Donna Cook, Director, explains how Essex Grab Hire Ltd have achieved huge reductions in fuel use through FORS.
We 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 complaince and safety very seroiusly 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’
Our Drivers have completed the Safe Urban Driving Course and we have also invested a lot into safety equipment for our lorries.
‘We have improved our MPG saving us money & Co2’
We have increased our MPG by 11% over the past 12 months by making sure our driver selects the best possible route to our sites and reduced our Idling across the Fleet:
|Jul 2014 – Jun 2015||6.18||73,280||36,938|
|Jul 2015 – Jun 2016||6.88||95,776||43,443|
|Percentage improvement||11%||Increased by 30%||Increased by 17%|
Annual improvement in MPG across the fleet.
Gaining FORS Gold Accreditation shows how dedicated we are as a company to improving road safety and the safety of all vulnerable road users in London as well as nationally. We will continuously use what FORS has taught us to help reduce our carbon footprint and make the roads so safer for everyone that uses them. We have also managed to make a significant saving by reducing our fuel usage and improving our MPG.
