Wilson James achieves FORS Gold at Heathrow

3rd April 2017

Wilson James is proud to hold FORS Gold at its London Consolidation Centre (LCC) and has now achieved the same high standard at Heathrow. FORS is the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme and recognises the highest levels of fleet safety, efficiency and environmental standards.

Wilson James at Heathrow achieved FORS Silver accreditation in January 2017 and started to prepare the Gold application straight away. Gold is all about what efficiencies the company has made though driver training, implementation of FORS policies and adapting to new ways of working. Vehicle performance data needed to be analysed by inputting all fuel figures, incidents, fines and charges collated though FORS Silver.

Wilson James drivers had to undergo additional FORS vulnerable road user training and register on the FORS website for access to e-learning courses. Two Wilson James Heathrow managers also signed up to 9 workshops to become FORS Practitioners.

All Wilson James policies and procedures including the drivers handbook, recruitment process, vehicle checks, drivers health checks, training and development needed to be revised. They also produced a published case study to describe the progression from FORS registration to the attainment of Gold and demonstrate the improvements against all performance indicators.
