O’DONOVAN Waste Disposal has successfully achieved its Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) Gold status for the tenth consecutive year, demonstrating its ongoing dedication and commitment to road safety, fleet innovation and driver training.
O’Donovan Waste is the first independent haulier to reach the impressive milestone, having continually made significant investments in its business and operations which have resulted in the retention of the stringently audited accreditation for ten years in a row. To achieve a FORS gold standard, fleet operators must demonstrate and evidence exemplary levels of compliance based upon safety, efficiency, and environmental protection. O’Donovan has ensured it has not only met these requirements, but has consistently exceeded the audit criteria.
Jacqueline O’Donovan, managing director of O’Donovan said, “We are delighted to achieve ten years of being a FORS Gold accredited business and this clearly shows our level of commitment to ensuring operational excellence in our everyday operations. Best practice, enhanced safety modifications and our embedded training sits at the heart of our business and it has contributed to us raising the bar.”
FORS Director, John Hix, said: “FORS Gold is designed to really test operators. It demands FORS members prove they have thoroughly embedded extremely high levels of professional best practice in relation to safety and efficiency, so it is no small achievement to maintain this level for 10-years.
O’Donovan Waste have long championed the benefits FORS can bring hauliers, with Jacqueline O’Donovan a member of the FORS Governance and Standards Advisory Group (GSAG) since it was established in 2015, and we are delighted that Jacqueline and the team at O’Donovan continue to value and support FORS. We look forward to what the company’s next ten years’ at FORS Gold will bring.”
