FORS is hosting a free workshop specifically for road transport operators in Northern Ireland to highlight how FORS voluntary accreditation can help businesses raise standards.
The free FORS ‘Going for Bronze’ workshop is due to take place at Transport Training Services in Crumlin on 22nd November, and is open to all operators who wish to find out more about FORS.
The event will give attendees the chance to engage with the FORS Northern Ireland team to become more familiar with how FORS works to promote high standards across the road transport industry with respect to safety, efficiency and environmental protection.
With the launch of the new FORS Standard version 5 at its annual Members’ Conference in October, the Northern Ireland event also seeks to explore the new FORS Standard, highlighting how operators can start their FORS journey with FORS Bronze accreditation, the first stage in the progressive scheme.
Peter Morrow, FORS Manager – Northern Ireland, said, “For operators who are not yet FORS members, the workshop is a chance to meet us under no obligation, ask questions, chat with other operators and find out the specifics of how to become FORS Bronze accredited.”
Regional Members Briefing
A separate FORS Members Briefing will also be held on 22nd November, for operators who are already FORS members. The briefing will discuss the roll out of the new FORS Standard version 5, due to come into effect on 14th January 2019, with updates on FORS activity in the region, an open discussion around ongoing industry issues and trends
Peter Morrow said, “The Regional Briefing will give FORS members in Northern Ireland the chance to discuss the key changes within the new FORS Standard in detail, with the FORS team serving their area.”
