FORS

FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) offers incentives and encouragement for the safe and sustainable operation of commercial vehicles.

FORS (Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme)

FORS can be a minefield for many fleet and transport mangers.  Understanding which vehicles need to be covered, what level of accreditation is required and most importantly how much this is going to cost.

At RS Connect, we appreciate that you may need help and advice. Our team of experts can help by assessing your requirement and installing equipment professionally and efficiently

Why should I consider FORS Silver?

There are a number of reasons it can be beneficial to move to FORS Silver level.

  • It demonstrates your commitment to managing road risk
  • It can save you money by reducing your fuel spend by improving the miles per gallon you are getting across your fleet
  • Savings can also be made because FORS helps reduce the number of incidents on the road – companies following FORS standards typically see a reduction in incidents
  • You will be seen to have achieved high standards of legal compliance, safety efficiency and environmental protection
  • It meets the safe system requirements should you need to apply for a DVS permit to enter London
  • Many organisations include FORS Silver as a contractual/procurement requirement when you are tendering for work
  • FORS can help you attract and retain new staff, who could have a focus on your environmental credentials
  • Your fleet will be compliant with the CLOCS (Construction Logistics and Community Safety) standard, and with TfL’s WRRR (Work Related Road Risk).

There are fees for subscription and auditing, which are dependent on the level required and the number of vehicles in the fleet.
