Maintaining our FORS Silver Accreditation from recent on-site Audit
Following on from a recent on-site audit, Lucas has once again retained its FORS (Freight Operators Registration Scheme) Accreditation.
The scheme is designed to ensure operators of large vehicles are running and operating their fleets to the highest levels of safety and efficiency required under the law and adopting best safety practices. The scheme also insists on additional measures to improve road safety in London such as installing special sensors on large vehicles to warn drivers of cyclists on the road.
We have successfully maintained our FORS Accreditation for the last 3 years and we aim to keep this going by continuing to implement the importance on health and safety considerations at work. We are delighted that the FORS audited scheme demonstrates that we operate to the standards well above the legal minimum.
At Lucas, we monitor a range variables in connection with our fleet of vehicles including fuel emissions and upload this information to our online systems and dedicated App. We also undertake driver training to ensure our fleet practices are safer, greener and more efficient. As a result the latest FORS assessment judged that we met their requirements.
