NPD Light Haulage for services across South Yorkshire that you can trust
Sheffield based NPD Light Haulage has now further strengthened its operational compliance to a FORS Silver standard, on demonstrating their commitment to improving their overall fleet safety and environmental impact and efficiency.
With this recent achievement, NPD Light Haulage has become one of only 50 general hauliers in the UK to gain Silver accreditation.
NPD Light Haulage has held a FORS Bronze accreditation since 2017 and last year decided to work towards FORS Silver accreditation.
To achieve FORS Silver, operators must commit to monitoring levels of fuel,safety and fines and charges, ensure their entire fleet is fitted with additional vehicle safety equipment and implement an approved, progressive driver training programme that focuses on the safety of vulnerable road users.All our vehicles are fitted with beacons and strobe lights, relevant signage, additional blind spot minimisation mirrors, front and rear facing cameras, white noise reversing alarms and fall protection. All of our drivers and office staff have completed the Vulnerable Road User Training module and the Van Smart course, which we found informative and a very worthwhile experience. Safety of our employee’s other road users is of primary importance to us as an organisation.
A very important part of the scheme is the regular review process of current practices and to strive for continual improvement in relation to our safety procedures. We have found that the majority of sites requesting FORS Silver accredited hauliers are located in central London, but we have delivered to sites requiring our FORS Silver certification throughout the UK. This accreditation also allows us to deliver to sites that require CLOCS registered companies.
Craig Barber, Managing Director at NPD Light Haulage, said: “The FORS Silver accreditation is a great coup for us.
It sends out a strong signal to our customers and competitors that we are committed to improving the safety of our fleet, staff and the general public.”
