Wiltshire Grab Hire Become FORS Bronze Accredited

Dec 05, 2018

We are proud to announce that Wiltshire Grab Hire have achieved the FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) Bronze accreditation. Having successfully passed the Bronze audit, customers can be assured that our muck away and aggregate delivery operations are being run safely, efficiently and in an environmentally sound manner across our fleet of grab hire and tipper vehicles.

WHAT IS THE FLEET OPERATION RECOGNITION SCHEME?

It’s a voluntary scheme for fleet operators that aims to raise the level of service within fleet operations. The FORS accreditation is an industry recognised mark of quality highlighting the operators that are achieving the standard.

A successful audit is valid for twelve months and covers the commercial operation of a range of vehicles including trucks, vans, buses, coaches, motorcycles and scooters involved in the movement of:

  • Materials
  • Products
  • Valuables
  • Equipment
  • Tools
  • Waste
  • Food
  • Vehicles
  • Luggage
  • People

Fleet operators can be granted three levels of FORS accreditation: Bronze, Silver and Gold. The entry level Bronze accreditation demonstrates an operator that is legally compliant and following best practice.

WHY IS THE FORS ACCREDITATION IMPORTANT?

As a customer or potential customer, our FORS Bronze accreditation gives you peace of mind that you are employing a reputable company that runs a quality operation using best practices across the business. You can rest assured that we provide a safe and efficient service while having a commitment to continual improvement.

Being recognised as a FORS operator demonstrates our commitment to improving operational efficiency, reducing environmental impact and managing road risk to improve fleet road safety. It also gives our staff access to training, eLearning modules and workshops to improve their knowledge and skillsets to provide an even better service.

REACTION FROM WILTSHIRE GRAB HIRE

Ben Avenell, Director of Wiltshire Grab Hire, commented:

 “The objective to attain the FORS Bronze accreditation was to enhance our level of compliance and help to attract new contracts.

The audit was carried out and all criteria have been met to achieve the FORS Bronze accreditation. We will be looking to achieve our FORS Silver accreditation in the future, but for now we are proud to be recognised as a FORS accredited operator”.
