FORS covers lorries, vans, buses, coaches, fleet cars, motorcycles and scooters, although HGVs are the main focus.
It’s a voluntary scheme, but a growing number of major companies and organisations make FORS Bronze status a contractual requirement.
To achieve Bronze status, an operator has to be legally compliant and also able to demonstrate that they follow good practice across all areas of their business.
It can be overwhelming for an operator when preparing for FORS. The huge amount of policy writing and preparation for you and your drivers can be very daunting. This is why Dromore Safety Services can provide you and your company with some much needed FORS assistance to attain your FORS accreditation.
What is FORS?
The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme that promotes best practice for commercial vehicle operators. FORS encompasses all aspects of safety, efficiency, and environmental protection by encouraging and training fleet operators to measure, monitor and improve performance. FORS provides accreditation pathways for operators of any type, and for those organisations that award contracts and specify transport requirements.
There are three level to FORS, Bronze, Silver and Gold FORS providing progressive accreditation enabling operators to achieve exemplary levels of best practice.
FORS accreditation is about a culture change from which your business will only benefit. It’s not just about compliance, it`s much more–becoming a FORS member will help improve:
