Sustainable and safe logistics: Heras-Mobile member of CLOCS and FORS

In the UK, still too many accidents happen with vulnerable road users as a result of construction logistics. To take ownership of this problem and contribute to the solution, the industry created two national industry standards CLOCS and FORS. CLOCS and FORS work together and represent a united response to improve road safety. At Heras-Mobile, we want to work together with other organizations in support of high safety levels and are therefore are a proud member of CLOCS and FORS.

Soundproof walls used as hearing protection around construction sites

Safety comes in many different forms. You use fences to deter thieves and camera systems to keep burglars at bay. To protect your hearing, you use a soundproof fabric. Since work in the Netherlands and Belgium is currently being carried out within the framework of reduced nuisance , the use of soundproof walls is becoming more common. Thanks to the fabric, the noise volume remains within the permitted noise limit, and excessive noise that leads to the construction site being shut down has become a thing of the past.

Older aggregates as well as concrete and stone grinders make a huge amount of noise. Newer versions are quieter, but not every company has one of these. To stay under the permitted noise limit, you can rent a soundproof fabric. The fabric reduces music and noise from machines. Municipalities regularly prescribe and promote this product.

Toning noise down with acoustic barriers

When you’re building in highly populated areas you have to reduce the noise to a minimum. People hate noise and immediately start to complain when they hear sounds from your construction site. Acoustic barriers help you reduce the noise and protect the hearing of your employees too.

An acoustic barrier reduces the noise from the building or construction site with 20 decibel. That’s a lot. Because of the noise reduction people outside the site can live their lives and don’t be disturbed by annoying sounds. Your employees can pick up the pace and finish their work in time. Because you work without causing noise people don’t call the police to shut the workplace down.
