Brocklehurst successfully renews its FORS Bronze Status for another year.

Posted By Steph Mitchell

Another year, another successful re-audit. February sees Brocklehurst re-establish its place as a FORS Bronze Standard Holder.

The FORS scheme is operated by Transport for London but is increasingly used by companies operating across the UK to benchmark operational standards.

Bronze accreditation confirms that an operator employs good transport practices and complies with the requirements laid out by the FORS Standard. This includes demonstrating dedication to driver and vehicle safety, combined with improving operating practices through effective monitoring of fuel and tyre usage.

Speaking on the re-audit, Dave Webster, Managing Director had this to say; ‘Achieving FORS Bronze demonstrates again that we continue to set good standards of fleet safety and operational management. It reinforces that our practices and policies are being run safely, efficiently and in an environmentally sound manner. We are pleased to be able to offer this level of service to all customers old and new.’
