Shaun Bromby, of Southampton-based Lambert Brothers Haulage, has become the 450th Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) practitioner.
FORS says this significant milestone reveals the popularity of the practitioner workshop programme and demonstrates the impressive level of commitment to raising professional standards by FORS accredited operators.
Bromby said: "I am delighted to achieve FORS practitioner status and proud to be the 450th individual to reach this grade.
"The workshops have enabled me to gain a better understanding of FORS and its objectives and therefore ensure that Lambert Brothers Haulage make the most out of its accreditation."
All operators accredited by FORS have the opportunity to become a FORS practitioner.
Operators must complete each of the nine FORS modules providing guidance on topics including road transport policy; work related road safety; safe and efficient fleet management and monitoring road fleet performance.
FORS practitioner workshops are designed to keep fleet managers up to date with industry developments and best practice in safe, green and efficient operations and to help companies maintain and progress through their FORS accreditation.
John Hix, director of FORS said: "There are now more than 3,800 FORS operators nationwide demonstrating a commitment to continued professional development in road transport operations.
"This showcases a firm commitment to improvements in road safety, sustainability and raising professional standards."
