THE UPDATED FORS Standard version 5, ProVision which came into effect on 14 January 2019, recommends that fleet operators use of vehicle equipment and technology. The scheme now also recognises online and cloud based systems as equal alternatives for storing documents such as completed safety checks.

Even to achieve bronze accreditation fleet operators must have every bit of information on their fleet. This includes registration details, location of vehicles, and the total number of vehicles and trailers. ProVision Go allows fleet managers to store this information in one central place. It can then be retrieved at anytime and anywhere.

With ProVision Go’s Checklist Manager, fleet managers can create personalised checklists to make walk round checks as easy and efficient as possible. Drivers can then complete the checks on their phones, while fleet managers can review and approve any repairs.

At a base level, the new bronze level standard allows fleet operators to make use of strategically placed cameras in place of mirrors to protect vulnerable road users (VRUs).
