Bishopsgate has been successful in gaining bronze accreditation from the Transport for London Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme.
FORS is a voluntary scheme for fleet operators. Its purpose is to raise the level of quality within fleet operations, and to demonstrate which operators are achieving the standards. FORS is a method of recognising those fleet operations which comply with the requirements of the FORS standard. The FORS standard is based upon legal compliance, safety, efficiency and environmental protection.
In order to achieve bronze status, Bishopsgate had to undergo an independent assessment of its operations to demonstrate that it has effective systems, policies, and procedures in place to meet standards in four areas: drivers & driver management, vehicle & fleet management, transport operations and performance management.
Debbie Goy said: “The FORS membership is recognition of the continued improvements we have made within the company. As a member of the FORS scheme we now have access to a wide range of services, advice and additional training which will help us to make even greater improvements in the future.”
