Things at Burlington Aggregates keep going from strength to strength. Back in November, we launched our brand new website, at the start of the year our new volumetric mixer was delivered and is now on the road, and, we are now happy to announce we have achieved FORS accreditation for our haulage fleet.
FORS (The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) is a voluntary scheme for fleet operators which aims to raise the level of quality, best practice in safety, efficiency and environmental protection. The FORS accreditation demonstrates to our customers that Burlington Aggregates is committed to exceeding industry standards when managing its work-related road risk.
The FORS accreditation is available to any organisation that operates a fleet of vehicles including vans, lorries, buses and coaches. FORS is a method of recognising fleet operations which comply with the strict requirements set by FORS. The accreditation is based upon four pillars; lawfulness, safety, efficiency, and environmental protection. In order to gain the FORS accreditation, Burlington Aggregates needed to meet the requirements of the standard by an approved, certified body. Originally the FORS accreditation launched in London back in 2008 but was later rolled out nationally in 2015.
Becoming FORS accredited differentiates us from our competitors and proves that we are continually investing in the company and promoting best practice throughout Burlington Aggregates.
For current and prospective customers, you can be assured that as a company Burlington Aggregates is committed to delivering a professional service and maintaining high standards in work-related road safety.
Burlington Aggregates would like to highlight the hard work from our Transport Manager, Ruth Ellison, who worked tirelessly to help us gain the FORS Accreditation.
