A construction products chief was expected to tell MPs this week how materials suppliers can help make roads safer for cyclists.
Mineral Products Association director of economics Jerry McLaughlin was due to give evidence to the Transport Committee on Monday.
The cross-party committee is holding two evidence sessions on cycling safety this week.
Fourteen cyclists have died on the roads of London alone this year – nine of them were hit by heavy goods vehicles.
“I will be telling them that we have a policy for our members that involves specific driver training and fitting of additional equipment,” McLaughlin told NCE ahead of the meeting.
Such equipment can include cameras or sensors to alleviate blind spots; bars to stop people falling between the front and back wheels; and audible warnings when vehicles are turning left.
McLaughlin added: “This policy should be taken up more widely across the industry. Contractors have to manage these issues in a sensible way.”
He said he would warn MPs off seeking a ban on construction vehicles at peak times, saying such a move would be impractical.
