Dec '16 - FORS Gold achieved
Following the January awarding of our FORS Silver accreditation, our haulage team have now reached the dizzy heights of FORS Gold!
The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary, industry-led accreditation scheme introduced by Transport for London (TFL) in 2008, that aims to improve fleet activity throughout the UK and beyond. At its core, FORS promotes safe working practices, legal compliance and a corporate social responsibility to help improve the performance of fleet operators and encrouage colaboration for safe practice accross haulage companies in the UK.
The achiement of FORS Gold can only be matched by a handful of companies that operate in our sphere of work and it is a testiment to the hard work of our logistics team that they have recognised the importance of mainting high standards in delivery, health and safety, and driver training. Our drivers have had substatianl awareness training in relation to driver and cyclist safety, as well as working to become as fuel efficient as possible through the adjustment of their driving techniques
Although the scheme is voluntary, we acheived the initial Bronze accreditation back in 2014 after recognising the need to manage our fleet effectivley and put health and saftey at the very forefront of each delivery. More and more of our clients and their clients demand FORS accrediation and in 2014 around 25% insisted on FORS Silver as a minimum standard for any vehicle entering site. FORS Gold will open up more opporuntities for our team moving into 2017 and we would fully execept the majorify of our high profile clients to demand this high level of serivce throughout their projects.
