Ashville Aggregates is a very proud to be a (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) FORS Gold Standard approved operator. Ashville Aggregates has an extensive fleet of Grab, Tipper, and Skip Lorries ready to service our established and new customers.
The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme encompassing all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions and improved operations. FORS helps fleet operators to measure and monitor performance and alter their operations to demonstrate best practice.
FORS have an extensive training programme with a variety of opportunities for both managers and drivers. To meet the FORS Standard Ashville Aggregates was required to demonstrate that it adheres to the accreditation processes rigorous requirements. Within the Gold Standard Accreditation Scheme, Ashville Aggregates together with FORS ensure that all staff undergo approved continuous training and continued professional development. The programme also includes induction, compliance, and vulnerable road user training. The accreditation process also consists of remedial and refresher training to ensure skills are fully embedded.
