FORS Bronze and Silver Compliance
At Seguro we are here to assist you gaining and maintaining you FORS accreditation (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme)
To pass FORS Bronze you need to submit evidence of the below:
- Policies and procedures
- Risk assessments
- Supporting tool box talks
- Walk round training
- Spot checks
Seguro can assist with compliant documentation and advice on how to implement these items.
This will then be audited by an independent assessor who will visit your premises and audit the completed paperwork.
If you require FORS Silver you will need to gain FORS Bronze first and hold this for at least 3 months before progressing to Silver. Moving to FORS Silver isn’t quite as challenging as gaining your initial Bronze accreditation, but you will need to demonstrate that you’ve consistently maintained your standards and are ready to step up to the next level.
Examples of the areas that come under the spotlight include:
A targeted training programme:
- Better working practices
- More efficient vehicles
- If any of your vehicles is more than 3.5 tonnes, you’ll also need to equip them with audible warning systems covering left turns, reversing and blind spots. You’ll be asked to produce evidence such as invoices, receipts, and photos.
You will of course also have to pass your Bronze FORS audit every year to maintain Silver status.
There is currently no fast track to FORS Silver–there is a scheme called CLOCS which you automatically attain under FORS Silver–however entry of CLOCS does not grant you FORS Silver.
