Galldris Constructions Craig Brown has become the 900th FORS Practitioner to graduate from the keystone fleet management training programme.
Brown (pictured) said: “Without fail, all the workshops contained essential information to help me better execute my daily responsibilities.
“Group talks were particularly insightful, generating ideas and gaining a different perspective from individuals who do the same job as me albeit from different transport sectors.”
Alongside being a FORS Silver member, the company is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2018, and has also confirmed its commitment to attaining FORS Gold status.
“Since embarking on the FORS Practitioner journey,” said Brown.
“I have implemented a number of key developments within our own operation which have resulted in improved safety for cyclists and drivers, better reporting with the fitment of telematics and a more comprehensive driver training programme courtesy of FORS online eLearning modules.
“Importantly, there is now a commitment from my company, and from me personally, to continue to improve the management of our vehicles and drivers.”
FORS’ director John Hix said: “Craig is one of a growing number of transport professionals who have raised their game as a FORS Practitioner.
“He, and his fellow graduates, will go on to enjoy flourishing careers in the transport industry, at the same time delivering key safety and commercial benefits within their operations.
“Training is a cornerstone of FORS accreditation, and it extends to our three principles of safety, efficiency and environmental protection.
“Accordingly, it’s hugely encouraging for us to see 900 transport professionals having now graduated as FORS Practitioners and now implementing those core principles in the workplace.”
