Bicycle Queensland has provided a letter of support to NRSPP to become a Supporting Partner (SP) in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which will underpin the development of Construction Logistics and Community and Safety in Australia (CLOCS-A). Bicycle Queensland since becoming a SP applied to the Steering Group to become a guiding partner of the program and was welcomed into the SG at the 28 April 2021 meeting.
The MoU reflects the agreement between SG Partners to work together to improve the safety and operational efficiency of construction infrastructure projects. The SP will support the Steering Group and help act as a catalyst and champion to guide the establishment of CLOCS-A.
The NRSPP will continue to lead the development and establishment of the collaborative CLOCS-A initiative and to Chair the Steering Group. The program looks forward to being able to handover a sustainable program, which over time will transform the construction logistics safety in Australia, as it has in the United Kingdom.
The power of CLOCS is the ability of Government infrastructure projects to share the responsibility for road safety by establishing a minimum safety standard in relation to the companies which are contracted to deliver services and the way they interact with the community.
