As a promoter of fleet efficiency, productivity and environmental impact here at HaulTech we understand the importance of Silver and Gold standards: They’re essential for helping you to reduce, mitigate and manage the risks associated with operating commercial vehicles in the same environment as vulnerable road users. We see that in order to help you meet these standards, vehicle safety equipment is imperative.
To support fleet operators FORS have set out the following equipment standards which accredited operators must adhere to, if they are to maintain their quality, safety and environmental standards when operating a fleet of vans, trucks and plant, all of which contribute to the protection and safety of vulnerable road users:-
- Blind-spot camera
- In-cab monitor
- Close proximity warning sensors
- Audible reversing system
- Audible left turning warning
