FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) is a voluntary scheme and is only awarded to hauliers demonstrating the highest levels of fleet management with emphasis on the safety of other road users, with additional emphasis on vulnerable road users.
The FORS audit is an intensive test of how well run our fleet is in terms of safety, driver wellbeing, driver training, efficiency, environmental concern and many other aspects of quality of management. In addition our vehicles are now fitted with extra equipment to improve the safety of, and awareness to, other road users.
Kenny McCallum, ALG Group H&S Manager stated “With safety at the forefront of our operations – this latest addition to our suite of accreditations and certifications reinforces our company wide commitment to securing the safety of our customers and the general public at large and helps reinforce our OSHAS18001 commitments on safety matters. Of course we also understand that whilst FORS is currently a voluntary accreditation – as with all these schemes – it may soon become obligatory especially around city centre movements. We are delighted to have secured FORS accreditation for Abbey Logistics Group.”
