Grayson become CLOCS Champion

Grayson (GB) Ltd are dedicated to increasing the awareness of work related road risks (WRRR) to our customers and freight forwarders by becoming a CLOCS Champion.

What is CLOCS?

Between 2008 and 2013, 55 per cent of cyclist fatalities in London involved a heavy goods vehicle. A disproportionate number were construction vehicles. In 2012 Transport for London commissioned an independent review of the construction sector’s transport activities with the aim of understanding the causes of collisions and how they may be prevented.

The resulting ‘Construction Logistics and Cyclist Safety' (CLOCS) report was published in February 2013 by Transport Research Laboratory. The report found that blind spots on construction vehicles could be larger than general haulage vehicles, that road safety was not considered in same way as health and safety on-site and that there was little understanding of the impact of construction activity on road safety. It also found that there was no common standard for the industry to work to in order to manage work related road safety. 

In response, the construction logistics industry has demonstrated its commitment to change and identified actions under three work streams to improve road safety. CLOCS brings the construction logistics industry together to take forward actions through a programme of work aiming to revolutionise the management of work related road risk and embed a road safety culture across the industry.
