Health and safety has always been embedded in everything we do, on all our projects, and reflected across all levels of our operations. That’s why we are proud to announce that Interclass has become a CLOCS (Construction Logistics and Community Safety) Champion.
CLOCS is a national standard that brings together stakeholders in construction to take shared responsibility for health and safety beyond the hoardings and aims to reduce the number of traffic incidents related to construction logistics.
The standard demands collaborative action to revolutionise the management of work-related road risk (WRRR) and ensure a road safety culture is embedded across the industry to prevent fatal or serious collisions between vehicles servicing construction projects and vulnerable road users.
As a champion, Interclass is committed to improving construction logistics and health & safety standards, including ensuring the safest construction vehicle journeys.
Since the majority of our construction projects often involve working on logistically challenging sites and within busy and heavily pedestrianised areas, this new accreditation further demonstrates our outstanding commitment towards community safety.
As a CLOCS Champion we have committed to promote the CLOCS Standard throughout our supply chain, which will ensure that safety improvements will be cascaded through the construction industry. We have also produced an implementation plan which will be reviewed and updated annually to ensure we implement the CLOCS Standard on all our construction sites.
Construction Director, Peter Hood said:
“As a CLOCS Champion, Interclass is committed to protecting the communities where we work from the risk of harm from any construction-related logistics activities. We welcome the opportunity to align our approach with a consistent national standard, which will give clients and end users absolute confidence that their projects will be delivered to both the highest and safest standard.”
