Your safety is our priority!
All of our drivers are given extensive training to ensure they maintain the highest level of care whilst on the road and on site.
We are a multi depot FORS member, accredited to both Bronze and Silver standards with Gold on the way.
We are FORS compliant, to adhere to strict regulations and employ ethical practice when operating our fleet in major towns and cities such as London, Birmingham, St Helens and Liverpool.
FORS is the acronym for “Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme”. It is an accreditation which has to be earned rather like an ISO accreditation.
It is aimed at both documenting and practicing diligent and safe fleet operation, by the employment of equipment and training of operators. The purpose is to clarify many aspects of their areas of prime responsibility.
Our drivers, for example, receive training out of the cab to improve their awareness. Putting the driver in the shoes of a potentially vulnerable road user such as a cyclist.
The level of electronic safety equipment varies from level to level. At silver level, there is a minimum of four exterior cameras on board. There is also an automatic blind spot sensing system.
Hi-visibility LED signage is used to raise awareness among road users outside the vehicle of potential dangers.
