Going for Bronze with FORS in Belfast

The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is to hold its first ever ‘Going for Bronze’ workshop in Northern Ireland; a second workshop has just been added, so successful has been the response.

The workshops aim to support companies looking to achieve FORS Bronze accreditation which serves to confirm an operator employs good practices and complies with the requirements laid out by the FORS Standard. This includes demonstrating dedication to driver and vehicle safety, combined with improving operating practices through effective monitoring of fuel and tyre usage.

fors-2Whether you are preparing for your assessment for the first time or addressing issues raised at a previous assessment, these workshops are specifically designed to guide and support you through the process from registration to Bronze accreditation.

Developing, documenting and communicating road transport policies is essential for fleet operators, but knowing where to start and how to develop effective policies can seem daunting.

The workshops – to be held at AECOM, 9th Floor, Clarence West Building, 2 Clarence Street West, Belfast on Wednesday March 1st – will help you through the process of developing policy and processes and give guidance to creating your own written documents.

The events, which are free of charge, though you need to book to secure your place, run from 10am through to 1.30pm, and from 14:00 – 17:30, with light refreshments provided, and will cover a number of topics including:

* The benefits of Bronze – what is available to you

* Overview of the FORS standards

* How to meet the Bronze requirements

* Examples of non-conformity and avoiding the pitfalls

* Next steps after assessment
