Australia and the United Kingdom (UK) are different?

CLOCS-A will be adapting UK’s CLOCS to Australia. The CLOCS-A Steering Group has already developed a paper identifying the key differences between Australia and the UK which each of the Technical Groups will be drawing on. The power of CLOCS-A is the ability to mandate elements through the standard that is specific to this industry sector which may be regulated in the UK such as side under-run. Whilst there are differences between countries, we experience very similar challenges with construction transport activities required to operate in urban environments, and on local roads to service construction sites. In addition, there are no equivalent schemes, standards or codes of practice which have been developed specific to managing the on-road hazards and risks encountered in the construction transport sector.
