what is fors
The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme designed to elevate standards and promote best practices within road transport. At its core, FORS helps fleet operators like us monitor and improve our operations through a robust framework of criteria and guidelines. It covers vital aspects of fleet management, including vehicle safety, driver training, fuel efficiency, and environmental performance.
FORS offers a progressive accreditation structure with three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Each level represents a higher standard of compliance and operational excellence, with FORS Gold being the pinnacle of achievement.
Bronze accreditation serves as the starting point, providing a solid foundation for fleet operators. It focuses on essential legal compliance, such as driver license checks, vehicle inspections, and basic risk assessments.
Building upon Bronze, Silver accreditation places a greater emphasis on vehicle safety systems, driver training, and operational efficiency. It requires evidence of progressive environmental improvements and an understanding of our impact on air quality.
FORS Gold represents the highest level of recognition, showcasing our resolute commitment to industry-leading standards. Achieving Gold status demonstrates outstanding levels of operational excellence, safety, and environmental stewardship.
By attaining FORS Gold accreditation, we join the group of operators who go above and beyond industry standards, ensuring the best operating practices, management, and environmental controls. This means that when you choose us, you’re selecting an operator that stands out as an industry leader, continuously achieving and setting new standards.
