Aggregates firm meet bronze level requirements of the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme
HAMPSHIRE-based Raymond Brown have been awarded Bronze status in the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) – a voluntary accreditation programme that promotes best practice for commercial vehicle operators.
It encompasses all aspects of safety, efficiency and environmental protection by encouraging and training fleet operators to measure, monitor and improve performance.
A spokesman for Raymond Brown said: ‘As a business, we are always looking for ways to improve and accreditations from industry standards help us benchmark our progress. FORS enables us to demonstrate to both our customers and the local communities that we work to standards above the legal minimum and that we are constantly trying to improve the way we work.
‘In order to achieve accreditation, we were required to meet the strict criteria set out in the FORS standards – a process that is verified by a rigorous formal company audit undertaken by an independent FORS auditor. Many thanks to Simon Webb, Steve Parker, Julie Davies, Nick Muir and Heather McLintock who all worked very hard during the audit process and in helping us achieve this accreditation.’
The FORS badge will sit on the rear of Raymond Brown’s vehicles, alongside the Project Pictogram symbols, demonstrating that the company is a responsible and safe operator.
