We’re proud to be apart of FORS and strongly recommend all companies to join the scheme. Lee Griffin, Technical Manager 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 and improving our MPG. FORS has helped us improve our filing systems and procedures.
‘FORS has helped us achieve compliance and safety’
All our drivers have completed their Safe Urban Driving course which was funded by the Transport for London.
‘We have increased our MPG by 9.5% in the past 12 months’
We haven’t had any accidents or PCN’s in the past 2 years. We have also implemented an Anti-Idling Policy to bring our Standards in line with the new FORS version 4.0 standards.
|MPG||PCN’s & Accidents|
|Dec 2014 – Nov 2015||26.48 MPG||0|
