Premier Haulage (UK) Ltd is waste management Company based in Brentwood in Essex. Family owned and managed since 2015, we continue to build on our reputation for excellence. We work for main industry leaders who are all FORS accredited companies. Hina Mirza, our General Manager is our elected Fuel and Emissions Champion as well as our Road Risk Manager and she 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 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’
All our drivers have completed their Safe Urban Driving course which was funded by the Transport for London. As you can see on our vehicles we take cycling in London very seriously. We have also invested heavily in vehicle safety systems such as cameras, nearside proximity sensors and audible alarms for all our vehicles.
‘We have improved our MPG across the fleet from 11 MPG to 14 MPG’
We improved our MPG across the fleet from 11 MPG to 14 MPG, kept our accidents and PCN’s to zero for the past 2 years by making sure our driver select the best possible route to our sites and reduced our Idling 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. Milebay Consultancy Ltd has helped us achieve our FORS Accreditation.
