Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme FORS

In September 2016 Geotechnical Engineering were delighted to be awarded Bronze Accreditation under the Fleet Operation Recognition Scheme (FORS). By achieving Bronze accreditation, we demonstrated good practice for vehicle and driver safety, combined with demonstration of improving operating practices and effective monitoring of fuel and tyre usage.  FORS accreditation is often a requirement from main contractors for the supply chain to demonstrate commitment to safe and sustainable fleet management.

The scheme is voluntary and encompasses all aspects of vehicle safety, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions and improved operations.  It helps fleet operators to measure and monitor their performance and alter their operations in order to demonstrate best practice.

To meet the Bronze Standard, we were audited on our vehicle management, our vehicle maintenance, our drivers, and how we operated the vehicles. Each requirement being based around legal compliance, safety, efficiency and environmental protection.
