Working with FORS for a safer industry
We are excited to announce that SMAS Worksafe is now a FORS Affinity Partner.
For those who aren’t totally familiar with FORS, it is a voluntary accreditation scheme for fleet operators that aims to elevate standards of safety, efficiency and environmental protection within fleets. Established by Transport for London, FORS is recognised across the construction industry as a benchmark for quality, so we’re delighted to be joining forces and helping to power health and safety accreditation in the sector.
The work that FORS does to ensure safety best practice and reduce work-related road risk is of vital importance to the construction sector. This of course ties in neatly with SMAS Worksafe’s mission to enable contractors to show their commitment to workplace safety, secure work with trusted organisations through the Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) assessment, and lead the way in workplace safety regulation and compliance.
Under a new initiative called FORS H&S Accreditation and Training– Powered by SMAS, we will help FORS accredited contractors to demonstrate their health and safety compliance to clients and meet construction and related industries’ pre-qualification requirements. This initiative is exclusive to FORS accredited operators, and it includes a 30% discount for contractors who book their SSIP assessment through SMAS Worksafe for the first time. We’re also offering a 15% discount for those booking Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) training courses with us for the first time.
We are delighted to have the opportunity to share our wealth of experience with the FORS community, and in doing so, help drive up standards of safety in fleet operations across the country.
