There is availability for the following dates/locations:

We will monitor demand and will add more dates/locations as required.

This training will help operators meet the Road Risk Champion requirement as set out in FORS Standard version 5 Silver requirement ‘S5 Professional development’. Alternatively, this requirement can be met by attending fully funded FORS Practitioner workshop 2 ‘Managing work-related road risk’ and workshop 5 ‘Collision procedures and analysis’. See Annex 2 of FORS Standard version 5 for details.

A transitional provision is in place to assist operators with meeting this new requirement. This means that those with a Silver audit between now and 31/12/19 can plan and evidence the training for completion by their following Silver re-approval audit in 2020. Please see Annex 6 of the FORS Standard version 5 for details.

  • Develop company road traffic collision management policy and procedures
