R.R. Memmory Haulage’s Emma Coulson-Smith becomes 800th FORS Practitioner

Office manager Emma Coulson-Smith

Office manager Coulson-Smith (pictured) has been recognised as a FORS practitioner after attending as series of workshops.

The workshops are designed to provide a grounding in best practice for commercial vehicle operators.

Topics in the workshops include developing fleet management policy, safe and efficient fleet management, and monitoring and measuring road fleet performance.

All of the nine workshops must be completed to gain FORS practitioner status.

Coulson-Smith said: “FORS represents best practice across all areas of fleet management - obviously we want to be as compliant as possible but by implementing FORS we’ve gone beyond that, in order to raise standards.

“We’ve applied a strict schedule to make sure we are following the FORS Standard, such as regular licence checks and eyesight checks for drivers.”

Fully funded training is available for current FORS members, and there is a requirement throughout FORS Bronze, Silver and Gold for operators to demonstrate that staff undergo approved, progressive training.

The Sheffield-based haulage company has already attained FORS Bronze member status.
