Construction Logistics and Community Safety – Australia (CLOCS-A) is a national good practice approach for managing the risks and impacts associated with a construction project’s on-road transport and logistics activities to community road safety. It was developed to provide a consistent framework for industry to achieve and has been inspired by the success of the Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS) program established in the United Kingdom in reducing road trauma associated with construction logistics. The primary goal of CLOCS-A is that a similar reduction in lives lost and serious injuries can be achieved locally on our roads in Australia.
Key activities and deliverables from this establishment phase project, stage 1 of the CLOCS-A program, have included:
- Scan of existing CLOCS-A related initiatives in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland
- Development of a national implementation plan
- Development of a draft guidance document
- Launch of CLOCS-A website
More information on the implementation of CLOCS-A can be found via the CLOCS-A implementation plan.
