We are pleased to announce that King Lifting has maintained its Gold Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme status demonstrating our continued commitment to exceeding industry standards.
The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme for fleet operators which aims to raise the level of quality within fleet operations, and to demonstrate which operators are achieving exemplary levels of best practice in safety, efficiency and environmental protection.
The FORS Gold accreditation demands additional standards such as environmental impact, ensuring emissions are reduced and driver training and vehicle safety systems progressed to decrease incidents on the highway. Another significant part of the scheme is to demonstrate how King Lifting is achieving recruitment and retention targets such as recruiting from schools, colleges, universities, the armed forces, job seeker and job match services, industry schemes and campaigns. We are also proactively promoting FORS to our supply chain to ensure that our key suppliers are also delivering the same great standards as King Lifting.
The renewal of our status allows King Lifting to be the only mobile crane rental business in the UK to have obtained the FORS Gold accreditation at this time.
