Our Enduring Commitment to Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme Membership

From the earliest days of Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS), Backwatch has been deeply involved, proudly holding an esteemed membership status. Notably, Backwatch stands out among its peers as one of the select few companies whose systems underwent rigorous independent evaluation even before attaining Associate membership status (Membership No. A00012).

Navigating the Landscape: Understanding Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme Version 6.0

The latest iteration, version 6.0, of the FORS standards has been a beacon of clarity for operators, offering comprehensive guidance on compliance requirements. As a result, this update equips operators with a thorough understanding of the essential equipment and practices needed to ensure their vehicles adhere to the stringent FORS protocols.

Beyond Compliance: Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme as a Cornerstone of Fleet Safety

FORS is not merely a regulatory checklist; it’s a cornerstone of fleet management, dedicated to fostering a culture of safety. It serves as an indispensable tool in creating secure environments for fleet operators, drivers, vehicles, and all road users. While vehicle safety equipment is paramount, FORS initiatives encompass a holistic approach to safety.

Tailored Solutions for Diverse Needs

At Backwatch, we reject the one-size-fits-all approach typically associated with FORS Bronze, Silver, and Gold packages. Instead, we understand that each operator is unique, with distinct operational requirements. Therefore, our approach involves crafting bespoke solutions tailored to meet the diverse needs of our clients.

Personalised Guidance: Beyond Silver and Gold Packages

The conventional categorisation of packages often falls short in capturing the nuanced requirements of operators. Our experience has shown that the similarities between FORS Silver and Gold equipment requirements can be misleading. Therefore, we pride ourselves on providing personalised guidance, ensuring operators invest in equipment aligned with their specific needs and preferences.

Consultative Collaboration: Guiding Towards Compliance

Our ethos at Backwatch revolves around collaboration and consultation. We believe in guiding our clients through the compliance journey, demystifying the mandatory requirements and exploring additional enhancements tailored to their unique circumstances.

Upholding Safety Standards: A Shared Responsibility

Backed by our unwavering commitment to excellence and safety, Backwatch remains dedicated to supporting operators in navigating Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme compliance complexities. Therefore, we uphold the highest safety standards across all facets of fleet operations. Our collaborative approach ensures operators receive guidance to navigate FORS requirements effectively. Moreover, with our expertise, we empower operators to implement safety measures and drive initiatives for road safety. Backwatch stands as your trusted partner; consequently, we ensure fleet safety and efficiency. Join us in our mission for safer roads; above all, underpinned by a commitment to safety and excellence.
