FORS Bronze – Your starting point for FORS success
FORS covers lorries, vans, buses, coaches, fleet cars, motorcycles and scooters, although HGVs are the main focus.
It’s a voluntary scheme, but a growing number of major companies and organisations make FORS Bronze status a contractual requirement — maybe that’s why you’re here!
To achieve Bronze status, an operator has to be legally compliant and also able to demonstrate that they follow good practice across all areas of their business.
Here’s how we’ll help you get there with the Road Skills FORS Master plan, our one-stop suite designed to make your journey to accreditation as painless as possible.
You simply choose what works best for you and your business…
The Road Skills FORS PASS Manual — every transport manager’s bible
The new FORS Standard Version 4.0 was launched in November 2016 and marks more than a simple upgrade. Compared with the version it replaced, its 36 sections include..
- 2 new sections, and
- 9 new policy statements
Operators also need to submit much more evidence and overall there are a lot more hurdles to jump, so we simply rewrote our FORS PASS Manual, configuring it exactly to the new Bronze standard and creating a transport manager’s bible!
Why is it called the FORS PASS Manual? The PASS is short for ‘pre-audit support service’ but as we guarantee success, it’s simply because we guarantee you will pass!
The Road Skills FORS PASS Manual V 4.0 is a standalone product that includes…
- all policies and procedures
- all the guidance you need to create the required evidence
- all risk assessments
- all checklists
- all supporting tool box talks, walk round training, and spot checks.
You’ll have your own hard copy to keep to hand as well as access to a complete digital version. Within your first six months as a FORS PASS customer, we will update the electronic copy for free whenever the FORS team makes changes. After that, you can join other smart operators and sign up for our continuous subscription service, which means you won’t get caught out by future changes.
