FORS Basics (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme)
April 20, 2021
Launched in 2016, FORS (the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme), is the first in the UK to allow companies to demonstrate their commitment to managing road risk, reducing environmental impact and improving operational efficiency. FORS allows fleets to improve their overall road safety and gives companies an opportunity to show their customers and other members of their supply chain the importance they place upon the safety of others as well as the safety of their employees.
What is FORS?
FORS is a voluntary scheme designed to drive up standards in safety and to set best practices. The scheme goes far beyond the physical safety items required to be fitted to vehicles such as cameras, side scans etc. In doing so, it incorporates areas such as Drivers (licence checks, professional development and working hours) and Operations (routing, fuel, emissions and counter-terrorism).
There are three levels of FORS Accreditation; Bronze, Silver and Gold.
Once a company has achieved accreditation there are regular audits to ensure compliance is being maintained.
There are fees for subscription and auditing, which are dependent on the level required and the number of vehicles in the fleet. For further information please visit the FORS website or call FORS direct on 0844 809 0944
