Commenting about the FORS Practitioner workshops, Peter Morrow, FORS Manager for Northern Ireland, said:
“The sessions in April and May will complete our first run of all 10 FORS workshops in Northern Ireland. To date, we’ve had attendees from a wide variety of sectors, including construction, manufacturing, general haulage, and refrigerated transport. Delegates have found the sessions extremely useful and we’re looking forward to some attendees becoming qualified FORS Practitioners once these workshops are complete.” He added, “this shows demonstrable commitment to their own long-term career growth and the wider logistics industry.”
Under ‘D4 Professional Development’ in the FORS Standard, fleet operators are required to identify and document the training needs of drivers and other staff involved in the fleet operation, as well as to implement a Professional Development Plan (PDP). FORS Practitioner is recommended professional development for all managers, trainers and supervisory staff. Though attendance to the workshops is not mandatory under D4, it should be considered for inclusion in the PDP for relevant staff.
