Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS) Standard

The CLOCS standard is a national industry standard that places responsibilities and duties on the regulator, the client, the principal contractor controlling the construction site, and the supply chain servicing the project, namely the fleet operator.

The four key goals of the standard are:

  1. Zero collisions between construction vehicles and the community;
  2. Improved air quality and reduced emissions;
  3. Fewer vehicle journeys;
  4. Reduced reputational risk.

As SCC are designers, manufacturers and distributors of vehicle safety equipment, the information on this page will primarily focus on the requirements specifically pertaining to vehicle safety equipment.  However, if you require information on any of the other areas covered by the standard then please don’t hesitate to get in touch using the contact tab at the top of this page and a member of our knowledgeable team will be only too happy to assist you.  Alternatively, please visit the CLOCS website for further information:
