Lucas gains FORS accreditation
Lucas has gained accreditation for the Freight Operators Registration Scheme (FORS), a road safety initiative promoted by Transport for London that is being increasingly adopted by major construction industry clients such as Mace and Sir Robert McAlpine.
The scheme is designed to ensure operators of large vehicles are running and operating their fleets to the highest levels of safety required under the law, adopting best safety practices in and around construction sites, but also insisting on additional measures to improve road safety in and around London such as installing special sensors on large vehicles to warn drivers of cyclists on the road.
FORS is a funded certification scheme aimed at ensuring that fleet operators work lawfully and to best practice by meeting the FORS standard. Lucas sets the utmost importance on health and safety considerations at work and welcomes the chance to join the FORS audited scheme that demonstrates we operate to standards above the legal minimum.
