1st Call Tippers Ltd are based in Bexley, Kent and specialise in Waste Management for the construction industry. Danny Bowling, Director, has seen huge benefits for 1st Call Tippers Ltd from FORS. The safety features now fitted to our vehicles have reduced incidents and our staff training programme has helped with our employees understanding of their job roles & responsibilities. 1st Call Tippers Ltd have being running since 2010.
‘We were introduced to FORS through our clients and immediately realised the procedures and standards required to achieve the Bronze accreditation was exactly where we wanted our company to be.’
We passed our Bronze assessment first time which gave us the platform and confidence to proceed to the Silver Accreditation. Keen to distinguish ourself from our competition we immediately began work to achieve this goal and wanted to achieve Gold too.
FORS has helped 1st Call Tippers Ltd in many ways, a key area we have identified improvement is staff training and refreshers. The FORS system encourages our staff to be proactive with their training, allowing them to identity their own areas for improvement.
‘We used the FORS accreditation as a spring board to promote our newly formed company to a whole host of clients. The response was overwhelming’
‘We immediately began monitoring all our idling and MPG reports and we started to see a big improvement to drivers driving behaviour thanks to all the Training Tools FORS gave us which we passed onto our drivers.
‘FORS has improved our Policies and Procedures and help improve our MPG, Accidents and PCN’s across the whole Fleet’
We have improved our MPG across the whole fleet from 6.12 MPG to 7.70 MPG and kept our PCN’s and accidents down to zero in the past 2 years.
|MPG||Number of PCN’s|
|April 2015 – March 2016||6.12 MPG||0|
|April 2016 – March 2017||7.70 MPG||0|
Annual improvement in MPG
Achieving the Gold Accreditation would show our commitment to continued improvement.
FORS has transformed our approach to our business and I believe will only promote a positive reputation for our industry. We strive to be more efficient, professional and environmentally friendly. Gold Accreditation can only aid our endeavours. We work closely with Milebay Consultancy Ltd to help us stay on top our all our requirements and moving forward keeping us up to date with all legislation changes.
