Our consultants are all FORS Practitioners, our trainers are also fully trained, and our training centre is Jaupt approved AC01554, as we also offer Driver CPC Training. We are a one shop stop for all your transport requirements. We help companies and businesses right through their FORS journey, from Bronze all the way through to Gold. We have elected Peter Lambert who is our Managing Director as our Fuel and Emissions Champion and he explains how important FORS is to our Company.
We fully support how important FORS is to the Transport Industry and thought we should also become FORS accredited as we help all our clients through the whole process, we should lead by example and also achieve Gold as best practise. FORS fitted in perfectly with our ethos of improving safety whilst complementing our drive to improve fuel efficiency and reduce our environmental impact.
We take compliance and safety very seriously, we achieved our Bronze and Silver Accreditation first time. FORS did help us by providing training and tools that improved our policies and procedures, but we also make sure all our clients become FORS accredited and complete the FORS e-Learning training.
The performance management toolkit really helped us set our targets for reducing our carbon footprint and improving our MPG. FORS has helped us improve our filing systems and procedures.
‘FORS has helped us achieve compliance and safety.’ – Peter Lambert – Managing Director

‘We have kept both our parking fines & Charge and accidents done to zero for the past 2 years.’ – Peter Lambert – Managing Director
We achieved this by making sure we always selected the best route possible to all our clients sites and we plan ahead before leaving the office.

- We only have one driver and we get him to complete a comprehensive Medical Declaration on a annually basis even though the FORS Standard states once every 5 years. It’s also mentioned in the drivers handbook that if they at any point in time start suffering from a medical condition they need to notify the company ASAP as well as if they need to start taking medication prescribed by their GP or over the counter drugs. We will then investigate it to see if it’s still safe for the driver to be driving for the company and we may even ask the driver to get a letter from his doctor informing the company if he is still able to drive for the company. We will then start doing more driver assessments on the driver to make sure he isn’t a risk to the company or anyone on the road.
- We have recently adopted a recruitment policy to try and help us recruit young drivers into the Transport industry.
- We only have 1 van and 1 driver. We only use our office for parking our van and completing Driver CPC training. We only have bicycles that we load/ unload on site into our van and all our servicing is done by main dealers at their sites not ours. The only noise generated is when our van are idling so we can carry out our defect checks. Our van has white noise reversing alarms fitted to it.
- We carry out Driver CPC training and Safe Urban Driving course at our site as well as our clients sites across the whole country. As we rely on our customers asking us to deliver a course at various offices across the whole country, we never know where we are going until they need us. Therefore we can’t afford to try and move anything via barge or train as we have 12 bicycles that we would have to try and arrange to move to and from clients sites and there is no other method than using a van. So using a van is the most cost effective way of transporting our bicycles. Our van is a small 3.5 tonne Euro 6 engine. We have looked at electric vehicles and because of the size of the load we carry and the fact that we cover the whole country we might not always have the ability to charge electric vans when we travel across the whole country.
We will continue using what FORS has taught us to improve our MPG and reduce any wasted idling we might have and keep our Parking fines and Charges to zero.
Gaining FORS Gold Accreditation shows how dedicated we are as a company to improving road safety and the safety of all vulnerable road users in London as well as nationally. We will continuously use what FORS has taught us to help reduce our carbon footprint and make the roads safer for everyone that uses them.
