ITN productions has created a new programme, starring Tarmac, that promotes road safety in the construction industry.

Introduced by newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky, ‘Masterminds of Construction’ forms the latest part of the company’s ongoing partnership with the Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS) initiative.

Developed in conjunction with the Chartered Institute of Building, Tarmac featured alongside fellow CLOCS supporters, Land Securities and Mace. The companies came together to demonstrate the crucial safety measures that are being implemented across the construction industry to protect vulnerable pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists and other road users.

The programme highlights the ways that leading construction clients, contractors and fleet operators are fulfilling the responsibilities in accordance with CDM (Construction, Design and Management) regulations through training and the use of innovations to reduce accidents between large vehicles and vulnerable road users.

Sean McGrae, senior manager, national transport at Tarmac, said: “As an operator of one of the largest vehicle fleets in the industry, we are committed to improving vulnerable road user safety across the UK and delighted to be involved in this initiative. At Tarmac we believe that there is both a real challenge and a clear opportunity to improve the safety of cyclists and pedestrians in London and beyond. “Through our work with CLOCS, ensuring the provision of the right technology and equipment, as well as enabling drivers to have access to the right training and technical support; we are looking to continue our industry-leading approach.”
