construction and logistics to navigate the risks.’
