Challenges for HGV Operators

HGV operators face a range of challenges, including compliance with working time directives, the safety of vulnerable road users, drivers, and security of cargo. The challenges are not just for today but understanding how they can futureproof their fleet. HGV fleets are also at risk of cash-for-crash scams and must manage high accident rates and fuel theft.

At RS Connect, we are there to make sure operators do not have to navigate these challenges alone. We help many fleets across the UK and Ireland to overcome these problems. We can help your business too. Fill out our requirements form and let us know your specific needs and we will assist.

HGV Compliance

Non-compliance when running an HGV Fleet can present a host of problems for HGV operators. Firstly, it can be very costly for a business due to fines and penalties. This doesn’t include the additional downtime due to accident damaged vehicles. Sadly, non-compliance can also result in injury and loss of life especially if there is negligence or failure to keep on top of safety regulations.

FORS

Ensuring HGV fleets meet the FORS Silver accreditation. Our expert technicians will work with you to equip your vehicles with the necessary cameras, left turn audible warning systems, and blind spot minimisation devices needed. We also offer consultation services to help you understand the requirements of the FORS Silver accreditation. And if needed we can provide the hardware from reputable manufacturers.

Direct Vision Standard

Tired of searching for a nationwide installer for your HGV fleet? Look no further. RS Connect offers a one-stop-shop solution for consultation, hardware, and installation of DVS safe systems. Our team of experts specialises in installation and can help ensure your fleet is compliant with DVS regulations, reducing the risk of close-proximity blind spot collisions and improving driver visibility for safer low-speed manoeuvres. Don’t waste time and money shopping around for hardware and installation separately. Contact RS Connect today and let us take care of it all.

HS2 Compliance

As a fleet operator working on HS2, compliance is crucial. Firstly, without it, your vehicles can’t even access the site. This will stop you from carrying out work or taking on jobs that require your vehicles to access these sites. HS2 requires all HGVs visiting the project to be covered by the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) at Silver Level to uphold minimum standards. Failure to comply will result in HS2 taking action to ban or suspend fleets and their drivers for non-compliance. Our solution is to provide consultation and installation services to ensure your vehicles are compliant with HS2 regulations. This will not only help you avoid bans and suspensions, but also give you peace of mind knowing your vehicles are ready to go on site. Contact us today to find out more about how we can help you meet HS2 compliance requirements.
