corbyn 1We came across FORS when tendering for work across London. When we looked at the requirements and benefits of joining the scheme we saw that they fitted in perfectly with our ethos of improving safety whilst complementing our drive to improve fuel efficiency and reduce our environmental impact. We take compliance and safety very seriously so we achieved our Bronze and Silver Accreditation first time. FORS did help us by providing training and tools that improved the policies and procedures. The performance management toolkit really helped us set our targets for reducing our carbon footprint and Penalty charge notices while improving our MPG. FORS has helped us improve our filing systems and procedures.

FORS has helped us achieve compliance and safety

We have invested heavily in vehicle safety systems such as cameras, nearside proximity sensors and audible alarms for all our vehicles.

We have increased our MPG by 22 % in the last 12 months’

 We have reduced our accidents by 29% and improved our MPG across the Fleet. We have achieved this by making sure our driver selects the best possible route to our sites and reduced our Idling across the Fleet.
