Hanson UK fleet achieves FORS gold

Published:  11 May, 2016

Hanson UK’s entire fleet of company-owned vehicles has received the highest standard in the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS). The gold award was previously held only by Hanson’s cement division, but has now been awarded across all business lines, a great accolade for the company’s 352 vehicles and 11 operating centres.

FORS is a voluntary accreditation standard encompassing lawfulness, safety, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions and improved operations. Gold accreditation is awarded to exceptional operators who have demonstrated that they meet the specific requirements covering management, vehicles, drivers and operations.

“The FORS gold award demonstrates that we continue to place safety and compliance at the core of our business values,” said distribution manager Ray Govier. “The fact that we have gained this top recognition across all our vehicles is testament to our long standing commitment to health and safety.”
