In response to a growing number of organisations restricting non-essential travel or attendance at events due to Coronavirus, we have decided to hold the CLOCS City conferences online using Zoom video conference.
This isn’t a decision we’ve made lightly but is the responsible one as it helps limit the spread of Coronavirus and helps keep you and colleagues safer. It will save you and others time, cost, carbon and perhaps hassle as you won’t have to travel to the venue – and may well prove a tipping point for positive change in some business practices. Unfortunately it does prevent face-to-face networking and influencing that we all value.
You remain registered for the same CLOCS City event but you should use the following link to log in - https://zoom.us/j/112991426pwd=YnJzRHYwUTRWSTdGQjg1OHhnNmlLQT09
– further log in details beneath this email.
You will need to have registered with Zoom beforehand – its free and painless (takes 2 mins or less).
You’re asked to log into the conference call 5mins before the scheduled start which Cardiff is now 9.00am.
You’ll still have the opportunity to ask live questions through an online ‘chat’ – these will be moderated to group similar questions together but all will get answered.
If you wish to switch conferences, or want to invite others in your organisation to also log in, please register on Eventbrite using the following links
• LIVERPOOL Wednesday 11th March at 9.00–11.00am
• CARDIFF Thursday 12th March at 9.00–11.00am
• BIRMINGHAM Thursday 12th March at 4.00–6.00pm
Once again, I’m sorry for any inconvenience caused and will work our hardest to ensure you get everything you need from these conferences.
Attend to hear first-hand from leading planners, construction clients, principal contractors and fleet operators who are already benefiting from implementing the CLOCS Standard (Construction Logistics and Community Safety) – working together to save lives, money, emissions and reputation.
Understand how implementing CLOCS can help to eliminate the risk of serious injury to pedestrians/cyclists, improve construction logistics, reduce complaints, and protect your organisation’s reputation
The problem: Collisions with HGVs, many of which are servicing our construction projects, contribute to the deaths and life changing injuries of over 500 pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists on our roads every year.
Did you know? This equates to 2 people every working day. That is 4 times more fatalities beyond the hoardings than within.
These preventable collisions are costing us all dearly – financially, socially and ethically. £2m per survivor pay-outs are funded by our insurance premiums, reputations are damaged with loss of earnings and trauma experienced by the casualty, driver, witnesses and families alike.
CLOCS is the solution: Many organisations across the UK are now specifying CLOCS through planning/procurement conditions and monitoring implementation. This positive action can help to win work, safeguards business reputation and demonstrates a commitment to CSR. Simple actions involving CLOCS by planners, construction clients, principal contractors and fleet operators consistently reduce collisions by 47%, reduce complaints by 36% and consistently reduce costs too.
Please also forward this invitation to all your important customers or colleagues that would also benefit from attending. Thank you for your continued commitment to inform and inspire many others to also adopt and implement CLOCS.
