The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme encompassing all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions and improved operations. FORS helps fleet operators to measure and monitor performance and alter their operations in order to demonstrate best practice. It is open to operators of vans, lorries, mini-buses, coaches and other vehicles, and to the organisations that award contracts to those operators.
It is graded into 3 levels, bronze, silver and gold and we have advised clients on all three levels of the standard
To help you prepare for this Chris Metcalfe who is a FORS Practitioner can carry out a pre audit. This entails visiting your site and looking at the documentation, procedures and manuals already in place to see if they meets the standard required and then filling in any gaps by advising you and supplying the correct documents to help you gain the accreditation.
Chris has completed over 600 audits as a FORS auditor so knows exactly what needs to be done
