Vulnerable Road Users

 

CLOCS Awareness Training

 

Companies e.g. Laing O’Rourke, Berkley Group, Carillion, Costain, Cemex, Hansons etc. Vehicle and Driver checks will, in future, be carried out before vehicles are allowed access to sites. Drivers who are not compliant will not be allowed to make deliveries. Also, a ‘site vehicle check non-compliance form’ will be sent to the supplier. This means that hauliers will lose work to approved haulage companies.

 

LGS Transport Training is the first training company outside of the M25 corridor to be approved to deliver CLOCS training. The course consists of two 3.5 hour modules, one classroom based and one practical module where drivers can get on bikes and get a cyclists view of the road. The two modules are taught on the same day with up to twenty drivers participating in two groups of ten. The course will be held at a suitable location within the Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset, Devon, Gloucester, Hampshire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and South Wales (subject to site approval).
