Logistics and safety managed by new construction partnership

13 October 2016

A new collaboration has been announced to manage the national standard for Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS).

Announced yesterday, the partnership is designed to "embed, monitor, promote and expand" the standard around the UK, according to the announcement.

Its main focus will be the promotion of CLOCS on construction sites and with companies and suppliers.

The standard was developed by Transport for London (TfL) after its research showed that 35% of pedestrian and cyclist fatalities in London involved construction vehicles.

As a result, CLOCS calls for the industry to "recognise its responsibilities" in the delivery and collection of site materials and equipment.

TfL has engaged more than 340 CLOCS champions in the Greater London region and one of the aims of the new partnership is to spread the message throughout the UK.

The new partnership consists of SECBE, the Construction Clients Leadership Group, LHC, Build UK and the Considerate Constructors Scheme.

Further information on the partnership and its aims can be found at
