Vulnerable Road User Awareness Course Requirements and Guidance for Training Requirements


Construction Logistics and Community Safety – Australia (“CLOCS-A”) is a national voluntary Standard developed by a range of industry champions, government, peak associations and community organisations working together and adopting a best practice approach to ensure community road safety whilst improving the efficiency and productivity of transport and logistics on construction projects.

The CLOCS-A Standard sets out the minimum requirements for managing construction vehicle movements and ensuring safe interactions with other road users with the primary aim of managing the risks and impacts associated with a construction project’s on-road transport and logistics activities to improve community road safety.

As part of the CLOCS-A Standard, minimum training and competency requirements are specified for heavy vehicle drivers of construction vehicles to meet before the organisation (and project) they work for can gain accreditation to the CLOCS-A Standard.

As part of these requirements, heavy vehicle drivers are required to complete training in and gain competency in “Vulnerable Road User Awareness”. It is understood, at the time of writing this guidance, there is a gap in the market offering training courses in this subject area, and that organisations are currently developing courses and associated learning materials to meet this requirement of the CLOCS-A Standard.

This document has been developed to clarify those requirements for Vulnerable Road User Awareness training course content, delivery and assessment, and outline the process to undertake to gain course approval from the CLOCS-A Managing Body.


The process of checking vehicles to verify if they comply with the standard will likely take 3 different forms – depending on the standards being checked.
