Quattro (UK) Ltd are based in Park Royal and supply a variety of services to the construction and utilities sectors in West London and adjoining areas. Eamon O’Loughlin, Transport Director, explains how Quattro (UK) Ltd have increased awareness of vulnerable road user safety through the FORS approved safe urban driving, e-learning modules and the additional safety equipment fitted to our vehicles.
Quattro (UK) Ltd were early adopters of FORS and have worked on many projects that endorse the scheme including Crossrail and TFL.
Quattro (UK) Ltd has always taken its organisational responsibilities seriously and this is demonstrated by our many accreditation’s including ISO 9001 & 14001, QSRMC and BES 6001. Needless to say we were prepared for our initial FORS Bronze assessment and passing first time confirmed our commitment.
Once we had our Bronze accreditation we start working hard on our Silver application through driver and management training with the courses provided by FORS. FORS also encouraged us to look at our operations in a different way with the result that we have seen improvement in real costs such as improving fuel usage and those hidden costs including improved driver retention.
‘Safety is our first priority’
FORS has been a key element in our safety program over the last few years and we are constantly aiming to improve this by investing in new vehicles fitted with the latest safety equipment. Driver and management safety awareness training is also of the utmost importance.
