FORS appointed as a CLOCS strategic partner


FORS has become a strategic partner with CLOCS and will strengthen its collaboration with the organisation.

The fleet accreditation scheme will play a pivotal role in campaigning to raise awareness of work-related road risk and supporting those within the construction sector to achieve best practice and the safest fleet operating standards.

While FORS has been a CLOCS Champion since 2013, the scheme has been formally appointed as a CLOCS strategic partner following the launch of a new collaboration programme.

FORS joins a number of other existing CLOCS Champions and influential industry stakeholders in helping to promote the safety of vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians and cyclists. 

FORS concession director, Ian Henderson, said: “The CLOCS Strategic Partnership initiative aligns perfectly with our mission to help FORS Accredited Operators work safer, smarter and greener.

“FORS has always had a close working relationship with CLOCS – after all, operators with FORS Silver accreditation are automatically compliant with CLOCS, so the two standards work neatly in tandem.

“I’m excited to see how this strengthening of ties will bolster our joint efforts in raising safety, efficiency and environmental standards on the roads, protecting vulnerable road users, and supporting the FORS Community.”

CLOCS Strategic Partners are not required to make any ‘formal’ commitment, other than pledging to work together to identify opportunities for mutual support, such as promoting each other’s initiatives and other key activities. FORS will provide its resources, expertise, support and thought leadership to enhance the portfolio offered by members of the CLOCS Strategic Partnership.

CLOCS programme director, Andy Brooke, added: “CLOCS has enjoyed a long standing and collaborative relationship with FORS. The CLOCS Standard is aligned with FORS Silver accreditation as we believe this is the right benchmark for fleet operations. We’re now delighted to have FORS as a CLOCS Strategic Partner and look forward to working even more closely to help create the right environment for the safest vehicle journeys.”
