FORS operators are ‘going for gold’

Sep 07, 2015
Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is pleased to announce that there has been an increase of 129% in Gold accredited operators since the scheme was rolled out nationally earlier this year.

FORS is a national accreditation scheme that improves fleet activity through improving safety, reducing emissions and raising industry standards.

FORS is graduated into three levels - bronze, silver and gold - and operators who achieve the FORS Gold accreditation demonstrate exceptional performance in road safety, reducing emissions and a commitment to raising industry standards.

The scheme now has 87 Gold accredited companies meaning that over 21,700 vehicles are now accredited with the FORS Gold standard.

Steve Agg FCILT, Chairman of the FORS Governance and Standards Advisory Group said: “We are delighted with this rapid growth in Gold accredited operators. This demonstrates the industry’s commitment to raising standards. We will work with current and new organisations to ensure that more operators graduate through the scheme and that the benefits of FORS are experienced nationwide.”

FORS was established as a nationwide scheme in February, giving operators throughout the UK the opportunity to show their commitment to professional standards. The uptake since the scheme became self-funded has been remarkable, demonstrating both the popularity of FORS and the demand for a single professional standard nationwide.
