The free FORS Professional Anti-Idling and Congestion-Cutting toolkit, which includes a separate driver guide, posters and a toolbox talk, offers practical advice to help FORS operators reduce engines idling and minimise congestion.
Idling engines can create more emissions than engines running at 30 mph, therefore new technology and good driver behaviour are key to reducing levels of carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter.
The manager toolkit, which is aimed at HGV, van and PCV operators, provides advice on procuring different types of technology and developing campaigns, as well as introducing an anti-idling and congestion-cutting policy and briefings for drivers. It is accompanied by a driver guide, as well as posters and a toolbox talk.
The driver guide addresses some common misconceptions through a series of myth busters, and offers useful top tips on vehicle fitness, routing and planning, reducing idling, and fuel saving.
