Sam Nash, our Fleet Co-ordinator is our elected Fuel and Emissions Champion and he explains how important FORS is to our Company.
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 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 while improving our MPG. FORS has helped us improve our filing systems and procedures
All our drivers have completed their Safe Urban Driving course which was funded by the Transport for London.
‘FORS has helped us achieve compliance and safety’
We have improved our MPG across the fleet from 14.9 MPG to 15.5 MPG, this was achieved by making sure our drivers select the best possible route to our sites and reduced our Idling across the Fleet.
