W.S. Hunt’s Transport are proud to have been a FORS Bronze accredited member for a number of years and have recently achieved FORS Silver accreditation.
The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is an accreditation scheme that aims to improve fleet activity throughout the UK and beyond.
We have held the Bronze level certification for three years and felt that the safety and efficiency offered by the Silver certification was something that represented our company ethos.
It has been a considerable investment in making our vehicles as safe as possible with the currently available technology. In order to achieve FORS Silver it was necessary to have the equipment to comply with the CLOCS (Construction Logistics and Cyclist Safety – http://www.clocs.org.uk) and as such we are also CLOCS compliant.
All our vehicles are fitted with blind spot elimination technology to ensure that other road users are as visible as possible to our drivers with a four camera system which allows the driver to quickly see if there is anything around the vehicle and that we are as visible to other road users with strobe lights and a verbal message to warn other road users that we are turning left.
FORS Silver allows us to continue to provide a high level of service in an increasingly safety orientated world. If you would like to know more please contact us.
Who is it for?
FORS is voluntary and open to any company operating a fleet including vans, lorries, mini-buses and coaches.
What is it for?
The aim of FORS is simple. One over-arching scheme that encompasses all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, economical operations and vehicle emissions. FORS is a voluntary scheme that helps improve operators’ performance in each of these areas.
For vehicle operators, it offers peace of mind that they are meeting their legislative requirements, as well as helping to increase efficiency, reduce costs and win work.
FORS provides a quality and performance benchmark for van, lorry, mini-bus, coach and bus operators and allows access to a range of exclusive accreditation benefits.
Accreditation also provides us with the tools to become safer, greener and more efficient. It is an excellent way to prove to our existing and potential customers our credentials as a high performing operator who adheres to high quality standards.
