    Hi Everyone

    The National Road Safety Partnership Program (NRSPP) will be holding a webinar on "Adapting UK's Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS) Initiative to Australia" and would like to invite the IPWEA community to attend.

    What is CLOCS?

    CLOCS is an industry-led program, sponsored by Transport for London (TfL), with the aim of fundamentally changing the way the construction industry manages road safety. It was developed following a number of recommendations from an independent report by the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) highlighting the over representation of construction heavy vehicles involved in fatal collisions with cyclists during London's construction boom and has since become its own standalone standard across the United Kingdom. CLOCS has saved lives, improved efficiency and provided consistency and certainty for the construction and transport sector.

    The NRSPP recognised the opportunity of broader adaption of a CLOCS approach in Australia in 2016 and signed a Memorandum of Understanding with TfL to develop a local version which would be known as CLOCS-Australia (CLOCS-A).

     Webinar Overview

    This webinar will explore:

    • The major infrastructure projects underway in Australia, the opportunity and associated risks with a focus on Vulnerable Road Users
    • How TfL used their major infrastructure projects to establish CLOCS, the benefits to industry, govt and the community by TfL's Peter Binham
    • How Sydney Metro has adapted CLOCS into its safety standards and contracts by Jon Lamonte, Chief Executive, Sydney Metro
    • What safety standards in project contracts represent to Hanson, by Scott Tipping
    • The adaption of CLOCS Sharing the Safely education program for truck drivers to Melbourne for Victorian Government by Amy Gillett Foundation (AGF) by Dr Marilyn Johnson
    • Work done to date – Draft Guide
    • Next steps, short- and long-term objectives

    NRSPP have a broad range of road safety resources and it's worth checking out their website. To join the CLOCS-A webinar register at https://www.nrspp.org.au/?events=webinar-adapting-uks-construction-logistics-and-community-safety-initiative-to-australia
