CLOCS-A Site Monitoring

Monitoring compliance of site and fleet operations against the CLOCS-A Standard is crucial to ensure consistent adherence to the standard by all parties. Taking prompt and positive action when an organisation falls short is essential to prevent recurrence.

To help members in understanding and enhancing site compliance and subsequent safety, CLOCS-A Site Monitoring was created in collaboration with CLOCS-A Strategic Partners.

Three mechanisms are in place to facilitate effective site monitoring:

1. Formal site review visit conducted by the CLOCS-A monitoring team

It provides a site score and a detailed report outlining good practices and suggestions for improvement. Before the visit, the site team must complete a self-assessment form and submit it to the CLOCS-A monitoring team. Formal site review reports and scores serve as evidence, internally and externally, that CLOCS requirements are being met.

2. An advisory site review visit by the CLOCS-A monitoring team

This provides a comprehensive report highlighting good practices and improvement suggestions without assigning a formal score or compliance rating.

3. Self-assessment checklist

The self-assessment checklist aligns with the CLOCS-A Standard requirements specific to the site. The questions aim to verify compliance and capture performance exceeding the minimum requirements, focusing on mandatory, recommended, and optional elements. This checklist assists principal contractors in evaluating their compliance level.

Please review the Site Monitoring Resources for available documents that can assist members in understanding and maximising the value from the process.

The assessment and monitoring process not only verifies if the Standard is being upheld but also strives to acknowledge best practices and elevate industry standards. The CLOCS-A site monitoring team furnishes a comprehensive report with valuable suggestions for enhancement and assigns ratings to key areas. The overall scores and reports serve various purposes:

  • Serve as evidence of compliance for your clients
  • Act as a benchmark for prospective employers/clients
  • Facilitate internal performance evaluations

Effective monitoring is crucial in pinpointing areas of underperformance that can be promptly rectified.
