Construction company Walter Lilly is working to sets new standards for its supply chain by championing the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS).
The firm – which is one of 35 FORS Champions – is using its status to promote the FORS scheme throughout its supply chain and reduce the risk of harm from its operations.
Shaun Frampton, director at Walter Lilly, said: “It is our mission to send everyone who works on our building sites home at the end of each day in the same fit and healthy condition they arrived in, but we also have a responsibility to ensure members of the public are not harmed in any way as a result of our building activities.”
He added: “FORS accreditation reduces the potential for road traffic accidents by a delivery to or from one of our construction sites, and has been positively received by our clients, showing that we take health and safety very seriously. We also have a number of site-based staff that cycle into and around London every day, so cycle safety is an important concern for us.”
Paul Wilkes, FORS business services manager, said: “We look forward to seeing Walter Lilly further embed FORS into its supply chain procurement, and congratulate the company on its commitment to encouraging all types of vehicle to become accredited and demonstrate best practice.”
