10 Year Milestone For FORS

FORS, the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme, has said its Practitioner programme has been one of its greatest successes after the course of fleet management training modules celebrated its 10th anniversary in April.
Since the first FORS Practitioners completed their initial courses in April 2012, over 2,800 transport professionals have gone on to graduate; each equipped with a fleet management knowledge base allowing them to deliver safety and commercial benefits in the workplace.
“Popularity of the Practitioner programme among fleet managers remains high with 20 new FORS Practitioners achieving full qualification in March alone,” confirmed technical advisor Glen Davies.
• As a FORS Champion, Stirling based Ogilvie Construction ensures its commercial transport activities, including sub-contracted trucks, operating on their behalf have FORS stipulated as a contractual requirement.
Group health and safety manager at Ogilvie, Stewart Morrison, explained: “We have a duty of care out on the road, and our FORS Champion status gives us far greater transparency and control right across our transport activities. It provides a logical roadmap to best practice for our transport partners to follow and a good number of our sub-contracted operators were already FORS Bronze members.”
