Jan '16 - FORS Silver achieved
2016 is off to a pro-active (however damp) start with our haulage team achieving the FORS Silver accreditation for our fleet.
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.
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.
Congratulations to the haulage team for all of their hard work in acheiving this standard and hopefully Gold will be in place for 2017.
