Websters of Royston Ltd is based in Royston, Hertfordshire and has been operating as a family business for over 15 years. We are mainly contract hauliers in the construction industry to Tarmac and Hansons supplying aggregates and asphalt to the south region. Myself, Spencer Webster as the company director has been in the haulage industry since leaving school. We have a fleet of 8 vehicles including articulated and rigid vehicles.
We came across FORS as a contractual condition through Tarmac and realised it would help to benefit our business, our drivers and our company profile. Websters of Royston Ltd passed their Bronze accreditation first time and we felt that it would be beneficial to improve our standards further and go for Silver which has improved our commitment to training and safety standards. Since gaining our Silver accreditation we have been utilising all the available benefits from FORS including all drivers taking part in completing the E learning modules. Also the toolbox talks and online tool kits have all been utilised since gaining our Silver accreditation.
“WEBSTERS OF ROYSTON LTD IS COMMITTED TO CONTINUALLY IMPROVING ON ROAD SAFETY STANDARDS AND THE SAFETY OF VULNERABLE ROAD USERS”
FORS Workshops have been beneficial to myself and staff we have all attended the Safe Urban Driving course, Staying Legal course and have undertaken the E Learning modules online.
“Since being involved with FORS, Websters of Royston Ltd have worked hard to maintain the standard of their fleet and the training of our drivers”
The table below shows the usage of a average trucks mileage and fuel use per litre per year. As the table shows we have made a slight improvement on our usage and will continue to look at different ways we can reduce this further.
|Mar 15- Feb 16||Mar 16- Feb 17|
|Average fuel used per truck per year in litres||33317.98||29368.15|
|Average distance travelled in miles per truck per year||53592||47736|
|Litres used per Mile||0.62||0.61|
Achieving Gold is recognition of the hard work and commitment that our company have put into improving our driving safety standards across our fleet and our efforts to reduce out fuel usage and enables us to show the standards to which we work to others. By getting a Gold accreditation means to us that we will continue to move our business forward and showing commitment to staying compliant within the industry.
