Van Smart training is fully accredited to keep your company compliant with the latest Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS) standard, managing Work Related Road Risk (WRRR) contractual requirements and Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) – Silver legislations. So, what exactly are FORS, CLOCS and WRRR and why is it important for your company to stay compliant with these legislations?
Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme
The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme that promotes best practice for commercial vehicle operators. With over 4,800 members, FORS is gaining recognition as the transport industry’s go-to accreditation scheme. FORS encompasses all aspects of safety, efficiency, and environmental protection by encouraging and training fleet operators to measure, monitor and improve performance. FORS provides accreditation pathways for operators of any type, and for those organisations that award contracts and specify transport requirements.
Construction Logistics and Community Safety
CLOCS brings the construction logistics industry together to revolutionise the management of work related road risk (WRRR) and ensure a road safety culture is embedded across the industry. By working together we can help protect pedestrians, cyclists, motorcycles and other users who share the roads with construction vehicles.
WRRR (transport for London)
Work Related Road Risk (WRRR) is a freight safety initiative aligned with the Mayor’s Vision Zero approach to road danger reduction. No death or serious injury on our roads is acceptable, or inevitable.
Freight safety is a pressing issue. Trucks and vans are more likely to be involved in fatal or serious injury incidents with pedestrians and cyclists than other vehicles. We believe that more can be done to prevent this.
We are putting road danger reduction at the heart of everything we do. If you operate trucks or vans in our supply chain you will need to meet higher road safety standards. These are known as WRRR requirements. Since 1 January 2017, we have been turning vehicles away from our sites if they do not meet these standards.
When one simple training course can help you comply with all of these, help maximise your opportunities for new contracts and also help to reduce the likelihood of accidents happening, why wouldn’t you book a Van Smart training course for your business?
