Specialist Insulation Supplies recently applied to FORS to become a member of their fleet operator accreditation scheme, and I am pleased to say that with our existing stringent operations procedure we have managed to secure a bronze level certification from our first audit. The FORS scheme is in place to raise the level of quality within fleet operators, and by achieving our Bronze certification we have demonstrated that our fleet operation is being run in a safe, efficient & environmentally friendly manner.
The FORS bronze audit highlighted that we employ good operating practice, and that we take both driver & vehicle safety extremely seriously, the audit also regonises our transport continuous improvement programme, which was introduced to effectively manage our fuel and general vehicle usage.
The successful pass of FORS bronze audit is a credit to all of the constant hard work and attention to detail put in by the SIS transport team of drivers and manager. I would also add that the support and assistance from FORS has been fantastic and the audit was a fairly painless exercise, which demonstrated to us that they are indeed auditing you to see what you do and want to support new members.
