Windsor Waste Management is proud to have achieved Silver accreditation from the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS).

The aim of the scheme is to raise the level of quality in fleet operations and to demonstrate and set apart those operators which achieve exemplary levels of best practice in safety, efficiency and environmental best practice.

Having successfully maintained Bronze accreditation for some 7 years, and with a commitment to continuous improvement, it was important for Windsor Waste Management to continue a focus of raising standards in the safety and environmental efficiency of our operations and attain Silver accreditation.FORS Silver Wayne 06 02 2020 crop

To achieve the FORS Silver Accreditation, Windsor Waste Management had to demonstrate that we could deliver our fleet operations to a high standard in a number of areas, including vehicle safety and maintenance, environmental performance and driver training and communication. This has involved implementing a number of changes to processes and procedures to ensure we are able to more closely measure and monitor performance particularly in relation to fuel use and emissions.

As part of our ongoing programme to improve the safety of our fleet and as a requirement of the silver standard, our waste collection vehicles are fitted with four way CCTV camera technology and all vehicles over 3.5 tonnes are fitted with left turn audible warning systems. A system which helps to increase cyclist and pedestrian safety.

Another important aspect of the FORS Silver accreditation is ongoing training and communication and as part of our commitment to continuous professional development, all drivers have undergone a series of practical and classroom based training courses, including Cycle Safety, Safe Urban Driving and Counter Terrorism.

Our Group Operations Manager Wayne Londors, also acting as our Road Risk, Fuel and Noise Champion within the business commented:

“We’re all delighted to achieve the accreditation, it’s been an exciting and challenging process to go through. This achievement helps the business improve its performance at a variety of levels, but has environmental benefits and all-important safety in mind too. We’re keen to build upon the improvements for the benefit of the people that work for us and anyone that is impacted by the service we provide.”
