The City Mark project is focused on the road safety compliance of construction sites in the City of London.
It is one of the many projects that the City of London Corporation are focusing on to reduce the number of people Killed or Seriously Injured by Heavy Good Vehicles.
All construction projects in the City of London are members of the Considerate Contractors Scheme (CCS) and City Mark forms an addition to that scheme. It brings the scheme up to date with the leading Work Related Road Safety (WRRS) initiatives such as the Freight Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) and the Construction Logistics for Community Safety Standard(CLOCS). Typically, FORS and CLOCS form contract requirements on many projects and if implemented correctly it would be enforced at every tier of the supply chain - encouraging best practice, safer drivers and compliant vehicles.
Through the Considerate Contractors Scheme CityMark monitors compliance with FORS and CLOCS and by doing so hopes to build the bigger picture of where the potential risks exit and ensure these risks are mitigated. CityMark is the first initiative to understand the levels of FORS and CLOCS implementation across construction supply chains. The level of implementation is
critical to delivering the benefits of both schemes.
