Materials and construction firm Tarmac has retained its FORS accreditation, allowing it to continue auditing its entire UK and subcontractor fleet.

Tarmac was the first operator to win FORS whole-fleet accreditation in 2014. It currently has more than 1,800 vehicles in its fleet that are FORS accredited.

Sean McGrae, Tarmac’s senior national transport manager, said: “We’re delighted to retain our whole fleet accreditation from FORS which highlights our ongoing commitment to improving safety and environmental levels across both our own and our subcontractor fleet, as well in the wider supply chain.”

Peter Binham, TfL freight and fleet programme manager, said: “Tarmac’s innovative approach to develop an accredited in-house capability to audit its fleet and subcontractor vehicles represents a major corporate commitment to boost vehicle and driver safety standards.

“By taking these steps the company has helped to efficiently drive compliance, embed consistent standards and provide its subcontractor drivers with the tools to embrace behavioural change.”
