02 June 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970

The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is celebrating after notching up its 450th Practitioner.

FORS regards this as a ‘significant milestone’, revealing the popularity of its Practitioner workshop programme as well as demonstrating the level of commitment to raising professional standards by accredited operators.

Shaun Bromby of Southampton based Lambert Brothers Haulage is the 450th FORS Practitioner. “I am delighted to achieve FORS Practitioner status and proud to be the 450th individual to reach this grade,” he declared. “The workshops have enabled me to gain a better understanding of FORS and its objectives and therefore ensure that Lambert Brothers Haulage make the most out of their accreditation.”

All operators accredited by FORS have the opportunity to become a FORS Practitioner. Operators must complete each of the nine FORS modules providing guidance on topics including road transport policy, work related road safety, safe and efficient fleet management and monitoring road fleet performance.

The Practitioner workshops are designed to keep fleet managers up to date with industry developments and best practice in safe, green and efficient operations and to help companies maintain and progress through their FORS accreditation.

“We are thrilled to announce the 450th FORS Practitioner and there are now over 3,800 FORS operators nationwide demonstrating a commitment to continued professional development in road transport operations,” explained John Hix, Director, FORS. “This displays a firm commitment to improvements in road safety, sustainability and raising professional standards.”
